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. I would recommend his practice without reservation. in fact, Dr Yeatts is one of the best physicians I've seen. I obtain most of my medical care through WFBMC

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.

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.
