Great visit with Dr. Yocom. Listened to my concerns, provided guidance to my possible treatment and explained options. Additionally he ordered additional MRI/X-Ray to update my condition. Was concerned regarding an issue with my voice and advised I contact an ENT physician to evaluate for potential concerns with surgery. Highly recommend!

First time being seeing by Dr. Yocom. He was very understanding and listened to my concerns. Provided me the answers to my questions. Surgery was not recommended due to my health issues. But If my condition turns for the worse, I know he will be the Doctor to go to. He was great with everything!
