Dr. Yankelove Has Been Taking Care of My Eyes

Dr. Yankelove has been taking care of my eyes for so many years I've lost count, and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. He is always patient, kind, and thorough, and takes the time to explain everything. His staff is amazing, especially Jose. Dr. Y and Jose make a great team, and it is evident that the staff enjoys working for and with Dr. Y. If you are looking for a new eye doctor, I highly recommend giving Dr. Yankelove a try. He is worth the drive, no matter where you live in the Houston area. Best Berkeley doctor and staff around! Becky White

I Have Seen Dr. Yankelove For 14 Years

I have seen Dr. Yankelove for 14 years and enjoyed each visit. Some years ago I too brought my husband along as a new patient. I am 74 and now I am looking forward to having cataracts surgery including special lenses (maybe one Symfony and one Restor) next month and to seeing oncemore without the use of glasses. While visiting his office I have enjoyed each time the beautiful photos Dr. Yankelove, a true artist, has taken during his travels all over the world. Dr. Yankelove, Marcy and Laura are caring individuals and outstanding professionals. I travel 88 miles to see them!

I Have Seen Dr. Yankelove Since I Was In The Second Grade

I have seen Dr. Yankelove since I was in the second grade when I started wearing glasses and eventually moved to contacts. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I finally got LASIK and I'm so happy I did. He and Brenda explained everything to me and put my mind at ease. Everyone told me that LASIK would change my life and they were right. I highly recommend Dr. Yankelove and his staff.
