It was just by chance that my mom had Dr. Yazbak as her neurosurgeon. The night she had her MRI - he happened to be on call. I'm so grateful that he was, because I'm positive we could never have chosen a finer surgeon for her. From the very first call, he put us at ease. Her surgery was a great success, even though her brain tumor ended up being a GBM. She has surpassed the average life expectancy of most GBM patients, and I'm certain it's because he did such a wonderful job of removing all her initial tumor. He has given me the greatest gift of all - more time with my mom and the ability for her to be present at the birth of my second child. Dr. Yazbak goes above and beyond for his patients AND their family members. He calls on weekends or after hours to answer questions and has a great bedside manner. He listens and respects the wishes of the patient and family and provides guidance where there is SO much uncertainty. I would have absolutely no reservations if my family or myself needed any kind of procedure from him because I know he is highly skilled. I cannot say enough good things about him. Thank you Dr. Yazbak :)
I was sent to Dr. Yazbak after my MRI revealed a brain tumor. He was the most friendliest doctor I had ever been to and I've seen quite a few lately. He was able to get me in for surgery within a couple days and everything went fantastic. He truly is a gifted surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. And his staff is wonderful and friendly too.
