Dr. Wayne F Yakes has the following 1 specialty
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

This $130,000 procedure did not work what so ever. Job loss - reduced benefits and they are requiring payment with no willingness to write this off or offer charity. What's more, AML Luekemia symtoms developed within 24 hours of second treatment last summer. Near death experience within one month, but LDS Medical Center saved her life through chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. After six months of constant care, she is stable and back home with her four children and husband trying to dig out of a mountain of bills including Dr Yakes's practice and Sweedish Medical in Denver.
Draw Yajes and Yee performed 21 interventional radiological procedures from 1999-2001 to treat my gigantic (the actual medical term) vascular malformation that was actively invading my lung and spine. Dr. Yakes is the international subject-matter expert in VMs and AVMs; his method has changed and saved many folks' lives, and the center is busy with patients from all over the globe. The level of care is superb. These lesions had been mis-diagnosed for years; surgical removal often compounds the problems, especially in the brain, face, and other difficult areas. His team works closely with your own doctors to effectuate a firm diagnosis. This increasingly-not rare problem requires real skill and specialized experience; Dr. Yakes developed the method himself decades ago and has successfully taught it to doctors all over the globe. So glad he's still helping folks!
Terrible expereince here. Scheduling and working with insurance SUCKS. I waited hours to be brought back for surgery (after not eatting for almost 24 hours) when I was told it would be an hour. The cost of this treatments was never discussed and received a bille over 1 year later that amounted to double what I was told when I was admitted. NOT ONCE, has anyone from this office checked on my recovery status nor did the Dr. remove the malformation that was said to be one of the smallest he's seen. EXTREME disappointment in my experience with the Swedish Medical Center & Dr. Yakes.
