Dr. Yazbak has all the qualities one could ask for when considering a surgeon. He is caring and very approachable, and extremely capable. I felt that I was in the best possible hands, when it came to surgery involving my face, which was a concern for me. He exudes confidence as well as compassion, which is a wonderful blend of talents. After experiencing his level of care, he is my gold standard when it comes to excellence in medical practice. I am grateful to him for his excellent work, but especially his compassion for his patients. Thank you, Dr. Yazbak! Sincerely Yours, Donna Rippin

Dr Yazbak has been very caring and very attentive to my personal needs. He was very thorough in explaining my condition and what the various options were and how we could proceed. He really left everything up to me after he fully informed me of my choices. I had previously used Dr. Yazbak's Services back in 2001 when he basically saved my life and today I have another condition that he is working on with me and I'm extremely pleased to this point. I would highly recommend Dr. Yazbak!

Great doctor! Horribly incompetent staff. If you just had to work with Dr. Yazbak, I would rate 5+ stars. Since so much of your time is dealing with his staff, I am giving them -5. I can't begin to explain how bad the staff is.

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.
