He has been my neurology provider for going on two years. He also provides care for my obstructive sleep apnea as well as my fibromyalgia. Always kind, always courteous, and always wanting to make sure he does the right thing for me. His staff is absolutely the best I have ever worked with. Responsive, precise, and caring. Can't say enough about Nanny and Carol.

I truly believe God sent me Dr Yathiraj. He listens to what you have to say & always takes whatever time is needed with you. He sent me for many tests & I was diagnosed with CIDP. He also treats my other ailments.

Dr Yathiraj and his staff were spectacular for me. I was in such severe pain that I even had trouble riding in a car for more than 5 minutes. I had been to the emergency room for pain that I was having in my back so they x-rayed me but wouldn't do an MRI. I scheduled with Dr. Yathiraj and he did an MRI and scheduled me with a specialist. If it wasn't for his diligent work I would still be bed ridden. I would refer Dr. Yathiraj to anyone.

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.
