Dr. Yeatts is very easy to talk to and answers and explains any questions and concerns I may have. Love the results of my surgery. I did not realize how much vision I had lost until that vision was restored.

Dr Yeatts is top notch. his listening skills are fine tuned. His demeanor is professional, yet he listens to your concerns and weighs them heavily while directing your care.

5/20/2015

Wake Forest Eye Center is great, i wish i would have found this office years ago

5/15/2015

After my evaluation by Dr. Yeatts, I was told that several tests would be needed to get pre-approved by insurance for my surgery. Dr. Yeatts and I talked about scheduling of surgery and length of time of recovery. When informed of my wish to be in the pool this summer to continue teaching grandchildren to swim, Dr. Yeatts suggested we wait until the fall, because he would not want me in the sun to soon after surgery. He was very understanding and helpful.

5/2/2015

Very pleased with the knowledge, expertise and professionalism of Dr. Yeatts. Very thorough explanation of the condition and options for treatment.

Dr Yeatts is super. I have been his patient over a 5+ year period.
