Dr. Yakes had been invaluable to our family to get us through mild dementia to severe impairment. She is patient and kind to my mother in law and she helps the family navigate the rapid changes. I wish she was accepting new patients for my mother.

We could not possibly ask for a better physician than Dr. Yakes. She is one of the most important reasons we decided to spend our retirement years in Nashville.

Dr Yakes is a wonderful physician. She does not overtreat, which we really appreciate, and she immediately addresses a concern that she senses needing prompt attention. We also appreciate how promptly she responds to us via MyHealthAtVanderbilt regarding questions regarding prescriptions, lab results or other concerns.
