I've been a patient of Dr. Yankama for around 40 years. It's rare to be able to put one's health and trust in one person, she was that person. Her professionalism, knowledge and genuine care for her patients as a doctor and surgeon, was always there and evident. She will be missed..

Review for Dr. Yankama

Dr. Yankama has been my doctor for over 25 years. She is always thorough, compassionate and caring. I especially appreciate her willingness to stay abreast of all the changes in the OBGYN field and to ensure her patients benefit from the most current treatments and procedures. Thank you!

I had a "total" knee replacement of my right leg. I recovered fully within 10 months of having it done. I recommend him highly for this operation. Also, I would advise physical therapy promptly within two weeks of surgery to avoid any tissue scarring.

Review for Dr. Burkhardt

Dr. Yankama is a excellent Dr. in my opinion. She is very easy to talk to about anything not just a health problem. I have had her as my Dr. for some time. She is always willing to help you and try to solve your health problems she has with me. I always felt at ease when I left her office.

Review for Dr. Vijayaraghavan

16 to 30 minute wait is a joke. It's more like 2 to 3 hours every time you go. She is good but has way too many patients. She should not dismiss you as a patient, because you waited over 2-1/2 hours to see her and left. But you did call the next day. I would advise you to not choose this doctor.
