Dr. Yates is a great doctor and surgeon . Would highly recommend him.

Dr. Yates is great....I have already referred several friends and family to him.

March 01, 2017

I greatly appreciate Dr. Yates LISTENING to me. He listened when I said I have difficulty walking up and down steps. He listened when I said I could no longer squat. He listened when I said I climb with difficulty. He listened when I said I have terrible spasms in the back of my legs.

I was very pleased with timing and care

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.

***** 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.
