I have seen several retina specialists and for the very first time I have found a really good one, he spends more than enough time with you, doing a very comprehensive eye exam and then he makes sure that you understand your condition and treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Yunker not only for his high technical quality but for his dedication to his patients.

Dr Yunker is a kind, caring physician with a fellowship in vitreo-retinal diseases and surgery. This means in addition to 4 years in medical school, one year as an internal medicine resident and 3 years as an ophthalmology fellow, he also spent 2 years in a fellowship program to learn to treat diseases of the back of the eye. That's 10 years of training after college! Equal to his knowledge and skills is his compassion and excellent bedside manner. I gladly refer my family and friends to him.

Husband was referred to Dr Yunker by associate ophthalmologist for a consult for pars plans vitrectomy. Appt was booked over a month out. Day of appt waited in office for over 45 minutes past scheduled appt time before leaving without seeing Dr who had not yet arrived at office and had not checked in with his staff. Very inconsiderate, as if patient’s time is not as important or as valuable as doctor’s considering office policy requires 24 hr cancellation notice.
