I too have seen Dr. Yakes for an opinion about my eye condition. I also have a AVM that is attaching my optial nerve as well as other conditions with facial PWS. Even though he was unable to help me he is a great doctor. His staff is great. They really listen to you and make you feel at home but in a office LOL.
If you go see him let me know when you will go maybe we can get together. Even though I live in Nebraska now (lived in CO when I saw him) if I can make it work I would come out. I have family there I can stay with.
Hope all goes well.
