Dr. Yialto (sp) is smart, careful and empathetic. He listens and used this dialogue to inform his medical decisions as well as any doctor I have ever seen. (Given my health, I have a statically significant number of doctors.) My advise to BSW is to keep this young man around. In the nest 30 years he can build an important pillar in your medical structure.

Dr Ylitalo has been an outstanding medical professional since I first met him in 2016. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and to explain my options regarding post surgery for Prostate Cancer. He is very personable and always has a positive and professional attitude. I would not choose any other Urologist to take care of my medical concerns.

Spent time listening, asked good questions. Looked at a previous MRI and found something hinky. Did a procedure to see if what he saw on the MRI was what he thought and proposed a further procedure to hopefully solve it. All within 90 minutes. Outstanding staff!!
