Bio

Dr. Yang is medical director of the UW Medicine Eastside Specialty Center and a UW clinical associate professor of medicine. He has particular expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, hypertension and lipid disorders. He is especially interested in the primary and secondary prevention of heart disease through aggressive risk-factor modification and lifestyle change.

He also conducts research on new cholesterol-lowering therapies and appropriate treatment options for patients with coronary artery disease.

Dr. Yang received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Stanford University and his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He completed his internal medicine residency and fellowships in cardiovascular disease and advanced cardiac imaging at Stanford University School of Medicine. Prior to joining the faculty at UW Medicine, he was a clinical instructor and physician-scientist at Stanford.

Dr. Yang has been on the faculty at UW Medicine since 2007 and is actively involved with the teaching of medical students, residents and fellows. He is in charge of the cardiology curriculum for the internal medicine residency program at the University of Washington and is director of the annual cardiology continuing medical education course.

He is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and nuclear cardiology.

Patient Care Philosophy

I believe I have a responsibility to help patients make educated medical decisions by providing them with the most up-to-date information about treating their heart-related conditions. Patient care should be a partnership between patient and provider that is based on mutual trust and open communication.

Food, wine, golf, travel and classical music.

Clinical Interests

Primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease, hypertension and lipid management, atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure and cardiac imaging.
