This doctor earns high marks. Have seen him over the years and have found that he and his office deserve these marks. In addition to his obvious knowledge of his medical specialty he indeed has a sincere interest in each patient. One quick story tells it all. My wife had a foot condition that might require surgery. This doctor recommended against this course of action. Not feasible. He had OUR interests, not his, in mind when making the suggestion. Obviously, honestly over all.

I have been going to Dr. Y for about a year now and I am grateful for his honesty ( to try other options before surgery) and giving me relief until I decide what to do. Nely, the office manager ( I think she works 24/7!) is very nice and helpful. I recommended my friend to Dr. Y and now she loves him too. Her primary Dr. says Dr. Y is an excellent dr. All I can say is that for my problem, Dr. Y is going above and beyond to help me . Thank you ??

Came in with a laser voucher I got a free consultation and he explained to me the different options for my problem in my foot. He is patient, friendly and professional in his job. I got a second appointment for the laser and I have more alternatives in my treatment.

Came into Dr. Yanovskiy clinic because I got injured during a rough game of basketball and twisted my ankle. The Doctor took an x-ray right away to find out if it was just sprained or fractured. Turns out that I had fractured my ankle and got casted right away. I was able to walk out of the office in crutches, doctor provided me with pain killers and note for my job.

Found doctor online, came in for a same day appointment. Dr. Yanovskiy was able to answer all my questions regarding my bunion on my right foot. After discussing my x-rays and treatment plan to help relief my pain and swelling on my foot I decided to have surgery done and was able to schedule the surgery the following week. The front office staff took care of everything with my insurance and was very helpful throughout the process. I had same day surgery and was able to walk the next day in my b

Dr. Yanovskiy took care about myself and my husband. He is really knolegible and supportive doctor. Compare with multiple other doctors from my experience, he spent with patient time to explaine everything related to the patient's disease and give multiple options for the treatment. I am recomending this doctor to everyone who wants to receive the excellent care for your problem.
