Dr. Joanna Yeh is a pediatric gastroenterologist who practices in Westwood and Santa Monica. Her clinical and research interests include general gastroenterology, nutrition, fatty liver disease/non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and obesity. She is board certified in pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology, and speaks limited Spanish and Mandarin.
In addition to her in-clinic work, Dr. Yeh is working to improve access for pediatric GI patients by piloting the division’s telemedicine practice. Online video visits via computer or smartphone are now available through the patient portal (UCLA MyChart) for certain follow-up appointments for returning pediatric GI patients. New patients must still be seen in person. Some insurances may not cover telemedicine.
Dr. Yeh received her medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco. She then completed her pediatric residency training and fellowship in pediatric gastroenterology at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital.
Prior to joining the UCLA Health Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in June of 2016, Dr. Yeh practiced gastroenterology at the UCSF Children’s Hospital Oakland.
