My care provider (specialist) is fantastic. I did have a lot of trouble actually getting some of the tests I needed to have done. I wish that it were possible to schedule MRIs, for example, online, rather than phoning.

I have already told several friends of the great experience I had with Dr Yutzie. She listens and takes time to make sure I understood the options she said were all good and listened to my questions and response with my decision. She set a plan for me until I needed to come see her again. Her touch to examen is very gentle.

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.
