We love Dr. Yeager - she always takes her time to answer questions and you never feel rushed. She's up-to-date on all the latest treatments for acne. She has even called me at the end of the day to talk abouttreatment and address concerns. I wish all doctors were as caring and knowledgeable as Dr. Yeager!

We had an excellent experience with Dr. Yeager. We filled our patient forms out ahead of time and got checked in fast. There was about a 1 minute wait time before going back to the exam room where we had towait about 2 more minutes and Dr. Yeager came in. Dr. Yeager is extremely personable, friendly and knowledgeable. She really takes her time to answer all your questions and is on top of new treatments. I would rate the visit a 10 out of 10.

Dr. Yeager is the best. Very friendly without being intrusive. She keeps a conversation going the entire time, remembers most of what you've told her at previous visits, and gives solid skincare advice without seeming pushy about it. I can'trecommend Dr. Yeager highly enough and have recommended her before. I showed up a bit early to my appointment today and rather than having me wait until 9 AM when I was scheduled for, they got me in within 3 minutes of my arrival. That was much appreciated too!
