“Dr. Yinger is by far the most conscientious surgeon I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is a no none-sense guy and you can believe every word he says. He is the real deal….great surgeon, caring, timely, willing to spend time with the patient and if you don’t need surgery he is the first to tell you! The Santa Rosa community is lucky to have a Dr. and a human being as qualified, compassionate and thorough as Dr. Yinger! I am a huge fan as are all the other athletes and ex-athletes under his care!!!” -Nan Hall
