Dr. Yirenkyi was very personable and friendly. Easy to have a conversation with and made the whole experience comfortable while being open to any questions I had. Overall knowledge was great, and I learned a valuable information on my experience-- especially after my diagnosis. It's important to find a Doctor who knows what they are doing and capable of being respectful, understanding, and helpful; all of which Dr. Yirenkyi was capable of.

I have been dealing with chronic back pain for over 20 years. Talked and saw over 20 doctors and none of them could help me. I thank God for Dr. Yirenkyi the best doctor I have ever met. He really explains what was going on with my back and how he could help me resolve some of the pain issues. He did a excellent job with my back, i am still healing, but I can tell the difference already and feel a lot better. I will tell everyone that need help to see you!!!! Thank you so much!!!

Dr. Yirenkyi is wonderful. He attended to my 78 year old mother in the ER at Piedmont Henry. Dr. Yirenkyi took the time to really listen to my mother and to me. He literally sat down next to my mother and spoke with her. She was admitted to the hospital and each time he came to visit her, he would take the time to listen and also met with the other doctors that were caring for my mother to insure she received answers to her long misdiagnosed pain. I Highly Recommend Dr. Yirenkyi!

I am new to the area and was in an auto accident. I suffered a severe injury to my cervical spine. Thank God I was referred to Dr. Yirenkyi. He is a very kind, caring and understanding physician. He is an excellent Neuro Surgeon. I had complete faith in him the moment we met. He gets all Gold stars from me. He put me back together and I will be forever grateful for him.

I can't say enough about Dr. Yirenkyi! I came in suffering from debilitating neck/arm/hand pain affecting my left arm. I'm relatively young & healthy, so when the he diagnosed me w/arthritis in my neck that was pinching a nerve as the culprit, I didn't believe him. He prescribed meds, referred me to physical therapy & predicted by the end of 6 weeks, when I returned for my follow up appt, I'd be returning pain-free. He knows his stuff. I'm pain-free & smiling again thanks to Dr. Yirenkyi!
