      Dr Yingling listened with compassion and answers to my condition. He has very good bedside manners and a very good neuro surgeon. I would recommend him to my family and friends. His Assistant "Carla" is really great as well. She is a very nice and down to earth lady.

      My experience with Dr. Yingling was very good. He always explained what was going on and exactly what he would do to fix my problem. Always took his time to listen about what exactly was going on. He always came in the room with a smile on his face and is just a super great doctor.

      seen Dr. Yingling for back pain. He ordered MRI. Then said the disc where slightly bulging in several places, ordered physical therapy. After a month of therapy no pain decrease. Then sent me to another Dr for painful steroid injections. That did not help. So he ordered another MRI. Nothing has changed. So he told me there was nothing else he could do for me. Referred me to a pain clinic. they just prescribe pain meds. Do not waste your time or $ on this quack. Wish someone would of warned me
