Creswell, OR |
My wife was in Dr Yasenchak's care, suffering from multiple myeloma. Despite a crystal-clear directive to the contrary, he took advantage of her delirium to strong-arm her into accepting chemotherapy. He did not have the ethics or the decency to call her husband or family. When she came to her senses and informed him that she wanted to die, he petulantly tried to badger her into letting him "treat" her for up to seven more years.

I met with Dr Yasenchak in July 2015 to obtain a second opinion on my Chemo treatment. I was very impressed not only with his knowledge and opinion but his bedside manner as well. I discussed His treatment suggestions with my doctor and made changes to my Chemo Med concentration and changed treatment from 3 to 4 weeks.
