Where do I start? From the beginning I was impressed with his warm and caring attitude.He was efficient and thorough in his questioning, and I felt assured that he had established a complete medical picture as he asked questions that jogged my memoryof long forgotten aches . He also explained to me why he raised certain questions, and inthe end, I felt very safe that I was in very knowledgable hands.I just felt like he knew what he was talking about. I trust him.!

Doctor Yancy is a dedicated, kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable and compassionate person. I don't know what I would have done without him. We did it together — it is the Class of 2020. My ejection fraction is finally 60.In addition, I would like to say Dr. Yancy took the time to explain the questions I had asked him about the virus and the vaccine that will be available soon. I really want to thank him for that. Many people are very scared of the virus and vaccine. Thank you again for just being you.
