Dr. Yeates is following my strabismus. He answered all my questions and helped me understand my treatment options. He is extremely helpful and patient! I usually don't have to wait very long for my appointment but when I do the staff always informs me they know I am there.

Dr. Yeates saw 2 of my kids for exams. He was very friendly and good at making it a good first experience at the eye doctor, will definitely recommend to a friend.
