Dr. Yezman’s intention is to meet each patient’s needs, and address each person physically, spiritually, and mental-emotionally. She has acquired a set of skills to address many different health issues. These treatments and techniques include:
Physical exam, including general, musculoskeletal, EENT, heart and lung, orthopedic and neurological assessments. One of more of these may be done to help evaluate your health issues further. Dr. Yezman has done numerous physical exams and will do her best to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Evaluation of blood, urine, stool and saliva by means of labwork obtained from an outside source. If you have labwork you want examined, please bring it in with you or complete the “Records Release” form on the Services and Form page of the website.
Soft tissue work such as muscle energy technique and strain- counterstrain. Dr. Yezman is experienced in soft tissue work and may use one of these techniques in combination with other methods. Most forms of bodywork stimulate circulation to the areas treated. This increases the body’s need for water and food. Be sure to drink water and eat well on days you are treated.
Dietary advice and therapeutic nutrition: including the use of foods, dietary plans, nutritional supplements and intra-muscular vitamin injections. Dr. Yezman has extensive experience with finding a person’s own special balance in nutrition.
Dr. Yezman carries an inventory of nutrient supplements, homeopathics, Western herbal medicines, and patented Chinese Medicine herbs. If any are recommended for you, Dr. Yezman will explain why it is beneficial and how to take them. Clear and detailed instructions will be given during the visit.
Hydrotherapy: includes the use of hot and cold water to improve the circulation of blood and lymph, and may include the use of gentle, safe levels of electrical current. Depending on the type of current and how strong the stimulation is, this will alleviate pain, relax muscles, or decrease swelling.
Acupressure of body, ear or scalp, moxa, electrical stimulation, acupressure with flower essences. Dr. Yezman is experienced in a wide range of techniques and completes them as gently and safely as possible.
If you experience any symptoms after treatment to a degree that concerns you, you are encouraged to call and talk with Dr. Yezman, or be sure to mention it at your next visit.
We respect your time and do not want you to wait too long in our waiting room. We are usually on time, and ready to see you at your scheduled appointment time. If we are going to be more than 10 minutes behind, we will try to reach you before your appointment to let you know. In return, we ask that you arrive a few minutes before your appointment so you are ready at your scheduled appointment time.
Dr. Yezman’s schedule can fill up in advance. If you are on a treatment plan that requires repeated visits, we suggest that you schedule the treatments as far in advance as possible.
If you have an appointment you cannot keep, please call us as soon as possible. We understand that schedules change and things come up. We will gladly reschedule your appointment. If you give us more than 48 hours notice, another patient will be happy to have your appointment slot. Our office staff and other patients will appreciate this advanced notice.
We understand that everyone makes mistakes and sometimes forgets an appointment. We do not want to charge you for missed appointments. We’d much rather see you! However, to safeguard our schedule against repeated no-shows, we charge $75 for a missed appointment or cancellation with less than 24 hours notice. If a patient consistently cancels or misses appointments, we may ask that patient to seek out a different practitioner.
