At the Virginia Center for Health and Wellness, where he works with Dr. Andrew Heyman, Dr. Yang’s integrative practice has focused on working with complex patients who have responded poorly to conventional medicine by seeking the root causes of their illness and guiding them on a path toward healing. His integrative approach emphasizes the importance of listening to patients, focusing on the root causes and epidemiology of diseases, respecting biochemical individuality, and partnering with patients to make meaningful changes in their health habits.
A strong focus on understanding functional endocrinology and thyroid dysfunction has been one of the pillars of his practice. Dr. Yang is an expert in integrative treatments for thyroid diseases, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, autoimmune conditions, cardiometabolic diseases, and many other conditions.
