Philosophy of Care
Dr. Yadam wants his patients to know that he will take care of them with respect. He truly understands that the patient is in control and makes the final decisions. “Nothing is a small problem in my eyes,” he said. “I treat each patient the same. I give them options based on my diagnosis and respect what they come to decide.”
If he has spare time, Dr. Yadam enjoys playing tennis in the fall and golf in the summer. Without his wife and her unconditional support, Dr. Yadam said that he would not be where he is today. They have two children who are both following in their father’s footsteps to become physicians.
