Both the PA, Yirka, and my surgeon, Dr Haidet, are wonderful and I cannot express how much I genuinely like both of them. I had an extremely bad wrist fracture a few years ago, Dr Haidet did a phenomenal job putting my wrist back together so I cannot express how grateful I am for him. He and Yirka both apologized to me for my long wait before I was seen, not a common practice for most physicians, unfortunately...would definitely recommend them both for their expertise.
