I am so pleased with choosing Dr Yerger to perform my hip replacement surgery. Dr Yerger and his staff have have been exceptional and very caring. I am contacted every day to see how I am doing though a health portal and if I ask questions they answer.

F/U for my mom 6 weeks post op. Her hip is healing well. We saw Dr. Yerger today and he spent so much time answering questions and explaining everything. He is very kind aan patient. Dr. Yerger told mom she could start walking today. She walked so well you could barely tell she had surgery!!
in Clinton, LA |
covered both joint areas of concern for treatment and/or replacement. Explained pros and cons. Put me at ease about existing condition that could pose threats to surgery and recovery. transferred confidence in completing the replacement and recovery allowing me to make the decision and time frame for surgery/treatment.

He is the best! His bedside manor is superb and he lets you know what to expect. You may sometimes have to wait in the exam room a few minutes but it's because he is explaining things to someone else. Then he comes in and gives you the same time. Absolutely the best!
in Youngsville, LA |
I had hip replacement surgery September, 2015. I would DEFINITELY recommend Dr. Yerger to my family and friends!!! Awesome surgeon and staff.
