Dr. Yates is far more than an orthopedic specialist. We discussed drug interactions, physiotherapy, my exercise regimen . . . and he was always superbly well informed on all such matters, giving sound advice and thoughtful recommendations. He's a great doctor.

Dr. Yates is a brilliant, compassionate surgeon who exceeds my expectations! I would only go to him for orthopedic care. He took the time to get to know my knee problems and pain. He tried a less invasive treatment regime for six years. Finally surgery was necessary. He was precise and detailed in the knee replacement surgery, and the outcomes are awesome, straight knee with minimum pain and bone loss! He answered all my questions, took care of me in the hospital, and has given me my life back!

I received the information that I needed regarding my situation to my complete satisfaction during the appointment.

This was a new referral from my PCP for evaluation of a long standing problem

May 26, 2016

Dr. Yates is a very open individual who shows true concern and compassion for the patient's condition and concerns. Not only is he a technically gifted surgeon, but also just a down to earth real nice guy.

Excellent ability to describe alternative measures to care for problem. Excellent follow-up post surgery in describing what had been found and what procedures were carried out.

The provider, the office staff, the nurses, the hospital staff all were the best I could have Every one that was involved in my care and recovery made the experience the very best I could hope for.
