Dr. Yannopoulos – Testimonials

Dr Y was wonderful I learnt lot from from him . I liked him as soon as I Met him and he is so knowledgeable Looking forward to follow up on 6 weeks

Everyone gets A++ at H.O.S. I highly recommend this group of professionals. I am actually looking forward to my follow-up! PS: My back is much better just from the arthritis meds prescribed .... and I haven't even started my P.T. training yet.

Stellar diagnostician, with highly competent compassionate care and a true advocate for his patients esp appreciated during pandemic crisis. Remarkably bright, focused and even keeps a sense of humor to boot!

I give Doctor Yannapolis a 5 star rating. That's hardly enough. Some people represent the best in their profession. In sports they're elected to the Hall of Fame. If doctors have a hall this is where Doctor Yannapolis belongs. His no nonsense experienced approach may not be for some. For me it was refreshing. I was assured that I was in capable hands. My surgery was a resounding success. I am grateful for his great work.

Dr y. Was extremely understanding of my situation and was very professional and did an awesome job. I'm 100% recovered.
