All experiences with Dr. Yates and his staff are excellent. I have been his patient since 1978 and have total confidence in him.

Doctor Yates and his staff do an awesome job in every aspect of care. They are concerned caring and very helpful. The front desk staff seems to change frequently but the groups that come in always seem to be very knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful.

I am a long term patient and have always had wonderful care.

Dr. Yates is the best doctor I've ever had (and I've seen many physicians over the years). He is kind, caring, thoughtful, thorough, funny, and quite simply, a wonderful physician and very nice man. He always takes as much time as needed and never makes me feel rushed. Dr. Yates is a true gem and I feel very lucky to have him as my PCP.
