Dr. York could not have been nicer and more professional. I especially liked his conservative approach to a rotator cuff problem, i.e. start with a cortisone shot, see if it helps and if not move on to an MRI. His assistant Jackie was great as well, listened carefully, was encouraging to keep on leading my regular active life, being guided by pain. Would definitely return for further consultation and/or treatment, and as a newbie to Atlanta after 40+ years in California it is wonderful to find an orthopedist in whom I can have confidence right away. Thank you, thank you.

Dr. York did a previous procedure for Rotator Cuff surgery and the surgery was performed very well. Will do a knee replacement soon. Hoping it will be as good.

I love Dr. York and his staff. Everyone is very friendly and Dr. York takes his time with you and answers all your questions fully. My knee surgery went wonderfully. My physical therapist (outside practice) said that he was very impressed by my alignment, incision, healing and my movement. I would highly recommend him. Dr. York is very good about getting back to you right away if you have a question or concerns.

Dr. York is great! Dr. York and his assistant are great. They listen and care. But his front office staff and his billing department would make you not want to come to his office anymore. They are nice but they don't listen or put information in the computer right. Trying to correct it with them is a nightmare. Also I couldn't get a MRI from them due to billing not calling back after leaving 3 messages so I can give them the correct insurance information again for the 4th time. 2 times in person. Its sad. because Dr. York and his assistants are great and ccaring.I wish I could say that about his front office staff on Phoenix Blvd. He ia 5 stars. office staff 3

Dr. York is an excellent doctor. He let you tell him what you know about yourself then guide you into his professional opinion without making you feel you are beneath him. He was so caring that without fear I agreed to have fluid drawn off my knee. I will recommend him because he is very kind to his patients.
