He is eligible for certification from the American Board of Family Medicine and is affiliated with facilities including the Emory University Hospital and Saint Josephs Hospital of Atlanta. Dr. Yager is also a member of professional organizations including the American Medical Association, the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians, and the Southern Medical Association...
Originally from Fort McClellen, Alabama, Dr. Yager attended George Washington University in order to pursue his medical education. He continued his medical education at the Los Angeles Medical Center of Harbor-University of California. Here, he relieved his residency training.
Patients visiting Dr. Yager can receive a full range of medical services. He provides cardiovascular screening visits, annual pediatric checkups, annual physical examinations, and prescriptions and refills. Treatment is also available for issues including asthma, migraine, arthritis, food intolerance, and general illness.
Dr. Yager's vast medical knowledge and expertise is outstanding. I have been seeing him since I turned 21 and could no longer see my pediatrician, but my family has been seeing him since around 1980. Every time I go in (which is monthly), he asks about my family and how they are doing. His memory is also sharp-as-a-tack! The first time I came in as his patient, he remembered me coming in when I was 6 years old (15 years prior) with strep-throat! Honestly, I wish all doctors were like him. I feel like the medical field would be in a much better state if they were.

Dr. Yager is always spot-on with diagnosing my health concerns and identifying my care needs. He's also very understanding and practical when discussing suggestions. Dr. Yager is flexible with his appointments and with my hectic work schedule, he finds times that work for me and always gets me in and out in a timely manner. Most importantly, he always remembers who I am even if I haven't seen him in a year. I've only been his patient for going on two years and I don't have to go often so this was impressive and made me feel valued.

Dr. Yager has been my PCP for several years, providing superior patient care and customer service while under his care. Even though I have now moved out of state, Dr. Yager continues to provide excellent patient services in an administrative capacity-- Dr. Yager has personally fulfilled numerous requests for medical records and documentation to satisfy current medical screenings that have requested my medical history (with my authorization, of course).

Dr. Yager is a very attentive doctor. He takes time during appointments to check on the wellness in all areas of your life. The office environment is always pleasant. In all the years that I've been a patient of Dr. Yager, I've never had a bad experience. I couldn't ask for a better doctor!

Dr. Yager has been my primary care physician for about 10 years. This is a no frills facility that may not appeal to everyone but Dr. Yager listens to me, has provided good medical advice, care, and referrals. He is easy to get in touch with and he has personally called me to see how I am doing. I'm very happy with his services.

I don't normally write reviews but when I do, they're about Dr. Yager's awesomeness. All kidding aside, Dr. Yager really is an amazing doctor. He cares about his patients, attends to them on time and never makes them feel rushed during their appointment. I wish I would have found him earlier. God bless this man, he's great. Felipe

I have been a patient of Dr. Yager since 1975, and I believe that Dr. Yager has been most patient with me over the years. Dr. Yager has cared for me through being a single person in Atlanta, the birth of my child, our struggles through illness, vacinations, joys and tears. I have trusted Dr. Yager with my medical needs, concerns, hospitalizations, and much more. He is more than a clinical doctor. Dr. Yager is the patient's doctor, compassionate, friendly, and always has the best interest of his patients in his heart.

In 2005, this incompetent doctor performed a prostate checkup and missed an egg-sized sarcoma tumor in my large intestine. A subsequent doctor stated "only a blind person could miss that". His staff charged me for the ovarian cancer test (I am male, BTW). A horrible, horrible practice, maintained by large quantity of fabricated 5-star ratings. If it was for Dr.Yager, I would be gone by now. A step away from medical malpractice. He has no morals.
