Fantastic Personal Care.

Dr. Yost is a highly competent physician, who takes the time to explain diagnosis and prognosis thoroughly. In the past, I've had physicians who just gloss over technical medical information or dismiss my in depth questions. Ask Dr. Yost a question, and he gets excited to answer. You can tell this is his passion, not just his practice. Not only that, but the convenience of being able to go in from 9am to 9pm 7 days a week without an appointment is fantastic when you have sick kids. Highly recommended. The wait time is sometimes a little heavy; but I'd be more concerned if I was at an urgent care facility that wasn't busy. For not having to make an appointment, 45 minutes isn't all that bad.

No one else like him!

One visit with Dr. Yost and you will walk away feeling that you finally found a doctor who lives by the oath he's taken. Dr. Yost listens, intently, and addressed any/all concerns. No question is stupid. He goes above and beyond just sharing information, but wants you to leave feeling educated about what the diagnosis is and the treatment he recommends. The conversation is always two-way. He is very open minded to listen to what you believe and will not hesitate to research on his own. Dr. Yost has found issues that no other doctors have. We see Dr. Yost more than our own family doctor or my children's pediatrician. There is a reason for that. Not just the convenient hours and that our insurance (BCBS) see's urgent care as a doctor visit, not an emergency (hence a standard office co-pay), but because I know my family is taken care of fully from the moment I step in the door. The running joke in my family is that we should have a designated parking spot for how much we are there! We see Dr. Yost in the urgent care setting during times of after hours illness (after doctor office hours), but also for routine visits. When my family needs to see a doctor, we ALWAYS visit Dr. Yost first!
