Dr. Yager has been my doctor for over 30 years. I have always been treated like family. He is compassionate and passionate about his patients, and the practice of medicine. He is a great listener and very understanding. I attribute my excellent health to his advice and care over the past 30 years. His staff is friendly and always helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Yager!!

Dr Yager is the best doctor we've had in our 60 plus years. His knowledge and care is extraordinary. He calls you at home to see how you are doing. Who does that anymore?? W trust him unconditionally. He's been our Family Doctor for almost 20 years. I don't know what we'll do when he retires.

This doctor charges more then any Doctor I have ever gone to.After over a week of calling them they would still not send the proper authorization to the insurance company to cover the perscription they wrote. Mrs Yaeger outright lied and kept blaming my carrier until I did a three way and found out it is them and not my insurance company. When I complained she told me to come and get my money back. When I went to pick it up she changed her mind and threatened to call the police.

I would highly suggest choosing another primary care physician. The facility has sanitary issues, unprofessional staff, and poor service and bedside manner. In addition, I have had to call Dr. Yager and staff multiple times to get the results of my blood work and I still have yet to receive them and it has been over 2 months.
