Had a very good experience with not only Dr. Yates, but with the staff

Dr. Yates is an excellent provider and I am very pleased after my hip replacement.

I love this doctor. I have recommended him to many friends and acquaintances. He is such a hard worker, very conscientious, attentive to detail, compassionate, funny (when appropriate) and I feel that he genuinely cares about me. He explains everything in words that I can understand, treatment plan is collaborative. Wish there were more practitioners like him.
