i was pleased Dr. Yates did not push me to have a knee replacement but suggested alternate things I can do. He suggested cortisone in conjunction with the Euflexa shots if pain becomes intense. He also gave me a script for Physical Therapy to keep the knee functioning better. Thank you Dr. Yates

Visited Dr. Yates as new patient for hip pain as recommended by normal caretaker. Medical records not yet available in UPMC system. Excellent visit. On time, short, sweet, and very effective. MRI recommended with results to other doctor. Not hip problem...most probably back problem
