Dr. Yang

"Dr. Bo Yang and his professional team performed an Aortic dissection on me thus saving my life. Doctor Yang's approach to me and my worried wife before-and-surgery was calm, professional, to the point, and reassuring. My recovery after surgery was life changing as well.

Dr. Yang's bedside manner was like we were part of his family. He revealed exactly what he needed to see for my recovery to go home. Dr. Yang saved my life.

I have made significant changes to take advantage of this 2nd chance. Dr. Yang's skill set at the team at the University of Michigan is divine."
