    Worst doctor ever. He sent in students to exam my injuries, when he came into the office he told me nothing was wrong with me and the X-rays that showed results of somewrong was false. He didn't throughly examine my knee. He returned me to work full time and told me to attend PT.Within three days after seeing him I returned to my PCP for my follow up appointment before returning to work full time and my PCP informed me that the problem was still there. Worst doctor ever I would not recommend him

    When to Dr. Yucha after another Doctor told me nothing could be done for my rotator cuff tear. Was very impressed with Dr. Yucha and my range of motion has been restored. Nothing but good things to say about him.

    Dr. Yucha is an advocate for your well being. He is caring and wants to do the right treatment for you. He is thorough in gathering all of the information necessary so he can make the right decision. In my case it was arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus. His surgery gave me back my quality of life with my right knee. His post operative exercise program accelerated my recovery. I will continue to recommend him to my family and friends!

    I began seeing Dr. Yucha when I tore both meniscus and my ACL in my right knee. I also had a big trip coming up which I would have been unable to go on in my initial condition. But Dr. Yucha planned out doing a meniscus surgery separately from the ACL which allowed us to still go on an amazing vacation with tons of walking. Since then I've had my ACL surgery and it is healing nicely. Dr. Yucha is not only a very good surgeon but is friendly and personable.

    Visited Premier Orthopedics and Dr. Yucha for three wear and tear injuries in the past two years. The conditions were treated efficiently and I was able to get back to my normal activity level quickly. It is a very busy practice, which is well organized to handle patient load as efficiently as possible. Dr. Yucha and his medical support team were pleasant and focused during my visit. After handling two issues in one visit, I felt it was the quite a productive appointment!

    He is the worst Dr. I've ever been treated by. He had no interest in me or my injuries, and he had the nerve to go on and on about his injuries!??
