Dr. Yates is one of the best in the business. I would not consider using another Dr. for my orthopedic/joint care. My past experiences with him have exceeded my expectations.

January 30, 2017

I had a very good felling and it made me do very good with my problem. It made it easy to heal. Thank you all.

***** 5 STAR DOCTOR ***** Dr Yates is WONDERFUL. I saw him yesterday. I had my first full night sleep last night after over 2 weeks of pain and he fixed it with manipulation & a shot. I am so very pleased with Dr. Yates. He is an amazing doctor and he also did a wonderful job replacing my husband's hip over a year ago. We tell all out family & friends how pleased we are with Dr. Yates and his staff.

Dr. Yates is the most knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate Doctor that I have ever been examined by. He's operated on me three times. The first time wa a knee replacement revision. The second time was a total knee replacement of the other knee. The third was a total hip replacement. UPMC is lucky to have Dr. Yates on their orthopedic staff.

Dr. Yates is a knee specialist not a GP. . As far as my knee goes this is an excellent office.

January 23, 2017

Just an office visit to Dr. Yates. No hands on experiences.

January 23, 2017

Dr. Yates was highly recommended and I was not disappointed. He took a great amount of time with me during our initial consult answering my questions in an easy to understand way. He did not rush us through the exam and he made the decision to have my knee replaced by him an easy one. I had initially made 3 different apps with 3 different surgeons so that I could feel I was making the right decision as to which surgeon to choose. Dr. Yates was my first appt and when I got home from the initial appt I cancelled the other appts. The follow ups were treated with the same level of care and concern. I would not hestate to recommend Dr. Adolf Yates as an excellent choice.

Dr. Yates - what can one say about him! Outstanding, Awesome, Intelligent, A+++ for knowledge.

January 11, 2017

Did not have to wait in the waiting room...was taken to X-Ray and back to visit with Doctor. All questions were answered and whole process was under an hour. Very satisfied.
