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 -

Good.

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.

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.

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-

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. 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
