Patient Comments (4)
in Mount Pleasant, TX |
Appeared more interested in my participation in a breast cancer research for which I qualified as a specific type of case. I agreed, but his attention apparently did not ever shift over to me, the patient needing care. He was condescending and snickering toward me, even though I am an RN. My fiance was there, and his impression was the same as mine--even though he typically sides with the man in such situations. Not terrible, but I would not recommend this doctor to others.
Dr. Yimer was very timely. His kind and calm demeanor was reassuring. He addressed my health concerns in a direct yet positive manner. He was very knowledgeable and offered solutions to aid in my healthcare. I would definitely recommend him highly.
Flint, TX |
Dr. Yimer is my dad's oncologist. As a nurse I can be pretty picky about his doctors, but I have total confidence in Dr. Yimer's expertise and decisions. He and his staff are very friendly and caring. I am very happy with the care he is getting at Texas Oncology.
in Longview, TX |
This doctor is hard to talk to and seems distant, not committed to the patient. Easily offended and unappreciative of real concerns. I would find a more caring oncologist who is more in tune with patient concerns and who is less arrogant. Approach with caution. He is his main focus.
