Another doctor that is overly paranoid due to Opioid Crisis Accountability Act. When describing a previous experience at a different pain management clinic, Yancey became UNGLUED and just outright refused to even discuss the subject. While there IS an opioid crisis in this country, it should not be assumed that EVERY patient is subject to immediate addiction therefore refusing to even consider an extremely effective solution to short-term, acute pain problems. Alternative pain solutions come with as many if not more side-effects than opioids and are certainly not as effective except for a small percentage of patients. The Opioid Crisis Accountability Act was put in place to target long-term opioid use for chronic pain problems, not short-term acute pain issues. Just another case of Big Brother penalizing everybody for the sins of a few and the whiplash response by doctors more concerned with protecting their license than considering a holistic approach to a patients needs.

I was in pain for over 6 months. Visiting various medical professionals in this area. Dr. Sheih refereed me to Dr. Yancey. He is intelligent great bedside manners and he KNOWS his job very well. I went to MHSC and he preformed his magical session. He came out confident and sure that he had cured me. He did... Well above what I expected. I have nothing but praise and thanks to Dr. Yancey and his team. I can also tell you that MHSC Pinecroft is second to none. Than You Dr. Yancey..... Terrariums over aquariums Doc...

Dr. Yancy is very considerate and helpful in determining the best way for me to handle my pain issues. He is trustworthy and thorough, yet down to earth and friendly. So far I have had two Epidural Steroid Injections which have helped immensely. His staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Yancy. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. Yancey performed RIGHT SACROILIAC JOINT RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION(including right L4 medial branch nerve) procedure on me on 5/16/2012. I felt immediate relief and am doing very well after two weeks. His associate, Dr. Ankur Khosla, administered the anesthesia and I didn't feel any pain other than having the port placed in my hand by the nurse in preparation for the procedure. Once I rolled over onto the procedure table, I didn't know anything until I awakened afterwards. 100% satisfaction

Two years ago I ruptured two discs in my lower back. Walking was so difficult I was housebound. Dr. Yancey's compassion and knowledge was extremely reassuring. After successful initial treatment, his Followup with personal phone calls made me a believer. Granted, not all treatment is successful, but in my case I can only give him the highest recommendations.
