Specialties

Dr. York J Yates has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Terrible experience with this doctor. Highly not recommended :(((((

I did my breast augmentation and lifting beginning of 2017. Everyone in the office was nice to me and made me believe that everything will be great and if there is a problem it will be fixed right away. As a result one breast shape is square and another one is round, with no lifting whatsoever. I just got huge ugly scars, nipples are completely different, my husband told me no to take off my bra even when I sleep. At my appointment with Dr. Yates I asked to fix my problems, so he told me that my breasts are great and he is very happy with the result. I started to cry, because I have a depression and my husband with not happy with the result. I remind Dr. Yates that he promised me to fix my breasts before the surgery if something will be wrong, he changed his face and became angry and told me that it is my anatomical problem and he cannot fix it. I asked him why I was not told beforehand that I have anatomical issues, so he replied that it was a miscommunication. Another doctor I visited after that appointment told me that I have no anatomical issues and breasts can be fixed. I just realized that Dr. Yates just cannot do breasts lifting at all.

Yates did exactly what I wanted!

Dr. York Yates is a rock star of body work! I needed to have old implants removed and a reconstruction. Every other Dr. told me it could only be done with two surgeries. Dr. Yates PROVED THEM ALL WRONG. He took the time to explain the risks and possibilities and advocated for what I wanted. He left me with the small breasts I wanted in one surgery with NO complications. I can't say enough about his skill and how appreciative I am not to undergo months of waiting and 2 surgeries! Thanks Yates. You are amazing!

I love my breast augmentation results!!

I had a breast augmentation 3 months ago that was performed by Dr. Yates. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He was so great with helping me choose the best implant for the look I was trying to achieve. I felt like he listened and answered my questions really well. It's hard to imagine what the end result is going to look like in reality, but I put my trust in him that he would deliver a great result. I'm so glad I did! I'm so happy with my results! I had a lot of questions after my consultation that he answered very promptly when I emailed him. And after the surgery he promptly answered a question that I had through text. I was so impressed by that!! The surgery went so well and my recovery was amazingly easy. I didn't use any of the narcotics that were prescribed. I was able to control the pain by simply using Tylenol and Ibuprofen. I love my results and would recommend Dr. Yates to anyone. My experience was fantastic and I love the end result!

Exceptional Care

I would definitely recommend Dr. Yates! I had visited two other Plastic Surgeons and I was impressed with his bedside manner as well his options for me. I felt very comfortable and trusting in his decisions, and I was more than happy with my results. His staff were friendly and I left feeling like family.
