My husband and mother in law both had rotator cuff repairs and the surgeries went great!! He had to revise my husbands surgery due to a mess up by another surgeon! They both had excellent recoveries and have full range of motion and no pain!!! Dr. Yacisen spends time explaining and answering any questions you have, love his bedside manner!! Now my daughter has torn her ACL and I new immediately who to call, I have total trust and admiration for Dr. Yacisen, I know my child is in great hands

I had a followup appointment for a condition that I had been sent to OT to attempt conservative treatment as opposed to surgery. I was in the waiting room for approximately a 1/2 hour. I then spent an hour in the exam room waiting to be seen. I couldn't wait any longer because I had another appointment, plus an hour and a half at a doctor's office and still not being seen is completely unacceptable anyway. I will not go back or recommend.

He is the best sergeant my son and I have both had him he is the best he tell you what he is going to do and if you don't understand he will explain it to you so you do understand I would go back to him and have my son go back to him he has great bed side matter

Well this was the worst experience at a doctors office we ever. Had a appointment at 8:15 am the first one in office even before all personal showed up ,called back 8:21am put in room 8:47 am still no Doctor. Ask when Doc.would be in, be a couple mins,now mad left this office never to return. Why make appointment at 8:15 and wait almost a hour as we was the first in and waiting room had 7 others after us Good luck to them,the best part is it was only to talk about a up coming surgery.

He's the best and I can finally walk again! ??
The day of the surgery, he hardly said three sentences to me, and when i was in recovery he was supposed to talk to my husband. He never bothered to and all he did with me was ask me a few questions and rush off. Came across as full of himself but was not very good

Had a knee replacement found out 1 year out after much pain and him rolling me it was just scared tissue ,,, from another surgeon that the replacement was put in wrong, at the wrong angle and the wrong type. Needless to say after a revision from another surgeon everything is perfect and I am seeking an attorney for lost work , pain and suffering and emotional distress. Highly recommend you find another one that is not so arrogant and self absorbed
