Office did not have the respect to return my two phone calls over a WEEKs time. Caused extra money to leave my pocket as i now have to get a hotel and travel out of town for treatment. My doctor out of town (I was hoping for a joint team deal) tried calling and no one responded. Guess my health isnt her priority.

Unfortunately she's the only Endocrinologist in B/N that accepts Medicaid, so I had to go to her. I think a couple of months is adequate time to see if a physician is good. I gave it 2 yrs. Shes'' a lousy physician, plain and simple. I saw her due to Hypothyroidism & it's clear & obvious that she tries to see as many patients as she can in the day but she just "pushes them thru. She doesn't listen and she LIED about my treatment. I now drive to CHICAGO 2 a competent doctor! Staff is RUDE.

I have been seeing Dr.Yambay and I find hercare to be thorough and excellent. I have seen many different endocrinologists because of moving a lot and she is absolutely the best. She even sends you home with a handwritten list of things you need to do

She acts like a dictator rather than a partner in care. She is condescending and not interested in listening.

I've had nothing but problems with this whole office from day 1..from having to phonetically spell out my entire name 3 times to get my first appointment set up, to being contacted via mail saying they need to reschedule my appointment that's only a week away. Her nurse has documented multiples things wrong in my chart (blood pressure & my weight) and Dr. Yambay doesn't even order the same labs every time, when she's supposed to be doing a recheck. She also tried to force unnecessary tests on me

My endocrinologist from Peoria retired so I decided to go to Yambay. Instead of offering me options on my medical treatment going forward, she chose to dictate what course of treatment I was to follow. She didn't take my input (nor did she even ask for any input) into consideration, grabbing my insulin pump to begin making settings changes to enforce what she thought I should be doing. I'm "one and done" (appointment-wise) with this individual. I'd recommend not seeing this person.

She was the most heartless, unprofessional doctor I have ever been to, especially for cancer. I would not take my guinea pig back to her. Office staff not much better. Do not subject yourself to her.

Dr. Yambay is very friendly and thorough however, her nurse is not friendly at all and shows no concern for the patients.
