My father was a patient of Dr. Yates'. He developed an unusual and complex condition, which I understand would be difficult for any doctor to diagnose. However, when his condition continued to worsen, resulting in multiple hospital stays and trips to the ER, Dr. Yates took a wait and see approach with very little urgency instead of referring my father to UAB. When we finally demanded a referral, UAB specialists diagnosed him in 24 hours and began treatment. Dangerous and disappointing care.
