Dr. Yutzie and her nurse are just amazing! They genuinely care about me and my health issues. I always feel relaxed and at ease during my appointments.

She is awesome in both her technical skill and her people skills. Her nurse assistant was so helpful, too and friendly and knowledgeable.

This was the first time I met Dr. Yutzie. I was referred to her on an urgent basis for surgery. Every encounter I had with her was great.
