No good or bad experience except long waiting time.

10/28/2014

Good.

10/15/2014

No One Ever spoke to my husband after my surgery about follow up care. Dr slow to me while I was under sedation before getting to recovery, while Sats were still low, but no one spoke with my husband or even got him for me until I asked fire him. The Dr. Owed my husband a courteous update after my surgery before leaving the hospital and starting his weekend. By not communicating properly about what to expect it caused me too go to the EDthat weekend. I could have avoided the hospital visit, anxiety, and deductible change fire the ED. Communicate, communicate, communicate.

10/10/2014

Dr Yeatts responded to a follow-up email. I believe email is an excellent way for doctors and patients to communicate on questions that do not require in-clinic contact.

9/18/2014

Very helpful & understanding.

9/15/2014

He used medical terminology I did not understand.

9/15/2014

Good.

8/21/2014

Very good.

8/17/2014

I really was impressed with Dr. Yeats. He fixed a problem I had been dealing with for four years. The doctor I was seeing here never could fix the problem. The minute I walked out of the hospital, I knew my problem was solved.

8/7/2014

Dr. Yeatts is a wonderful doctor and very pleased that he was the physician in charge of my care.

7/21/2014

Great

7/18/2014

Had no problems.

7/10/2014

*Dr. Yeatts always seems to be very busy. This is not necessarily a negative comment.

6/12/2014

Everyone very caring and helpful.

5/29/2014

Dr. Yeatts was training (teaching) several residents during my time with him and I feel that I also benefited from hearing him talk about my situation with them. I felt I was very much a part of discussion - not a "specimen" being talked about over my head.

4/26/2014

Dr. Yeatts is a very professional physician He is courteous but no effusively friendly. However, I went there looking for a good doctor, not a new friend so that's OK.

4/22/2014

As good an experience as could hope for since surgery is involved.

4/1/2014

Dr Yeats got right on the problem & requested an oncologist to get an appt very soon within 48 hours.

3/28/2014

This provider did excellent work.

3/3/2014

I feel that medically he is knowledgeable and does a good job. But he is very lacking in bedside manner, and does not explain condition unless pressed.
