in Des Moines, IA |
I would normally be terrified to have surgery (especially on my hand considering I'm a hair stylist), but I wasn't nervous at all. He seemed so confident and excited to repair my cut tendon and he actually listened to my concerns about not being able to work for 6 weeks. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Yanish.
in Rippey IA |
Dr. Yanish was patient, answered questions and explained all options. I felt included in all discussion, and didn't feel uncomfortable or out of place. Finalizing the nerve test results, he remembered and followed up another issue, without notes. The day of surgery I had complications with the insertion of an IV. Dr. Yanish went over and beyond the role of surgeon to accommodate my situation. During the follow up he continued to inform me of on going healing and what to expect.
in Madrid, IA |
I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome after years of pain, numbness, tingling and lack of sensitivity. The office, first of all, is organized better than any medical office I've ever been in. The entire staff that I encountered was kind, patient, and thorough about explaining what to expect and what I needed to do. Dr. Yanish is the same way. He performed a bilateral carpal tunnel endoscopy on 12/19 and by 12/30, I'm almost back to normal. The scarring is minimal and I feel great!
in Indianola, IA |
I saw Dr. Yanish to have a right lateral epicondylectomy and repair of common extensor origin. Once surgery was indicated he kept me informed on why surgery was needed, the desired outcome and what was expected me to achieve that outcome. His explanations and expectations were clear and understandable. I would gladly, and highly, recommend Dr. Yanish to family and friends.
