Cleveland, TN |
Amazing dr!
Chattanooga, TN |
Has an arrogant attitude.
in Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. Munford Yates is the best doctor I have seen in my life. Further than just having extensive knowledge, he truly cares about every one of his patients. I had pretty complicated stomach problems, and all my previous doctors tried to just write me off as having IBS, even though I knew that wasn't it. Dr. Yates did not stop until he figured out what my diagnosis was. After a year of tests, medications, procedures and more, he was able to figure out my problem and walk with me through treatment.

I'm sorry but doctor that only sees patience from 1p to 430p isn't enough time when you have children school and they want to schedule it during the time children get outta school. Everytime I drive for the hour to him, it's just waste time after he put me 5 different medicines. I feel like it has been a waste of my time.

He and his staff we so caring. He's very good at diagnosing the problem, in my experience. He had an initial diagnosis, but ran tests to rule out every concern I had. Not only would I highly recommend Dr. Yates, I HAVE recommended him to my loved ones.
in Soddy Daisy, TN |
I love Dr Yates! His nurse in the office is always very helpful also. He is my all time favorite doctor of any specialty.
in Chattanooga, TN |
He is the kindest, most considerate, and genius specialist. He saw my husband over 10 years ago after another non-intelligent GI guy misdiagnosed him. Dr. Yates' tenacity found the correct diagnosis and my spouse is now doing so well under his watchful eyes. When you leave his office, you realize you have a brilliant physician, who is down to earth, and excellent office staff helping in your plight and you treatment. I'm now seeing him too.

I had an bad experience with this man I had gone to this dr for an office visit after the office visit he did an upper and lower gi producers this dr told me I will know about the results of both procedures later he told me I have to take a camera pill test I told him in a nice way I don't want to take the test he told me if I don't take the test I will not get a kidney transplant it's all because of being money hungry will not recommend arrogant man thank you God for blessing me with a kidney
