Dr. Yates' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Yates "Completing my residency program in Missouri, I excitedly returned to Utah and joined the amazing physicians at the Tanner Clinic which I had been associated with nearly my whole life. My father has been at Tanner Clinic as a Family Physician for his entire career and I am proud to follow his footsteps. For the first several years we didn’t specialize in anything in particular offering a range of services including cosmetic surgery of the face, breast, and body as well as reconstructive surgery for deformity or cancer and complex hand surgery. As the practice filled, I found that we didn’t have enough time to offer all of these services and over the past 6 years we have taken on a facial plastic surgeon and hand surgeon while limiting the scope of our practice to cosmetic surgery of the breast and body."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yates "I have always felt that the best source of new patient referrals is word of mouth.  For this reason I do not advertise heavily as is customary with many plastic surgeons.  A happy plastic surgery patient will tell two people they are pleased; an unhappy patient will tell ten they are displeased.  To this end, I am a perfectionist and have many happy patients.  I hope you will find your visit to our office a comfortable, positive experience."
