I had to have emergency surgery on a Sunday. Dr. Yutzi, and the entire staff at Providence Newberg Medical Center made me feel safe and cared for. Dr. Yutzi was very good at taking the time to explain the procedure I was admitted for and answered all of my questions easily. I would recommend this doctor and this hospital with the highest regard.

Was hesitant to see a surgeon unfamiliar to me but after my visit I was more than satisfied with her communication, compassion and understanding and explanation of what was going to happen with me and my care. I feel I am in very good hands. That is a good feeling going into bresat surgery.
