Dr. Kathleen J Yost has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.ttcqeayetrwczwezdueawsrsbdyr

Very knowledgeable; however can be cold and impersonal. At times appears annoyed with questions, but will answer them. I believe her efficiencies and skillset contribute to her "icy" personality. If something is bothering her (ex. new office computer system), it tends to carry over into her attitude with patients. She is highly skilled, so some of her coolness can be overlooked. She does tend to push her own agenda versus really listening to the patient; can recommend aggressive treatment when it may not be needed. There is little or no follow up after treatment by her office. You have to call her if you have concerns or need something. That is a bit disturbing. Also, you have little choice in appointment dates/times. Her office calls and tells you when you are scheduled.
