If you are looking for a good Orthopedic Surgeon do yourself a huge favor and keep on looking. This doctor decided long before I met him what he thought of my situation. He did a cursory 1 minute exam then told me I just have muscle pain, need to work out more. Of course, in the month before seeing him for the first time, I saw another provider in his office, whom took many x rays of my C Spine, Lumbar Spine, Hips, Knees & Ankles which revealed osteoarthritis, bone spurs, bursitis, tendonitis, cervical lordosis and chondromalacia patellae, many of which were confirmed with a MRI. He immediately dismissed all of the x rays (that his office did on site) said my MRI looked great, my spine is perfect, and I should thank my parents for giving me such good genes. He constantly cut me off, talked over me and dismissed all of my concerns. But he did take the time to complain about his own back pain? Like I care about his medical issues? Run far, run fast, this guy doesn't have a damn clue!

He was terrific, patient, kind, understanding. He showed me and my husband the results of my MRI. Accentuated the fact that my neck condition would not be improved by surgery, which I would have willingly consented to.

The nurses and staff were very friendly but, If you have an appointment with this doctor please cancel it. To make a long story short he comes into the office and already has an answer for my pain even before I give him my whole story from the accident. Doesn’t listen to me and understand my symptoms of the pain I received after my car accident. All he told me was nothings broken just go to the gym, exercise and work through the pain. Great advice Doc!!

I have had 2 surgeries by Dr Y and recommended him to my PCP, who also thought he was great. He is thorough, explains everything, and is patient. As an added bonus, he has fabulous office staff.

When I went to see this Doctor, I could barely walk! He told me I had runners knee and sent me to physical therapy which was a total waste of my time and money! I saw another Ortho and had emergency surgery on both knees for multiple meniscus tears! Really! Stay clear of this doctor!

I visited this man not doctor for neck pain and loss of strength in arms. This man refused to schedule a MRI, had to go to er to get one. This man said I just had a muscle strain?? Guess what he was wrong. Ended up needing a fusion on C4/C5 and C5/c6. How he still has a practice I don't know. Workers comp pays him..

I had a meniscus repair with Dr. Yannopoulos and it was faultless. Recovery time was minimal. I have recommended him several times to friends who also thought him to be a good doctor and surgeon.
