Dr. Yngve is brilliantJan 12,2016
Good when the help me with things I need help with.Dec 03,2015
Very flippant responses to our concerns. Seemed to write us off once he realized that surgery did not work as planned. Poor people skills. Beat around the bush and did not give straight forward answers.Nov 24,2015
I came away with no diagnosis and no follow up instructions to my child's problem. This is concerning considering the nature of the pain. I went to another facility for a second opinion.Nov 19,2015
