Biography

Family medicine specialist, Shirley Yee, MD, believes the cornerstone of a good patient-physician relationship is trust, empathy, care, and compassion. She and her staff provide all patients with the same care that they would provide to their own families. After all, every patient is someone’s child, sibling, spouse, parent, or grandparent. Dr. Yee also believes in open, honest, communication and strives to be approachable to her patients. She feels that listening to the patient is the key to building the foundation for a lifetime of effective care. This same approach to effective communication and compassionate care is shared by the entire staff.


In addition to providing comprehensive primary care, Dr. Yee has a special focus on preventative health, and encourages her patients to take a proactive approach to health care. Many health conditions can be prevented. For this reason, Dr. Yee puts primary focus on keeping patients up-to-date on vaccines, mammograms, colonoscopies, and preventative screenings. She will work tirelessly to meet her patients’ needs and help achieve their health care goals.


In her spare time, Dr. Yee stays active by walking, hiking, and lifting weights. She also enjoys reading, fine chocolate (in moderation) and wine tasting.
