Patient Comments (3)
in Six Lakes, MI |
We waited at her office in Greenville for over two hours. She raised her voice twice during my fathers appointment when we asked questions. She knew nothing about his results or what was going on since being in the hospital. We asked why keep masking his pain with meds and she stated "sometimes that's what you have to do". She was rude the entire time. When she walked out of room she stated to the front desk "that should have been a new patient appointment", mind you she had seen my father prior

I didn't want to have to drive to Grand Rapids for my appointments, and Dr. Yost works in Greenville one day a week. During our first meeting she sat with me for a long time, going over all of my options and explaining the process to me. The staff at SH United Cancer Center has been amazing about scheduling my tests and appointments, and following up to make sure I have everything I need. I feel like DR. Yost is doing everything for me that she possibly can. I highly recommend her.

Wait time was one hour, spent 15 minutes maybe 20 at the most with me. I was concerned about swelling and she told me it was most likely normal, never did do a exam to see if it was normal.
