What People Say About Dr. Philip Yearian, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

January 4, 2018, Dr. Yearian did surgery on my foot: a bunion and two spurious toes. My foot swells every day except when I have a cortisone shot, about 4 months of the year. To be fair, Dr. Yearian says it's my arthritis. Yes, he said, "It was there before I did the surgery." The only problem is: he didn't say it would leave me crippled after the surgery. During my last visit in December, he tried to show me my before and after pictures and insisted, "See it's so much better!" I would choose another doctor.

We have been extremely impressed with the services we have received. My husband had bunion surgery. I was given a tip during a visit that helped me with a leg injury that led to my ability to rehab and walk. I then made appt. For myself...he made my feet feel new again! His knowledge and abilty to resolve the issues are admirable. We Would highly recommend Dr. Yearian. His nurse is fantasy and goes above and beyond. Two thumbs up!

Dr. Yearian is a phenomenal surgeon. You always hear about the bad stuff and never about the good things. He performed major reconstructive surgery on my ankle, he was extremely caring, knowledgeable and educated on the intricate procedure that he performed on me. I’ve since referred several friends and family members and they’ve all had amazing experiences with him.

Dr. Yearian treated my teenage son for hammer toe and has also treated him when he was younger for a broken ankle. He is very attentive, listens and really cares. My family wont go to anyone else for feet and ankle issues and would recommend him to anyone. His staff is awesome as well. My son has had 2 surgeries with Dr. Yearian and he has always made everything smooth and comfortable for the family. He is down to earth and cares a lot about his patients. We love him and his staff.

Unethical hack. Another surgion looked at his work and refered to him as butcher. Knows nothing about pain managment post-surgery; does not care. Avoide if you wish to walk again.

Went in after 3 separate foot injuries. He walked in with his diagnosis of RSD after only looking at images PRIOR to the latest, most severe injury. He overtakes us when we tried to ask questions. He injected 5 syringes of marcaine without numbing the injection areas which was the most severe pain I've ever experienced. I'm still black & blue and original issue exists a week later. After much research about RSD I've found no one who would treat it this way.

I saw him to fix one of my 4 hammer toes. Only the one giving me trouble. He decided to fix 3 and leaving the 4th one to look hideous when I wear sandals. But that isn't the worst part. He severed a muscle to release the hammer toes and then placed a cast on incorrectly so when I placed weight on the foot it ripped the stitches out of my leg and I couldn't stop the bleeding having to go to urgent care to stop the bleeding. He also said I could go back to work the next day which wasn't true.

After my toe became infected after having my nail cut out down to the bed of the nail, I asked to have a novocaine injection before he began and instead, he just started cutting. He said he'd worked on his own foot before and it wasn't a big deal. The pain was horrible. Then, I was told I had not paid my bill though I had and a rude receptionist insisted I must pay again (since I could not find my receipt) and I later found out an employee had been pilfering cash payments. I won't return.

Dr. Yearian botched 2 ankle fusion surgeries of mine after the first surgery was not healing like it was supposed to he ran a CT scan and told me it was worse than we thought so wee need to do a complete ankle fusion. So we did the second ankle fusion Dr Yearian didn't get the ankle joint and leg bone close enough to fuse the this Dr. said I was not healing because I was a diabetic and I have never been diagnoised as diabetic he lied to cover his butt I will never trust another Dr ever again

Dr. Yearian was a very personable and knowledgeable doctor. I broke my ankle and he performed surgery on it. He told me what I could expect over the coming weeks and everything he said was true. I've had no problems with healing up great. My scar doesn't look bad at all. i hope I never have to see Dr. Yearian again in a patient/doctor setting, but if I ever break anything he fixes again, I would choose him to be my surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone needing a good surgeon.
