I have heard great reports of Dr. Yancey's surgical ability. But when I attempted to set up an appointment to meet with Dr. Yancey about an L & I injury I was told he and his office manager had declined to take my case. The receptionist declined to give a reason- just said she was told to contact me to tell me that they would not be taking the case. This was very puzzling since the case should have been very straight forward.

Dr. Yancy performed a Higland procedure any reattachment of the Achilles tendon to my left heel. Surgery went extremely smoothly, his staff is outstanding, and wouldn't hesitate to have him perform another surgery if required.

He operated on knee, was unable to fix my knee problem
