I just moved to this area and was referred to Dr. Yonan I waited 2 hours in the waiting room and 1 hour in a room. This Doctors refused to help me the minute I told him I did not have insurance. I am currently on pain medication and asked for his help he stated He didn't know how things were done in the south (I lived by Columbus Oh) but it wasn't the same here?????My Husband just passed and the Doctor had the nerve to ask I'd he took pain medication. I was discriminated against!

He doesn't spend much time to listen ,he is in and out. I've been a patient since 2012 and with chronic back pain . There's time he ask what is wrong and forgets what hes treating and says I won't get any better with pain,but wants to cut back on meds rather than try an alternative course of care. Not very sympathetic.

I was referred to Dr. Yonan for pain management after weeks of PT for sciatic pain did little to ease the pain. Finally, a doctor who used models and drew pictures to thoroughly explain the reason for my pain! Dr. Yonan administered two shots in my back and suggested a regimen of exercise to strengthen my core . Prior to seeing him, an hour in the car was agonizing, but following his recommendations, I was able to take a 1600 mile road trip pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Yonan.

Leslie Curtis in Oberlin, OH – Aug 20, 2018
I was appalled at the way that I was treated by this man, not doctor, man. The condition that I have is very rare. He said he had never heard of it. After telling my neurologist about this he said that all doctors have a certain book that they generally keep handy which they can use to look up any and all conditions. He never even bothered, he could have even just googled it. He would ask me questions then cut me off in the middle of answers. I would not recommend him even to treat a dog.

He spends time with you and likes if the spouse or a family member comes in. He looks into options that are best for you other than medication. From experience medication is not the answer for pain when there is other options. He helped get that option and it's going well. He's caring.

Robert in Westlake, OH – Mar 31, 2017
I have never had such a comprehensive background taken as I did here. Not only that, but Dr. Yonan actually referred to it as we discussed my pain, goals, and needs. He spent over an hour and a half with me devising a plan to best address the multiple symptoms of my fibro and bursitis. He was professional, caring, and in tune to the psychological effects of the pain I have been suffering. I feel I now have a plan I can stick to for the best results.

I began to see Dr YONAN by recommendation from my PCP. I was in so much pain that I had begun to lose hope. Dr YONAN listened carefully to my concerns and assured me that there was help available. And that together, we would find workable solutions. He found many and I will be forever grateful. I'm not cured... But I can function. I would recommend him and have .... Many times over. My husband now sees him also, Although he was sent somewhere else originally. Thank You Dr Yonan

Linda in Lorain, OH – Aug 29, 2016
I had a life changing event happen in my life that resulted in back, shoulder and hip replacement surgeries. I was referred to Dr. Yonan since I also have a degenerative disorder that is extremely painful. My quality of life has improved 100% since Dr. Yonan has treated me. Living a life without chronic pain 24 hours a day is a blessing compared to where I was three years ago. I have followed his orders.Losing weight a little bit every month and walking every day- and taking the RX has worked!

The man is an out and out quack. Any office where you have to wait multiple hours for your scheduled appointment has something wrong with it. Any doctor, who when you explain NEUROLOGICAL ISSUES, and he refers you to an ORTHOPEDIST is a doctor that is just stupid or doesn't listen or care about his patients. Avoid this quack at all costs.

John in Lorain, OH – Mar 16, 2016
Just last month I took one and he comes in the room and tells me there is a serious problem with my drug test with the door wide open and everyone in the lobby can hear. Im very surprised when he tells me I failed the alcohol screen. Mind you I'm 32 wks pregnant.I don't drink! He tells me my level was 735 and normal would be a 500. I have no idea what all this means.So when a friend helps me look it all up it says the normal is between 500-1000! I believe I'm owed an apology Doctor!
