I still have the stent he installed 20 years ago when the procedure was relatively new. It hasn't given me any problems and continues to work.

Dr. Yehyawi was able to help me get my blood pressure under control when other doctors had struggled to do so. Sometimes I have to wait a while to see him, but it seems like his office is trying to remedy this problem. My last two visits have been much quicker to get in. He is willing to talk and listen to my concerns.

took him over a week (probably 10 days) to read my echo cardiogram to find the my heart was working at only 18% at which time he panicked (which he would not have had to do if had read when results sent) as I was leaving the state via airplane
