“With the advent of better technology, such as oocyte and embryo cryopreservation, women now have more options than ever to help them pursue their dreams of family planning on their own terms.”
Additionally, Dr. Yih enjoys guiding patients through their care and treatment.
“I went into this field of medicine because helping a patient create a family is one of the most fulfilling things that one can do in medicine. My job is to educate patients so they can make an informed decision about what works for their family planning interests.”
