My visit with Dr. Yates was a good one because I needed to be checked for my next series of euflexa shots and the visit with Dr. Yates was a good one. My orthopedic doctor, Vonda Wright left UPMC'S practice.

I think Dr. Yates did a terrific job replacing my hip. I am so happy I chose him to be my surgeon! All my follow up at his office has been quick, yet thorough and everyone has been pleasant and helpful.
