Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Yellin was very professional, knowledgable, and took his time to listen and then explain what he thought was going on. I also really liked the fact that he gave me a holistic option first and said if there was no improvement after that, THEN we would move on to heavier medications. My only complaint is that I arrived a few minuets late for a 2:45 appt, and wasn't seen until 4:10 to which I was told was because the office doesn't receive notifications when an appointment is booked through ZocDoc. So if you book through Zocdoc, call and confirm!!

Very helpful, professional and nice.
Dr. Yellin was very attentive and friendly. Very informative on my questions asked and made the visit comfortable with light-hearted small talk. Would highly recommend. One minor annoyance is that their office doesn't have a credit/debit card device to accept my FSA card for co-payment.
Dr. Yellin is very knowledgeable and his bedside manner is very professional. I felt much better after seeing him and happy that he has recommended an MRI. He really took his time with me and I look forward to returning to his office.
Great doctor very attentive to his patients great experience
Great specialist! He put me at ease with his vast knowledge of my problem and recommended solutions. Very nice bedside manners.
The wait was a bit long, but it wasn't a usual day for appointments, so I understand. Knowledgeable and willing to work with your goals. Already setup a follow up appointment to make sure the treatment plan is working for me.
He is very professional. Listen to my concerns and took good care of me.
An amazing doctor with such a great bedside manner. He really evaluated me thoroughly and put me at ease!! The best.
I went in for a consultation and Dr. Yellin did what seemed to be a thorough exam. I was happy to see that he did not immediately refer me for what could be unnecessary testing, but rather agreed with my physician that I should first receive PT. Also worth mentioning, I went in with my very inquisitive three year old granddaughter, and Dr. Yellin was very accommodating as well as understanding during what could have been quite an uncomfortable visit for me. The young lady that greeted us was also very lovely and responsive to my granddaughter's needs. The office is clean and inviting!!
I have been seeing Dr Yellin for years and he is always fantastic - thorough, interested, will spend as much time as needed.
He is very approachable,easy to talk to, friendly, and takes his time to examine you. I don't feel he has to rush me out of his office because he has only 10 minute to see me. On the contrary, he treats you with respect and he listens to what you have to say.
Kind and professional

I think Dr. Yellin is terrific! He is balanced in his view towards a treatment plan. Very professional while still putting you at ease.
it was excellent great personality.
I was referred to Dr. Yellin because I was experiencing terrible headaches/migraines daily and then I started to feel numbness in my fingers and limpness in my arms. (Turns out everything was due to extreme stress) but Dr. Yellin was really not helpful or seemed knowledgeable as to what was wrong with me. The appointments I had with him were pointless. He also made a lot of jokes about my condition, laughing saying oh you're just stressed you need to relax. These comments were extremely unappreciated and in poor taste.
Dr. Yellin was professional, caring and fully explained my situation to me. You cannot ask for more on the basis of 1 visit,I recommend him highly .
Was very professional caring took his time with exam. Would definatly recommend to visit he is a great neurologist
Dr. Yellin did a very good thorough examination. He also gave me a course of therapy that he thought would help me the quickest. I am very appreciative of his help because I walked away feeling I will get better very soon.
I came in bc I had inconclusive MRI results that needed to be evaluated but he put me right at ease! Dr. Yellin is wonderful.
