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.
