Patient Comments (1)

in Queen Creek, AZ
VA Surgery - Femoral fracture Dr. Yaw personally called family in another state, as well as speaking with local family, to explain the surgery in terms we could understand, with honest concern for both the family and the patient. I appreciate him and highly recommend him.
