The most kindhearted doctor my husband has ever been to. We have been with this doctor for over six years and would follow him anywhere. He always makes sure the patient understands what is happening to their body. His staff goes out of their way to make sure the patient is comfortable and the follow up is outstanding. We recommend Dr. Y to anyone who needs a Neurologist.

I have never written a review for a doctor as I am usually not very impressed with the doctors I come across.I must say Dr. Yathiraj has been an exception to what I have previously experienced.He is very thorough in explaining things to the patient, but what I really appreciated is that he listens and does not rush you to move on to the next patient.He is very easy going and has a great demeanor.

Dr. Yathiraj has been my Neurologist for 3 years. My experience receiving medical care with Dr. Yathiraj has been reassuring and productive regarding his patience with my often times reluctance to start and/or continuation of medication/s. While professional and up to date with medications and trials, exhibits empathetic personalized care. Important for the comfort of communicating the concerns I have had. Also a very relaxed neutral demeanor, very friendly. Appreciative of his experience.

Dr. Yathiraj is one of the many professional and caring physicians I have met at Pinnacle Medical Group. He really takes time to find out about his patients. I am confident in trusting his diagnostics as they come not only from his vast medical knowledge, but from the individual details he draws from each person he sees. I am so grateful Dr. Yathiraj, an empathetic professional (with a super sense of humor by the way) and his exemplary support staff are on my heath team!

HUGE appointment problems, they mis-schedule, cancel appointments, don't return calls. DR "on Call" & "unavailable" 2+ weeks each month. I've been trying to see him for 3 mths. to get my equipment. They didn't return calls so I walked in 1/9 to schedule with him, he was on call so I was given an appt. 1/30 then got a call a few days ago to cancel. I called 3 times and told I can't get in until March!! Their error, they don't care. Dr Yathiraz is a good but go elsewhere for the sake of your life.
I have left Pinnacle Medical Group now. Please check out Palma Sola Neurology Associates where our goal is providing expectional worldclass neurologic care with the personal touch!
