Dr. Howard Yager is a extremely understanding, kind, and professional doctor. The nurses are no different and very personable. He is very accommodating when it comes to scheduling appointments and the actual appointments are quite time efficient as well. If you’re looking for a doctor that genuinely cares for your well being that is reasonably priced, even with no insurance, Dr Howard Yager is the doctor you’ve been looking for.

I am a "young" senior male who has a few chronic health issues. Dr. Yager is the most professional, friendly and compassionate doctor I have found since moving to the Atlanta area. He listened intently to my issues and asked very pertinent questions. He was sympathetic to my complaints and prescribed a treatment that I am most happy with. I highly recommend Dr. Yager
Dr. Yager has helped me so much! He is very kind, trustworthy, knowledgeable, passionate, and wants the very best for you! His office staff is very caring and positive! What a wonderful Medical Team!

Thru a referral in 1985, upon my move from Michigan, finding a personal physician could have been a daunting task. But for over 32 years Howard Yager has been my MD... and that in itself says a lot about his bedside manners and concern. Friendly staff, never having to wait to be seen and making calls to me personally if something came to his decision or was viewed on my Patient portal. In a big city like Atlanta, it is rare to find a doctor like Howard Yager

Wish I could give him more than 5 stars.. Dr. Yager has been my first and only primary physician for two years now. He really gets to know you and cares about his patients. My schedule is very sporadic and hectic, but Dr. Yager, along with his flexible staff, accommodates me every time. They have never turned me down and are always very welcoming. Every visit has been positive, quick, and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Yager as your primary!

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.
