Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jason Yahwak for nearly 10 years now. So it pains me to be ready to leave Dr. Yahwak and Chest Medicine Associates. But the truth is even after having to speak with the Director Nancy at Chest Medicine Associates nothing has been addressed! The terrible front office staff to the patient portal never working. My phone messages are never relayed to Dr. Yahwak. My lung disease is even worse now after two years of everything being watered down and barely addressed. Neither my family nor myself have any faith left in Chest Medicine Associates or Dr. Yahwak.

I had seen 2 other doctors about my condition. Neither doctor seemed to care that I was getting sicker and sicker. Finally I saw Dr. Yahwak. He took time to listen to me. He didn’t rush me. He even gave me his email for direct contact! He scheduled surgery for the next week . I had been dealing with the other doctors for months with no help. I highly recommend Dr. Yahwak!!
