Dr. Yeilding has treated my Nanna Norma Dorsett for almost 4 years. She has told me he’s the most loving, caring and professional doctor she has ever met. My Nanna feels like she would not have made it without Dr. Yeilding and God. She would highly recommend anyone to him who needs an oncologist! She was in stage 4 lung cancer that had spread to the ribs, and she has been in remission for 3 years which is amazing!! Thank you Dr. Allen Yeilding and your staff for everything you have done for her!

Our family LOVES Dr Yielding and his staff. He took on our mothers care around 1998. He is/was her and our saving grace. He diagnosed and treated my mom when no one else could and when they was telling us to not have hopes in her pulling thru he encouraged us to not give up on her. He has a heart of gold and love for his patients/patients family like no other Dr I know. He's def one of the best! Even if he is a Bama fan. ?? (Inside joke) Keep doing the best and being the best. ????????
