What others are saying

  • The surgical assistant we worked with has been an exceptional asset to our team.  Always on time and knowledgeable about OR procedures.

    Dr. Anders Springfield, IL
  • Hands down, this is the best service around. Not only are all the assistants qualified and professional, but they helped my practice grow because I’m able to keep my mid-level providers in the office now.  YEHSS has proven to be totally committed to quality surgical service.

    Dr. De La Torre Beach Sand, FL
  • In the past, I’ve had trouble finding a reliable surgical assistant that I didn’t have to hire.  YEHSS made this a moot issue by sending me one of the best people I’ve worked with in the field. Professional, courteous, energetic, and always interested in learning new things.  It’s been a pleasure working with everyone in the office.
