Dr Yates has been my doctor for 25 years. I refuse to ever let him retire! No one has ever been a better caretaker for me. He understands how I think, what is important to me, and makes me laugh.

Dr Yates and his staff are exceptional. I always feared going to the doctor and I told them this and they make me feel really welcome when I go there and take steps to assure I am comfortable and things aren't too scary. Exactly what I needed. Love Dr. Yates and his staff.

Everyone in Dr. Yates office is a professional. I have been using this group for over 25 years and they are the best.

Dr. Yates is exceptional - Kind, personable, highly skilled, a patient educator. He made me feel like the most important patient in his practice. His interview was comprehensive but kind. He addressed sensitive areas with understanding and compassion. His exam was thorough. He continuously put me at ease. He is also my brother's physician and he makes us both feel like we are being cared for by a long-term family friend.
