Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was a patient of Dr. Yankey when he practiced in Quincy, IL. in 2012 & 2013. In my opinion, I couldn't have had a better doctor. He literally saved my life with a triple by-pass. He really cares about his patients and will do whatever he can to make sure they heal properly. Very good bed side manner and a great, compassionate doctor!
