Dr. Yakkanti took such personal care in repairing my broken humorous bone in my arm. My arm had been previously operated on twice by a doctor in another practice, who after the surgeries had his assistant took over my care. And since those surgeries were not successful in repairing my arm, I went to Dr. Yakkanti and receive the help I needed.

This is what I expect when going to see a Dr. Dr Yakkanti is extremely knowledgeable, and caring. Major auto accident, shattered hip socket, multiple pelvic fractures, 17 broken vertebrae. Dr. Yakkanti did 2 major surgeries and follow up. Excellent!!! NOT a stuckup jerk like some doctors, He is highly recommended by me.
in Bardstown, KY |
I was very satisfied with the care I received from Dr. Yakkanti. I also referred my daughter to him when she broke her leg.
in Shepherdsville, KY |
First I would like too say that Dr Yakkanti is more than amazing. I like his bedside manners he’s always smiling and very soft spoken, he has never entered the room without shaking mine. and my husbands hand. I’m in the best of hands thank you Dr Yakkanti for your compassion in my recovery. Patient Dianna Brock

I highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti for any knee surgerys. He has the best compassion for his patients than most Doctors in this field. He takes his time going over your injuries with you. Let's you know exactly what needs to be accomplished. No short cuts on your health.
in Louisville, KY |
I have been going to Louisville Orthopedic for almost 3 years and Dr. Yakkanti has been my doctor. He always explains everything to me and really cares about the well beings of his patients. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with bone or joint issues.
in Louisville, KY |
Dr. Yakkanti was thorough, clear in his explanations and spent a good deal of time with me. By the time my visit was complete, I was confident that I could trust him as a surgeon. He listened to me and addressed my concerns immediately. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti
in Louisville, KY |
Dr Yakkanti is very knowledgeable, personable and caring. I would highly recommend him. Waiting time was a little over an hour however, I expected this due to the fact that he is the best in his field. His office staff was also very good at thier job and very friendly and patient even with difficult people. Again, highly recommend Dr Yakkanti.
in Louisville, KY |
I came to Dr. Yakkanti with a badly damaged left hip. I called his office and explained my situation. The very next morning Dr. Yakkanti called me personally and scheduled me an appointment for that day.He is a wonderful doctor but an even better human being.
in Louisville, KY |
My experience this far has been great. Dr. was highly revered! Very caring and thorough.
New Albany, IN |
I had knee revision surgery and had a very good experience. Surgery was thoroughly explained, along with possible issues. Office staff was friendly and answered all questions. Follow up care has been excellent.
in Bardstown, KY |
I met Dr. Yakkanti as a result of my older sister breaking her hip and needing surgery. He was good at explaining the surgery and the risks thereof. In addition, when I had some detailed questions because of her DNR order, he ensured those were answered yet still noted the need for timely surgery to minimize her pain. The only time I was confused was when he explained what would happen with her post-discharge from the hospital.
Louisville, KY |
Poor communications, wait time over 2 hrs, does not want to write a pain script though hospital asked for it as he did not want it in his name.
