I have had 5 surgeries done by Dr. Yates since 1998. I think it speaks volumes that unless I was in a life or death situation, I would only let Dr. Yates operate on me!

Dr Yates is always kind and professional. He reviews my recent history holistically and answers any questions I have beyond my injury and offers advice when asked. Aging sucks and I fight it. Dr Yates rolls with it and reminds me to wear a helmet. I'm grateful for his care!

Dr Yates has my full confidence with his detailed experience and concern and deliberation in determining the best option for my situation at that time. He consulted the X-rays and talked thru process and best option to deal with the problem. I only trust Dr Yates to deal with my joint issues and particularly the only Orthopedic Doctor I would completely trust to have the best surgery outcome. he only does what is necessary after careful deliberation and study of my problem. he is very mindful of the mobility outcome after surgery. I had a total of 3 joint surgeries by Dr Yates. I only trust Dr Yates to take care of any joint bone and soft tissue repairs that I need. Tammy Matherly
