I have been with Dr. Yanni for 10 years years now. He has taken me from a condition called RSD where I was unable to walk and wheelchair bound for 3 months to implanting a Nero stimulator to help my condition and giving me my quality of life back. I can never thank Dr. Yanni enough, when other doctors gave up on me and misdiagnosing me it was him who saved me!

Dr. Yanni and his physician assistant, Amanda Morris, are by far, the most incredible medical professionals I have ever had the fortune and privilege to know. After suffering severe injuries in a car accident last year, I was devastated thinking that I would never be able to work in my profession again, which to me, meant not being able to provide for my family, and this feeling was worse than any physical pain I’d ever known. Dr. Yanni and Amanda gave me hope during the darkest time in my life,

I was recommended to see Dr Yanni for pain in my knees and ankle. I made the appointment easily and after a minimal wait in the waiting room was seen by Dr. Sakr. His compassion , knowledge and kindness towards me was overwhelming. His plan of care and that of the PA Payal Patel have helped me gain some of my life back. They listen when you talk and even interrupt a discussion with other professionals in another room to ask you how you are if they see you walking by the room.Highly recommend!!

Dr. Yanni and his staff are very professional and caring. Dr. Yanni will spend as much time with a patient as needed explaining everything in terms we can all understand.He knows what he is talking about but never hesitates to refer you to another doctor for more in formation. His staff is very professional and also helps you in every way possible.

I saw Payal Patel today. All the basic info given on my first visit was filled in by the receptionist prior to handing me a tablet asking info only I could answer. I was taken to a room within minutes and saw Payal within 5 minutes of my appointment time. It took me longer to get to my appointment (35 min) than I spent at this appointment (25 min). This is the way health professionals should treat their patients.

Dr. Yanni has been taking care of me for a year now. The first time I visited I could not even walk. Within 2 days he began injections and performed a very minor back procedure a month later. He gave me back my ability to walk and be pain free. Now Dr. Yanni and Amanda are taking care of an issue with my knee. Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful. When I'm there I feel like I'm amongst family.

I have been a patient of Dr. Yanni for a few years now, and he is not only a very capable doctor, but he is kind and empathetic. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has pain and needs relief. He will get to the bottom of the problem, by diagnosing it and create a plan of action.

What a piece of garbage! I've had 5, or 6 epidural, but they eventually stopped working. I've been going to Dr Yanni's office for almost 4 years. I'm badly in need of surgery, so I called to make an appointment. He REFUSED to see me, so I could get a referral to a spine doctor. The MD had ALL my doctors notes, and I was totally 100% transparent. Anyway, when I went to make the appointment, the staff said I broke some opiate policy in Jan of 2017 (YET I WAS GIVEN AN EPIDURAL IN 6/17!) Abandoned!
