Dr. Yates is top- notch, as far as I’m concerned! I have multiple long- term health problems with complications and have always had difficult medical care issues. Dr. Yates was immediately familiar with my condition and any and all scenarios. Not only that but she went out of her way to research something on her own and called me at home to tell me about it- we shared this info with the rest of my health care team and followed her recommendations! I would highly recommend her to one and all!
