One Star

Dr. Yost is probably brainy. I can't tell because I cannot get past her indifferent exterior. She seems uncaring.

Breast Cancer

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.

Dr. Yost is probably very knowledgeable but it is impossible to get to know her. She has a personality like a computer.
