great doctor, takes time and concern for your need. I did not chose to have a knee problem but I chose Dr. YATES and UPMC came along.

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.
