Dr. Stevenson was drawn to the medical profession because she yearned for a career that is both highly practical and intellectually stimulating.  She enjoys working with her hands and relieving others of their pain and suffering. Dr. Stevenson has always been very intentional in acquiring a breadth of skills that equip her to deal with surgical settings.  She enjoys the “bread-and-butter” general surgeries and endoscopy procedures as well as cases unique to practice settings with limited specialty availability.  She is passionate about bringing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) to the region.  Yuan has always wanted to be a general surgeon that would serve a rural community. “I love to practice medicine where my patients may be my neighbors, friends from church, or folks I will see in the grocery store and restaurants.”
