Providence Health & Services Patient

She is a wonderful care provider and makes sure that I understand all that she is saying about my health concerns and care.
Providence Health & Services Patient

Dr. Yutzie is wonderful. This is the second time she has performed a lumpectomy on me. I wouldn't consider having anyone else do it! [...] When she found out that I could have breast cancer again she called me and set up my visit with her. She's the one who gave me my results. After surgery she called me again with the tissue reports and set up my next appt with her. I really love and appreciate her, her talent, her kind and caring attitude, her concern for me and my well being.
