She has special interests in general skin health and the treatment of skin cancers; dyspigmentation, scarring, and hair loss in skin of color; and rejuvenation by utilizing non-invasive cosmetic techniques including neurotoxin (Botox), filler, and laser procedures to achieve a natural, refreshed appearance.

In her spare time Dr. Yee enjoys baking, traveling, and spending time with her husband (a gastroenterologist at the University of California, San Diego) and son. She was an avid golfer in high school and has been working on getting her swing back in action.
