The level of care I received from the first visit through my surgery and following have been excellent. Dr. Yerger and his staff have been caring and considerate about my well being. Every question has been answered for me promptly and carefully so I could understand. The follow up has been almost daily for a month after the procedure reassured me a great deal. The preparation checklists did the same to prepare me for my surgery. Excellent doctor and staff!!!
