Dr. Yilma is extremely knowledgeable. Another cardiology health professional told me she has the best memory of anyone she has ever met. I have seen her for many years and trust all her advice implicitly. She is also exceptionally caring.

I love Dr Yilma but her staff is terrible. No one answers the phone. All you EVER get is voice mails that are never returned. The office ran so much better when Dottie was there. We miss her!

She found a 90% blocked carotioid artery and scheduled best surgeon in AZ to make the repair. She follows my Heath closley and leaves nothing to chance. Dr Yilma saved me from a certain stroke.
