I had seen Dr Josef Yeager for a black stripe on my nail. I was afraid it was melanoma. Dr Yeager checked me and put my mind at ease and referred me for a nail biopsy. A few days later he met Dr.Venna, a melanoma specialist at a conference and spoke about my case and asked him if he could see me. He went above and beyond knowing my concern and because of him I was able to see Dr.Venna right away. A doctor who is kind and truly cares about his patients. I know which practice I'll be going to for my dermatology needs from now on. Thankyou Dr.Yeager!
I have been a patient of Dr. Josef K. Yeager of Shady Grove Dermatology, LLC, formerly Berk Keahey & Yeager, for 15+ years! I was there today at their new location, 15245 Shady Grove Rd., Suite 370, Rockville. There office has an open uncrowded feel to it with a well-lit welcoming ambiance. There is plenty of comfortable seating in this office with its lovely decor and wonderful art displayed throughout. Their front desk team are professional, friendly and put one at ease immediately. Solita and Jennifer are whom I interacted with during this visit and they were very personable! The crown jewel of this practice is Dr. Yeager! Dr. Yeager is the kindest, sweetest, most gracious doctor I've ever encountered in my lifetime of interacting with doctors and other medical professionals! He has the most exquisite manners and communications style! But most importantly Dr. Yeager has stellar credentials, comprehensive expertise and experience in all things dermatological!
