What People Say About Dr. Melania Yeats, MD

Dr. Yeats, where do I begin. If you or a family member is in need of quality and compassionate care please seek another Doctor. Dr. Yeats is very condescending and even threw a tantrum when we asked for a second opinion. Quality of care just isn't there or at least wasn't practiced during our time of need.

Performed surgery to remove cancerous tumor and sentinel lymph nodes. Not only skilled, but listened attentively to my concerns Has a great sense of humor, which in my opinion, is a necessity in dealing with cancer patients for the health and humor of the patient. Truly supportive of patients and their concerns.

Dr. Yeats is someone I would definitely recommend to see. Her personality staff and her attentiveness to patients needs is far beyond that of most. If you're looking for a great surgeon with a great attitude and caring personality, I would highly recommend Dr. Yeats.
