Dr. Yates took my call on a Sunday, and arranged an early morning visit on Monday. Xrays were done in a timely fashion. He was able to manipulate my knee to straighten it and reduce the pain substantially. I went to work afterwards! Discussion and followup planning were excellent. What a find! Thank you, Dr. Yates!

Dr. Yates is the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever see. His care is state of the art and his staff are all wonderful. He is also a bit of an internist as well and looks at the patient's overall well being and health.
