Money hungry. Since I grew out of my pediatrician, I went to see this man to have my ears cleaned out (as I had done many times before for hearing issues). I confirmed with his office staff he could do this before I came for the visit. However, once I came, he performed some expensive tests that I never asked for and then sent me home telling me to clean my ears. I told him I was having trouble and that's why I came to him. He said make another appointment if I need help with it. Never went back

My daughter has seen Dr. YAv off and on for ten years. At age two he took out her tonsils and adenoids. Starting at age eight, he treated her recurrent ear infections with ear tubes, eventually sending her to an allergist for further testing. She is now done with tubes and has no more ear infections. Dr. YAv's staff is friendly, accommodating and easy to work with. The doc himself is a no-nonsense type, but on the day of surgery he's a sweet teddy bear. He sees an incredible amount of patients!

Husband had unexplained bleeding and was seen by Dr. Yav immediately. Office staff was friendly and v professional. Dr. Yav was able to insert a scope into his nose to examine a very sensitive gag reflex patient with ease and swiftness. I NEVER thought that could be done to him! (Neither did my hubby!) He was able to numb it first. If you have fear or are nervous, he is the doctor to see. He works efficiently with a kind touch. Luckily, results were normal. He's a great doc!! Highly recommend!

I BROUGHT MY 5 YEAR OLD SON TO THE OFFICE FOR HIS EARS AND FIRST OFF I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THE STAFF HERE WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY. THE DOCTOR COME INTO THE ROOM AND ADDRESSED MY SON IN A WARM FRIENDLY WAY AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING THAT WAS GONNA BE DONE SO HE FELT VERY COMFORTABLE AND HAS SINCE CLEARED ALL HIS EAR PROBLEMS.

I had an emergency due to a nosebleed which lasted for several days. I never had a nosebleed before this. I sought out an ENT doctor and found Dr. Stephen Yavelow. He patiently calmed my wife, and within one minute, diagnosed and solved the problem. At all times he acted in a calm and professional manner. As a new patient, I must give my sincere thanks to Dr. Yavelow for his care.

I should have listened to my own gut instinct and not make an appointment with them because from the get-go I called and asked if they took my insurance and also my grandmother's and they said they did not know and I had to call my own insurance company and see. The doctor takes a very minimal amount of time with you and is not very thorough, he is rough too. I have pictures of instruments sitting in the sink and I actually questioned one of the staff because she was washing instruments by hand.
