Patient Comments (5)
Gaithersburg, MD |
I had seen Dr Josef Yeager for a black stripe on my nail. I was afraid it was melanoma. Dr Yeager checked me and put my mind at ease and referred me for a nail biopsy. A few days later he met Dr.Venna, a melanoma specialist at a conference and spoke about my case and asked him if he could see me. He went above and beyond knowing my concern and because of him I was able to see Dr.Venna right away. A doctor who is kind and truly cares about his patients. I know which practice

Dr.Yeagers office is clean, very modern. The staff are very welcoming and are not rude. Dr.Yeager is very gentle and gets to know you as a person as well as a patient. The wait time is not long at all. He also gives samples too. I absolutely love him, whenever I have an issue the product he perscribes me works wonders!

My children and I have seen Dr. Yeager for many years. He has always been extremely patient with questions, very informative and never rushed us out of the exam room. We all like him very much and will continue to see him when needed.

Excellent care, pays attention to your needs, not rushed. Been our family dermatologist ever since I met him when he was in his residency. Followed him when he went into private practice & we've been with him ever since.
