Dr. Adolf Yates meets all of my expectations for care provider. He is an outstanding surgeon and he is an outstanding doctor in the ways that matter to a patient. Dr Yates never seems in a hurry to finish my appts even though I am sure he has a million things to do. He always answers my questions. He is kind. I didn't choose him for his kindness but it is an extra big bonus.

I would have liked for my care provider to have stayed in the office for a little while longer. I wanted to understand better about the condition of my left knee and which knee would more likely need surgery when it would be recommended. I need to have medical conditions explained more slowly.

Dr Yates is the best, both professionally and personally.

November 29, 2017

felt Dr. Yates wasn't too intersted in helping me unless I wanted surgery. offered no excises to help with pain or prescribed anything to help release some of pain. He basically said I would have to live with pain for at least 5 weeks until an MRI could be approved. I will not go back to the doctor again. I have been in pain for 3 weeks now and will seek now seek non surgical relief. Dr Yates stated he is a hip and back surgeon giving me the impression that unless I was seeking surgical remedies, I really shouldn't be seeing him. Very disappointed as he supposedly has a 5 star rating.

It's always a good experience seeing Dr. Yates. He is compassionate, professional, knowledgeable and never makes you feel rushed.

I love Dr yates he did my knee repacements now I have a broke femur. will be seeing him in the future and maybe more knee surgery

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 and the entire staff are simply fantastic. I recommend them all the time. They make me proud to be a UPMC employee.
