Patient Comments (6)

This is a great neurosurgeon. Cape neurosurgical associates gives you the best care. They have two of the most caring surgeons. I saw Dr. Yingling after I had surgery in the hospital. His partner was out of town that weekend, so D.r Yingling kept check on me while he was gone. He was very nice...more

Don't see him for Chiari Malformation. When you're symptoms are worse after surgery, he'll fire you as a patient, passing you off to a neurologist, claiming it's "just a headache". Turns out it was a failed surgery only discovered after getting a second opinion.

All my concerns and questions were answered. Surgery was a success and recovery great. Dr. Yingling has a very sincere manner and easy to talk to.

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.
