Patient Comments (11)
in Homewood, IL |
Dr. Yalavarthi is wonderful, knowledgeable and compassionate physician.
in New Lenox, IL |
Without a doubt, Dr. Yalavarthi is the best doctor we've had the pleasure to know! His expert clinical skills far surpass any other doctors that we've had. His bedside manner is a model for other physicians to follow! He's a kind, talented doctor and a genuinely nice person. We'll miss him sorely when he retires!
in Manhattan, IL |
I thought that he was easy to talk to and took the time to thoroughly discuss my health concerns. He performed a thorough examination and I received my test results in timely manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Yalavarthi to anyone looking for a new doctor.
in Lemont, IL |
I've been a patient of Dr. Yalavarthi's for two years and today he completely belittled and embarrassed me during my visit. I needed FMLA paperwork filled out for depression, and he told me that people like me were the downfall of the productivity of this country. I don't have enough characters in this review to write fully how terrible this man is. He seems nice, but DON'T go to him, he's judging you in the back of his mind. Dr. Yalavarthi, it's not grace if you hold that grace over my head.
in Manhattan, IL |
Dr Yalavarthi is caring and compassionate. I have recommended several family members who now see him and are very happy with his care.
in New Lenox Illinois |
He is very patient, caring and knowledgeable. He listens and comes up with the right diagnosis.
in Calumet City, IL |
Dr. Yalarvarthi is a very caring and nice person. Because he provides thorough exams and spends time listening and explaining everything my husband and I have been patients of his for years. When he moved his practice we followed. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a Primary Care Physician.
in Homer Glen, IL |
He was the first doctor to diagnose my mom for the issues she's been complaining about for years where other doctor's either missed her issues or thought she had certain issues which she did not have. Dr. Yalavarthi was gentle, calm, did a full diagnoses, and treated my mom with utmost care. I highly recommend this doctor for anyone who is seeking proper medical attention and diagnoses.
in Frankfort, IL |
He is an excellent, caring listener. He earned my father's trust!
in Olympia Fields, IL |
I have been a patient of his for many years. He spends time explaining all aspects of your health, and calls back very timely with test results.
in Chicago Heights |
I've seen at least a dozen primary care providers throughout my life, and Dr. Yalavarthi is the best. He's a great diagnostician and gives clear explanations and instructions. He is also unfailingly courteous, patient and willing to listen.
