25/04/12 1 1 1 1 After waiting over an hour, I saw the physician's assistant. Not only was he offended and defensive with the questions I asked, he was quick to prescribe an antibiotic without taking a bacterial culture to confirm that it was necessary. With news about antibiotics being overprescribed - leading to the creation of "superbugs" - it's disturbing that the PA responded to such a comment with the following: "you're not making any sense." Aside from that, hundreds of patient files line the hallway (and why are medical supplies left open to air, unsterile)...good luck with that! DON'T GO TO THIS DR's OFFICE!  Respond

30/06/11 1 1 1 1 Dr. Yambo is a good doctor. However you better believe you will spend your whole entire day in his office. All he needs is a new staff with a more professional attitude and positive work ethics...  Respond

29/01/10 2 1 3 3 My mother brought me to Dr. Yambo as a child, and he continued to be my PCP until I was old enough to choose my own doctor. He himself is a nice guy, but the majority of the time you make an appointment with him, you're going to end up seeing a physician's assistant. Regardless of who you see (Dr. Yambo or a P.A.), you'll spend a rediculous amount of time in the waiting room, and they'll spend as little time with you in the exam room as possible. I went there for years and honestly can't remember waiting less than 2 hours to see the doctor. Another reason I stopped going to Yambo was he was too quick to push meds without ever trying to get to the root of the problem.  Respond
