I was referred to Dr Yero for a second opinion. I had been diagnosed and under treatment for over two years with minimum improvement. My condition was not a rare one, but apparently it is commonly misdiagnosed. It took Dr Yero just one consultation to properly diagnose me and prescribe the treatment that has literally changed my life. I have no words to describe how thankful I am of being his patient. Thank you Dr Yero!
My son has been seeing Dr Yero for several years now and has had medical issues as well. No other doctor has helped him but Dr Yero did testing and found out results with diagnosis finally. He is a wonderful doctor who I have great respect for and very knowledgeable and spends time to listen to his patients. So so thankful for Dr Yero who is a great physician and very compassionate with his patients. Thank you again for helping us
Dr Yero is the best Psiquiatra doctor I’ve ever met, thanks yo him a recovered completely from depression Episode
Dr Yero is the best psychiatrist, I know what I'm saying, I was in a very dark place and with him I could be me again, many years ago and it's still the best, thank you doctor
Saved my life... I've been a patient with Yero for 8 yrs. Addiction. There were times (ONLY in the beginning) I truly hated Dr Y & in hindsight, I am eternally grateful for those times. Dr. Yero knew exactly what was going on & I just didn't like that I couldn't manipulate the man... Addiction teaches us to be Masters at this. He outsmarted me & got me on track. It's hard to recover. That's not his fault, but if you TRULY want the help you will find it with Sergio Yero ... IF YOU ARE GOING THERE TO SCORE SOME MEDS TO GET THRU A PERIOD OF TIME HE WILL KNOW SO DON'T GO. Otherwise, I can honestly say Dr Yero and for a time, Dr. Ortiz took me from my worst and held my hand through to getting my life back. 8 years later, I still see him. Time: they (psychiatrists) don't have the time most expect to get. Yero is not much different. So I recommend PROPER TIME SCHEDULING when you set up. Highly recommend.
As a patient for 6 years, I highly recommend Dr. Yero. He is extremely insightful when considering treatment solutions, and will consistently treat patients with empathy and respect. With a vast knowledge of psychiatric conditions, Dr. Yero is great at explaining the intricacies of a disorder as well as the chemical effects of medication on the brain. He is very attentive when addressing patient concerns, and conducts himself with integrity and honest character.
The Best! He’s the BEST doctor that has ever happened to my husband! Highly highly recommend. Truly a Brilliant and amazing doctor. I thank the lord everyday we found him.
Dr. Yero is very smart and personable. He went out of his way to help me when I had other medical issues. He seems truly interested patient's welfare and in further learning about the science of psychiatry. He was there for me when I was at the most difficult moment of my life. When I would leave his office after a session, I felt strong and more capable. He is a gem.
If I could give him 6 stars I would. Always available when needed. He's patient & cares for my well-being. He is determined & tenacious in his treatment of illness. Generous with his time & willingness to go above & beyond other drs. A unique practitioner in his approach to my treatment. His team is exceptional & an asset to the practice. I walk into my appointments feeling hopeless & leave feeling hopeful. In the 20 yrs. been dealing with depression, never experienced such wonderful care.
I have personally been seeing Dr. Sergio Yero for over two years while other members of my family see two other doctors in the practice namely, Dr. Wilbert Yeung and Dr. Eileen Zhivago. This is the rare doctor and the rare practice that strikes a perfect balance between competent expertise and professionalism with compassion and genuineness. I recommend Advanced Psychiatric Associates very highly.
