in Wenham, MA |
I met with Dr. Yumus today and would highly recommend him as an extremely professional, highly intelligent physician. He spent quality time with me addressing all my health issues and patiently answered any questions that arose. He had familiarized himself with my health records before introductions and continued during the exam to research all information within the system. I was hesitant due to the previous review but upon my experience, I shall look forward with confidence to any followups

I have gone to see Dr. Yunus multiple times as part of my cancer treatment and would not recommend him. He is always running late and made me feel rushed. For example, I had a 3:40 pm appointment and he got to me at 4:48 and was out the door before 5. He did not listen to my questions, the gave confusing answers, belittled my family when they asked clarifying questions and generally had a rude demeanor. Regardless of his qualifications, there are much better oncologists - don't go to him.
