I am updating my review. I still full-heartedly recommend Dr. Yakes. He is fantastic and is a very kind doctor. So, my recommendation is still 5 stars, but I am changing my staff friendliness to 3 stars - Good. This is an average of the Front Desk and Billing still get 5 stars, but current PA's I've been working with getting only 2 stars. I am a patient who prefers to avoid pain killers. I, personally, find the new PA's more difficult to work with and less understanding.

After years of searching for help, we finally found Dr.Yakes! Our youngest son had an AVM in his right lower leg. Since about 15 months, he had been having episodes of severe pain usually followed by days to weeks of limping or dragging his leg behind him. We saw numerous specialists- none of whom could help us because of where the AVM was. At 6 yrs old he received 3 treatments a few weeks apart.He is 11 now & has had no further problems. Dr.Yakes was the miracle our family had been praying for!
