The office was very outdated and pretty junky. There also seemed to be no electric filing system and I had to wait for the doctor to manually organize my file since there was no front desk associate. I was alarmed athow disorganized the office was and did not feel like it was sterile. The room where I had to change into a gown was a make shift exam room/office and again was very junky and filled with paperwork. The doctor also left me alone for almost 20 minutes to give another patient a shot. I was there over an hour and was late to work because of how long it took to do everything. I will not be going back for a follow-up appt.

Dr. Yost is one of the best doctors I have ever met. She was very kind, patient, and extremely thorough and informative when it came to explaining the type of tests that needed to be done, what exact allergens were affectingme, and all of the different options available to remedy my allergies. I left my appointment with Dr. Yost, more informed and educated about my health than I had ever been after any doctor appointment I've had prior.

Dr. Yost is very kind and has great bedside manners. She takes the time to answer questions and is thorough when explaining things. She is sympathetic to your situation and doesn't treat you like a number or like she's rushing youout of the office. The wait time could be a little bit better but we're in the largest city in America! Of course you're going to have to wait to see a doctor! Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Yost.

My first apt was great but the next few visits I had to wait more than 45 min. I was always given an excuse that someone walked in with out an apt and I had to wait. I'm not sure whyI had to make an apt if walk ins are a priority.

Recommended a battery of tests for a simple allergic reaction. At no point did the doctor communicate that these tests would cost thousands of dollars. Very unprofessional to recommend such extensive and expensive testing for a minor ailment.No reasonable person would expect allergy treatment to cost thousands of dollars. Avoid!

So I had some severe allegies all over my face and arms when I woke up in the morning and this doctor appeared to have the earliest availability. She had me wait for over 30 minutes because, according to her, shehad a small injection to do for another patient. She did a few tests on me and asked for a whole bunch of questions but still seemed to have zero clue on how to treat me. She wrote four prescriptions, all of which had my name spelled wrong, three of which had no signature, and one of which didn't specify the quantity. I caught the first two errors right away so she corrected them. The last error was caught by the pharmacist because apparently I couldn't read her handwriting. The pharmacist at Walgreen called the doctors office for verification but they put her on hold for 10 minutes so she had to leave a voicemail. No one called back after 1.5 hours so I had to literally go back for another visit just to get an error-free prescription. I really think the doctor herself needs to go see a doctor, and I wouldn't recommend her to anyone, even if she happens to be the one with the earliest/only availability (I guess there has to be a reason why she's always available). Don't even bother to make a visit.

Dr. Yost is an extremely thorough and caring doctor. She took the time to gather every relevant piece of information necessary for her diagnosing and testing. During testing, she was extremely attentive and provided great context around eachtest and procedure. I've already scheduled my follow up with her! As for the wait time comments- she is definitely understaffed, but it does not take away from her skill or bedside manner.

Dr Yost is a good, thorough allergist. But she's part of a busy office. My first appointment was quick and to the point. I'm seeing her to try and diagnose bites/hives. She's very thorough in her testing to see what I'mallergic to. My second follow up appointment I waited almost an hour to be seen, but that wasn't a surprise, it was busy that day. My only gripe with the office is that at times, when I call to schedule or reschedule, I only get the answering service, but the staff immediately calls back the next day, which makes me think maybe they screen calls? Weird. Either way, I'll stick with her for now.

Dr. Yost definitely takes her time but is very interested in getting a complete history. Based on your history, she will recommend skin patch and/or blood work. She is very thorough and meticulous in her work. Expect a long wait fortests to develop on skin/gathering of materials for skin test, her assessment, and recommendations. Expect 2-3hrs minimum for initial testing, and 30minute -60 minute wait for follow up appointments.

First time visiting DR. Yost and any allergist for that matter. She had a lovely bedside manner and was extremely thorough in her evaluation and explanations. So much so that I don't think I have ever had such a detailed evaluation.She was very confident in her being able to control my symptoms even as I was getting worse right in her office. Her confidence in turn allowed me to feel more relaxed about my symptoms and recovery. Simply wonderful experience.

Dr Yost is extremely capable but so disorganized. I experienced an extremely long wait time to be seen (upwards of an hour) and the overall appointment took nearly 2 additional hrs (as she was going back and forth between myself andanother patient). More disconcerting was the state of the office: extremely disorganized and chaotic, rather filthy, which for an allergy doctor is quite unsettling. That being said, she did treat what was bothering me but I don't think I'll be going back

Dr. Yost was very attentive to my concerns over the bug bites that were causing an allergic reaction. She performed the common allergy test and noted that I was particularly allergic to dust mites and cockroaches. As others have mentioned, appointmentswith Dr. Yost run very late. I had a 10:45 am apointment for what I presumed to be 30 minutes. I did not get seen until close to 11:45 am and left the office at 1:15 pm. This was my first experience with the allergist, so I can only compare it to other doctor/dentist visits.

Doctor Yost seems very capable. She is personable and truly caring. However, I am sorry to say that I did not have the best overall experience at her practice. I visited the Doctor twice: the first time, I waited for 45minutes to be seen. The second time, I went in for a check up and a quick procedure that should have taken 15 minutes and took ~2hrs. Also, Her uptown office setup is not welcoming and seems disorganized. I think that the Doctor may need a solid office manager to help her with the business aspect of running a practice. Otherwise, she's quite good!

She was friendly, polite, and the wait time was only due to an emergency she was handling over the phone (And if I were on the other end of the call, I'd be extremely grateful for her time despite holding upother patients.) I'm going to continue treatments with Dr. Yost as a result of this great experience.

Doctor Sharon yost is a good allergist who is very through and really listens to you. Unfortunately she is overbooked and disorganized. If you are going to see her for an allergist test, expect to be there for at least 2.5hours. For things as simple as weekly immunization shots take at least 30 mins to an hour wait. She really needs to get a nurse to do the shots which seems to be the reason for appointments going over time.

I will continue to see her although the process took a little long to get started and the doctor seemed disorganized and distracted. The office is also a bit shabby. That being said, she clearly cares about her patients and theexam is very thorough- if you want to know what's causing your discomfort, I definitely recommend her.
