He listens, cares and gently redirects when needed. He displays his own natural curiosity for medicine. He leads by example, picture of complete control. with knowledge to be able to reach his audience. internal medicine needs another look. I feel like he could use this and go further as a doctor than any I've met thus far. I've lived all over the country. He is the first to not insult me with arrogance and ignorance at the same time. He is the poster child of what family medicine is supposed to be. Dec 20, 2019 Dr Ymalay is absolutely the best doctor I have ever had. He listens and he cares. I hope he is available to me for many years to come. Thank you so much! Dec 16, 2019 Have always had exception service at the Independence facility.
