Patient Comments (1)
in Irvine, CA |
With the worst bedside manner I have ever experienced, I have come to explain why you should NOT go see Dr. Yaru if you want to be treated with respect. Walking into the office with extreme pain, I sat on his table in tears while he briefly spoke and did aggressive tests for my injury, only causing more tears and pain. With 6 years of knowledge on my recurring injury, he handed me a pamphlet and rushed me out. He's rude, disrespectful and doesn't treat you like a human, just another appt.
