Last January I had fallen on the ice and had broken my knee cap. You performed surgery and stitched the bones back together. A year and a half later and I am currently taking taekwondo classes and my knee is doing excellent!
Dr Yanke and his staff are very kind, respectful, thoroughly explain test results and procedures and are super clear and informative.
Dr. Yanke is approachable, kind and gentle. Staff is courteous, reasonable wait time and overall, a positive experience!
Every bit about the process was excellent including the Dr, staff, facilities & of course the surgery & treatment plan. Best in class & would highly recommend.
