I have gone to dr. Yank am a for over 22 years now. She was my Dr. while I was pregnant 29 yrs ago. I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else for female care. I would recommend her 100%.

I've had Dr. Yankama for several years and feel very comfortable talking to her about any situation. She is very knowledgeable and would highly recommend her to anyone. My daughter has her as a doctor as well and she has delivered both of her children and highly respects her. I will sadly miss her whenever she decides to retire.

In my opinion, Dr. Yankama is not only knowledgeable in the area of traditional medicine but also offers pertinent information from a holistic and natural standpoint.

After seeking advice from many specialists for my stomach issues, Dr. Yankama found my problem by doing blood work for food intolerances which no one else had even suggested. The results have been life-alternating -- what a blessing! Within a month of following the test results, I can sleep through the night without pain; something rare for the last twenty plus years. Many other benefits continue to flow from Dr. Yankama's wisdom and insight, and I am very, very grateful! Please see her soon!

I have been to several OB/GYN physicians but Dr. Yankama is by far the best! She takes the time to really listen to my concerns, addresses each one and helps to develop a plan of care with me. She never makes me feel rushed and I feel important to her. I would recommend her to my family and friends for sure!!!

I have been with Dr Yankama for a few years now and couldn't have asked for a better doctor. She's so great at listening to you. I love the holistic approaches she takes. During my pregnancy I had a few complications and I felt so comfortable and safe with the decisions she made to keep my baby and I safe.

I have been with Dr. Yankama since I was a young lady. She is seriously the best doctor ever! She delivered my daughter and just recently my son. Her expertise is phenomenal; the time she spends getting to understand and manage your medical status displays her quality of work and how much she cares; and her knowledge is breathtaking. I would definitely recommend her!

I'm so pleased to have been referred to Dr. Yankama a few years ago by by family and friends. Her quality professionalism, research knowledge on traditional & holistic approaches, plus having longevity in the field have been life changing for me. I became quite ill recently, and she was extremely thorough in her clinical approaches, and was able to diagnosis the issue effectively and efficiently. She helped me strategically develop a plan of recovery and I'm so grateful for her medical direction

Dr. Yankama is an exceptional medical professional. I have been going to her for over 15 years and so has all the women in our family. She has so many great qualities. Her approach is for your care as a whole and not just for female issues. She has a vast knowledge regarding many nutritional needs and shares new information with me each time I see her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new provider!

I could not ask for a better doctor. When I came to Dr. Yankama I previously had a horrible experience, she was extremely patient and understanding. She took the time to make me feel comfortable and allowed me to finally get the treatment I desperately needed. I was provided with options for treatment. I could not be happier with the outcome of my selected treatment. I am finally able to live a normal life. She truly went above and beyond to ensure I received the care I needed.
