A caring doctor, 11/23/2013

He has cared for me since college, he has saved my life more then once.. I call him and he helps me. what more can you ask of a Doctor. thank you Dr. Yager


Knowledgable, Caring, Flexible & Timely Doctor!, 11/03/2013

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.

...and how is your family doing?

When a doctor knows the names of everyone in your family and asks how everyone is doing, you know that the person is a "Family" doctor. Over 17 years, Dr. Yager has watched my kids grow, has filled out countless summer camp forms, and has been available for all our life changes. I've changed jobs and insurance over the years, but NEVER would think about changing doctors. Great staff too! tom

Full Service and Excellent Doctor!

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).

Wonderful Doctor

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!

Very, Very Good Care

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.

A kid on Ride the Ducks is a more competent doctor

Title says it all folks. This guy is a quack!!! By far the worst experience I have had at a "doctor's" office. There's a reason he accepts walk-ins!

See Dr Yager and Get better quicly!

I usually don't write reviews. Dr. Yager has been my long term provider and has been Excellent! Don't waste your time looking around, Dr Yager is compasionate, caring, will usually answer his own phone calls, and will listen to your conerns. I've been to MANY Dr's seeking help for my condition, but Dr. Yager has increased the quality of my life beyond my expectations. You never have to wait long to see him, his quick to follow up with your treatment plan. All in all his is simply the best Dr. I'v every seen, including specialist. He will ask the right questions and make the appropriate diagnosis and make your life better with the proper treatment plan. Thanks Dr. Yager for being my hero...

Dr. Yager is awesome!

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

The Patient's best doctor

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.

This medcial practice is a complete fraud

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.

Real family doctor

I like the personal attention you get at Dr. Yager's. As opposed to most doctors, he sees you at the actual time of your appointment. And when i say he sees you, it's the actual doctor, not armies of nurses and MA's.

Great Doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Yager for awhile now with a brief absence while living in LA and DC. Nothing has changed he still offers top notch care with a great chairside manner. He was even great enough to postpone my payment until my HSA card arrived due to a mixup with my HR department. I can't say enough nice things about him. Trust me you won't be disappointed! Thank you Dr. Yager!
