I felt that I received the very best of care for my medical problem at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, and I would be comfortable recommending my physicians to anyone.

10/7/2016

Dr. Patrick Yeatts was very professional, always talking with me, not at me. His experience in the eye-care field is so impressive. He is up to date on the latest procedures. I am so grateful that I was sent to his office for treatment of a problem that I had been living with for three years. He understood my personal concerns and treated me with the utmost respect.

10/3/2016

Great Experience

9/27/2016

*Dr. Robert Yeatts is a remarkable doctor who is an expert in his field and knowledgeable beyond words. Truly, one of a kind! Please value the expert you have at Baptist Hospital.

9/27/2016

Dr. Yeatts has always told me what was going on and the best way the handle my problem. I have complete confidence that he has the experience (unlike other dr's that I have been to) and knows the is best way to help me with my current problem.

9/27/2016

very pleasant experience

9/21/2016

8/3/2016

Wonderful person, he is my HERO!

8/3/2016

Good.

7/24/2016

Dr. Yeatts is amazing. I had had a very bad experience with a physician in Salem, VA and refused to see him again. I contacted my local eye doctor and asked for another recommendation. He strongly suggested Dr. Yeatts. I am SO glad he did!

7/19/2016

Dr Yeats is great doctor

7/13/2016

Since Dr. Yeatts was running late, he only spent about 15 minutes with us. I would have liked just a bit more time; we didn't even touch on the test results from the biopsy.

6/8/2016

My first visit couldn't have been better. I plan to have a minor surgery done by Dr. Yeatts in August, 2016.

5/25/2016

Loved *Dr. Yeatts. The best eye doctor that have solve my eyes problems.

5/8/2016

sometimes personality isn't everything. he's an excellent Doctor. I prefer this to an excellent medical salesperson.

4/25/2016

I feel like Dr. Yeats could have talked with me more about the procedure before and after the surgery. He indicated at one point that maybe I was doing this for cosmetic reasons. I did so I could see and the operation worked. I can see much better. Thanks for his knowledge and experience.

4/24/2016

Dr Yeatts takes care of my condition with utmost professionalism and knowledge. I am fortunate to have him treating me.

4/19/2016

*Dr. Yeatts is a very intelligent man!

4/14/2016

No doubt concerning his technical abilities. His bedside manner is lacking. He did not listen to me enough to understand me which then resulted in him making a degrogatory comment. I am willing to overlook that in order to have the procedure done by an expert.

4/13/2016

Makes you feel at ease. Great -

3/17/2016

Good.

3/16/2016

3/8/2016

GREAT experience was well please with everyone...

3/8/2016

ROBERT YEATTS, MD is the ultimate medical provider. There were no side effects from the surgery, no bruising, and immediate feedback in the outpatient area. The follow up visit at his office was easy. He is very confidence inspiring.

3/2/2016

At ease feeling; showed real concern about my health and well being.

2/17/2016

All good!

2/16/2016

I was very satisfied and happy with the care I received from *Dr. Yeatts, the PA nurses and staff.

2/12/2016

Good. Recommendations are being followed and are helping.

1/28/2016

Provider was in a hurry because running behind from earlier appointments. Appeared anxious to get in and get out. My after surgery check didn't require much time, had similar surgery last year and understand the post treatment care. More the manner in that continuing meds and care required were explained seemed rushed. Emphasize doesn't affect trust in provider. Think caught him on a bad day and if I was concerned I would have slowed him down at the time.

1/26/2016

*Dr. Yeatts is extremely skilled.

1/26/2016

I have confidence in *Dr. Yeatts.

1/19/2016

everyone and everything was great,

1/4/2016

I AM SURE HE DID HIS JOB- HE DID A LOT OF TEST, BUT DID NOT TELL ME WHAT HE WAS DOING-HE JUST STATED HE WOULD SEND IT TO MY DOCTOR-JUST WAS NOT FRIENDLY OR INFORMATIVE-IT TOOK ABOUT 30 MINUTES, SO MAYBE HE WAS TIRED, HOPE SO ANYWAY-

12/21/2015

Excellent Surgeon. He could improve his empathy and bedside manner. Overall a Very Good Doctor.
