Dr. Yazbak was the on call neurologist that saved my life. Granted, I may be a little biased, but he was a great man as far as attentive, knowledgeable and personable. Intelligent and experience are key factors you need in a neurosurgeon, and this is one guy I would fully trust. Doctors can only perform the miracles God puts in their hands . I would trust him with my life again. He saved my life fresh out of his neurosurgery internship 20 years ago.
