Dr Yeh is a native of California. He received a B.S. in Biology at San Diego State University with an emphasis on the arts. Graduating in 1992 with a medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences, he did his Internal Medicine Internship and Residency at Highland Hospital. In 1995, during the birth of The Hospitalist, Dr Yeh began his career at Summit Hospital. As the Hospitalist movement expanded nationally, Dr Yeh was involved with multiple aspects of its growth, giving lectures and sitting on medical advisory boards. He had started several hospitalist services including Alta Bates, Northbay Health System, Alameda Hospital, Queen of the Valley and Eden Medical Center, and has served on numerous leadership positions including Medical Directorships, Committee Chairpersons and MEC Membership.
Initially focussing on the inpatient setting, he played a role in all aspects of a Hospitalist. From day rounding to nocturnist, from intubation to critical care, he has cared for tens of thousands of patients. He later transitioned to the more expansive components of post-acute care, with a focus on the intersection of Psychiatry and Internal Medicine.
From the richest to poorest communities, Dr. Yeh treats all patients with the care and respect they deserve. He sees each patient as an individual, each with their own set of issues and challenges. His goal is for the patient to exceed expectations and establish the greatest quality of life possible.
As a backdrop to his medical career, he believes that music and art enrich the human condition, noting that music triggers the release of several neurochemicals which in turn influence somatic responses. Dr. Yeh believes that mind and body are not a single path, but rather, existence is a myriad of material and immaterial which can be influenced by music and art.
