I *sincerely* wish I had checked her reviews before setting an appointment. She completely misdiagnosed me, said I needed several hundred dollars worth of medical supplies (which I stupidly got from her office - don't be like me, order what you need online and you'll save a bundle), and after weeks of unsuccessful treatment, I was left worse than how I started. At that point she basically left the rest of my treatment up to me saying I could try a couple different things if I wanted to, but that it might be something I have to live with. I promptly went to TOC and am so glad I did; they actually know what they're doing and the injury is almost completely healed! I have never in my LIFE been to such an incompetent doctor. If you place any value in quality, affordable medical care, this person is probably not for you.

I went to see Dr Yack yesterday' I have been having a lot of pain in my right heel, not only do I have a bone spur, but Dr Yack told me some very important information I needed to know and what I can do, and she spent time with me and explained just how important the shoes you wear are, I do not have insurance but I was treated with respect. The front desk window the girls were very nice, I still have the pain in my foot today, she doesn't deal with bone spurs but I also found out I possible have a stress fracture which is a tiny crack in the bone, and that might just be a lot of my pain, but seeing Dr. Yack was well worth the money I paid just to know the information was a BIG help. she gave me meds to help with swelling or inflammation. I would highly recommend Dr Yack.

I called the office to determine what the service would cost to get toe nails clipped and foot exam (I have diabetes). The office said it would be covered by my insurance except $35 co-pay. Just received a bill for additional $ 66.00 If I had know that I would not have gone. BTW the Office Visit alone is $ 74.0.0. Probably will not go back- I do not like to be missed informed.

I saw Dr. Yack as a new patient. The front office was very nice. My visit with Dr. Yack was informative and pleasant. I was embrassed of my feet and the guy who took me back made me feel comfortable also my wait time was minimal. I would definitely recommend her.

My wife walks on the sides of her feet...doctor hadn't looked at her feet and said, you are born with your feet. Seriously? I didn't need a doctor to tell me that. She then explained cost for orthodics, which she DID NOT offer to my wife, just explained the cost. Told my wife to stop being cheap and buy new shoes. Then she got up and left...Guess the appointment was over.

Find another doctor! She is in the profession for your money. She does the very least to help you but will definitely collect cash. Unfortunately, I went to her twice because she had a very open flexible schedule. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Catherine Yack was horribly unprofessional. She complained about her son and grandchild during my visit the first time, I returned again to give benefit of the doubt. Same nasty demeanor and dirty office. I would not recommend or return.

All she wanted is my money. Very unprofessional. Staff member smokes and smelled terrible. She even made a disparaging remark about my parents.

Very unfriendly. She spent less than 5 mins with me and complained the entire time about my insurance and how little they reimburse. She implied that she didn't want to do a medical procedure on my foot because of how little my insurance reimburses her. If she doesn't like my insurance she shouldn't take it. I will be finding another doctor to see in the Huntsville area. I would not recommend her to anyone I know.
