I have nothing but great service from Dr. Yates and his staff, from regular office visits to all my surgeries.

July 18, 2016

Dr. Yates is the best. I have seen him for years and he has always taken the time for me.

Dr. Yates is not my primary care physician who is not a part of the UPMC system. He was my surgeon for total replacement of my left knee. Throughout the process from initial assessment of my knee to follow-up post-surgery care and advice (now at my 5th week), I have only praise and thanks for all of the treatment I received at UPMC Shadyside. As for Dr. Yates I offer special thanks for his skill, my outcome, and his interpersonal conduct.

July 06, 2016

I an very happy with the care I have received from Dr. Yates. I have had a very good result from knee replacement surgery.

Always this provider is generous and professionally competent!

June 30, 2016

Dr. Yates has been our family orthopedist since his arrival at UPMC. Three surgeries for my wife and one for me. We feel that he has always shown great bedside manners. Never have we felt anything but respect for him as a surgeon and as a person. You should feel fortunate to have on your staff.

Dr. was right on time with scheduled appointment

June 20, 2016

Dr. Yates is always respectful and caring for my situation. He speaks with me so that I may understand. He also has a sense of humor. Patients like that!

June 16, 2016

This provider has given me the best care possible. He is so highly skilled and intelligent, but he is also warm and easy to talk with. I have an immense level of trust in him, and would recommend him highly to any family or friends (and already have). I feel at ease with him and value his expertise. (interesting, motivational and funny guy, too).
