After completion of residency, Dr. Yee completed a two-year fellowship in oculofacial plastic surgery where she worked in a high-volume trauma setting and spent years honing her skills in intricate periocular/facial reconstruction and the latest techniques for surgical facial rejuvenation. This fusion of both surgery and the arts led to a perfect blend of function and beauty.

Dr. Yee graduated from Indiana University with an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts and Art History in 2001 with Summa Cum Laude honors. She graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2006. After completion of residency, Dr. Yee completed a two-year fellowship in oculofacial plastic surgery where she worked in a high-volume trauma setting and spent years honing her skills in intricate periocular and facial reconstruction.

In 2018, Dr. Yee was the recipient of the Patient’s Choice Reward recognizing the difference as a physician she has made in the lives of her patients.
