    Dr Yorek and his nurses are the best
    He is the most caring Dr! He always takes the time to listen, and I have never felt rushed like I have with other Dr’s
    Highly recommend...Yes...
    Dr. Yorek views the patient as an individual. He thinks out of the box and does not treat from a formulaic basis. He asks questions, and he listens. He answers questions and replies to comments without any hint of ridicule or judgment. He is committed to finding answers when the patient's complaints do not fit an obvious pattern. He never seems rushed or impatient. The wait time was longer than expected, but it was worth it, because I know the patients ahead of me were receiving the same kind of attention I
    I have recommended Dr. Yorek to several friends and family. At least three new patients who are my friends have selected him as their primary care provider. His high level of medical knowledge and diagnostic abilities are matched by his very positive and engaging personality. My husband and I have never had a physician so capable on so many levels. We feel much safer and more mentally secure regarding health questions because of him.
    Great Doctor, good clinic, needs improvement for check-in process.
    Dr. Yorek and his staff are thorough and care about you not only as a patient but as a person. I’d recommend them to anyone/everyone looking for a great Primary Care Physician. They have become like family to me!
    Dr.Michael Yorek, really care about his patients!!!
    If you are looking for a clinic where everyone there is interested in helping you, this is the place.
    It was my first visit to Dr. Yorek's office and I was very impressed with Dr. Yorek and all the staff I had contact with. The doctor and staff made me feel comfortable, they were professional and compassionate and knowledgeable. I was treated very well and was very satisfied with the care I received! There is a peace in that office that I can't describe ??
    Good family practice.
    Dr. Michael Yorek is friendly and makes you feel comfortable. He is a good listener and he encourages you in the things you are doing! I'm very happy to have him as my doctor.
    Great doctor and nurse!
    Dr Yorek is a excellent Physician.
    Dr. Yorek is an excellent physician. In addition to that, he spends time listening to better understand my problems. I feel like he really cares about my well-being.
    One of the most put together Doctors office I've ever been and Dr. Yorek is the best Doctor I've ever had!! His staff is great!
    this was the initial visit with the doctor after my prior doctor moved to a different type of practice. there were no issues to be resolved so I have no real opinion of the doctor other than he was professional and easy to speak with.
    My overall impression is good. I suspect that just about any doctor, except perhaps those with a concierge ($$$$) practice, have too many patients to get very deeply involved in any one patient's situation. For best results, a patient of this doctor should be very knowledgeable of their own health history, and bring up every concern as soon as possible during the visit. This doctor gives referrals readily, but I don't think the referred provider always receives the context/concern that prompted the referral
    Dr Yorek’s office is extremely knowledgeable in my healthcare. They are the most caring staff I have ever encountered.
