VERY POOR staff & RUDE doctor

Dr. Yankelove's office is absolutely unprofessional. Not only do they not give you what they promise in each visit, which goes against their "Berkeley Eye Center" policies, but the doctor is just plain rude & unprofessional! We'd been going here for years, until the doctor got so unprofessional with our good eye health and deferral on accepting his constant persuasions & pushing for laser eye surgery. HAD ENOUGH of this DISGUSTING office!

Great doctor

I have been going to Doctor Yankelove for years. He has preformed cataract surgery on one of my eyes and the other was done when I was very young for lazy eye somewhere else but he still every time I go in checks on it also. He did do lasik on one for an issue. I am getting up in age and he watches for all the old age issues also. LOL Going back next week to see him again. I know as we age and with computer screens, they affect your eyes as other parts of your body. I guess I finally going to go back to glasses again. lol Thanks Dr, Yankelove and his staff..

I Recently Had Cataract Surgery on Both Eyes

I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes and I am extremely happy with the results. I was hesitant prior to scheduling the surgeries, but Dr. Yankelove and his team were very supportive, professional and caring. I have been with Dr. Yankelove since 1981 and his knowledge and professionalism is the best! My experience at the Katy Berkeley Center was very favorable. The entire staff was very caring and supportive throughout both surgeries. I never felt anything during the surgeries. It was extremely effortless. I was amazed at the results. Thank you to the team at Berkeley Eye Center (Katy) and Dr. Yankelove!! Patricia Perino

I Was Very Pleased with Everything About My Visit

I was very pleased with everything about my visit. The receptionist was prompt to greet me and give me the forms I needed to fill out. A young man, Alex came to take me back for my first procedure and continue to explain what he was doing and answered all my questions. Dr. Yankelove was kind and answered all my questions. He acted like I was his only patient. I was excited to find excellence in each step of my visit. Alice Crowell

Absolutely Perfect Restoration of Vision In My Left Eye

Absolutely perfect restoration of vision in my left eye. Previously, had surgery for Closed Angle Glaucoma and Cataracts. At one visit to a different eye doctor, the cornea of my eye was cut and I experience great uncontrolled pain. My fear of this procedure was at maximum. Very much scar tissue from these surgeries. My vision had deteriorated to major loss. Only images with vague features. Unable to read at all with that eye and unable to enjoy TV without getting headaches. Dr. Yankelove performed his magic and corrected my close up vision to 20/20 without glasses....He is a very kind and caring man. I was not eager to have the procedure, now I wish I had done it sooner. From the first visit with his assistant Jose' I had a very positive experience. All of the staff were more than attentive. Wish ALL doctors could take lessons from Dr. Yankelove in care and concern for patients. His expertise as a surgeon is outstanding. I am grateful to Dr. Yankelove for not only restoring my eyesight but also my faith and trust in this field. God has blessed me with a fine surgeon. Karon Taylor

One Star

I went to Dr Yankelove many years ago to have permanent eyeliner applied--I was afraid to have this procedure done by anyone but an eye surgeon-I liked Dr. Yankalove very much, and felt very confident in his abilities--I loved the result of this procedure, and was told that I would be able to have the procedure redone whenever necessary at no charge to me--I was told that the liner effect could fade due to flaking off and/or, the iron color pigment migrating to other parts of my body--When I went back for a redo within the year because the color had faded, I was informed that the Dr was no longer doing the procedure, and no one in the office, including the Dr, a lady working in the office, who I believe was the Dr's wife, or the office manager, would give me an explanation as to why I couldn't get the liner redone and why they were no longer doing this procedure--I was not offered any sort of refund of the several hundred dollars I'd paid for the procedure--I didn't pursue a refund or further pursue an explanation--I should have--I still respected Dr Yankalove and his abilities, but I was very disappointed in the way he and his office handled this situation

I Am a Long-time Patient of Dr. Yankelove

I am a long-time patient of Dr. Yankelove's and he has always provided great counsel and treatment. His entire staff is incredible. He recently performed Lasik surgery on my 27 year-old son and the results were outstanding and immediate. We wouldn't trust our vision to anyone else. Trey Smith

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!
