Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yates "As an ophthalmologist, I aim to deliver compassionate care and treat my patients they way I personally would love to be treated. Patients who come to me with complex issues need thorough review of their history and questions answered. I strive to educate my patients on how to prevent problems with health or blindness. When performing surgeries, such as cataract or blepharoplasty, delivering excellent visual outcomes is my paramount goal."
