“Dr. Yakel was patient with me and let me explain my accident that happened years ago. I kept interrupting him (because I have a TBI and can’t remember every single thing), but he let me continue. He also showed me where the L1 and T5 are that I am having issues with. Amiable and informative doctor. Friendly bedside manner as well. Thank you.”

“I had received an evaluation and treatment plan from another physician that just seemed excessive. I did my homework and found Dr. Yakel online. Because he offers a clinic in Worland, I scheduled an appointment. From the beginning, I felt like Dr. Yakel heard my concerns and offered a much more reasonable solution. The professional manner in which he offered an alternative without negating the opinion of the first physician showed an extremely high commitment to ethics in my opinion. By validating my experience, I had no doubt I was making the right decision and scheduled my surgery.”

“Dr. Yakel was referred to me by my mom whose husband had neck and back surgery. The surgery was a success, and his pain has all but gone away.

This is what Dr. Yakel specializes in, and I'm looking forward to a successful operation as well.”
