I have been visiting him for 37 years.  Even though, he is now 30 miles from where I live, because he is a good doctor and he talks nice to you, I still visit him.  I need not wait weeks together to get an appointment.  He doesn't order a lot of extra tests that are not needed.  He is a very good doctor.  I have shifted all my medical care to the town where I live now, but I still go to Dr. Yager....
