About Dr. Yaswinski

Philosophy of care

My partner and I treat people like family. We respond to questions immediately, and when we order tests, our philosophy is that we should call every patient with results ourselves. I make those calls every day before I go home for supper. That way patients can make the most informed decisions about their care. We work closely with colleagues at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest and are very happy to refer our patients to specialists in disciplines like infertility and gynecologic oncology. We make sure we abide by screening guidelines for tests such as bone density so we can refer our patients for appropriate treatment.

Why I entered medicine

I grew up in the Lehigh Valley, where a lot of family friends were physicians, and I was struck by how they took care of patients and had great concern for them. I wanted to help people get healthy and stay healthy, and was most interested in delivering babies. Even though I no longer practice obstetrics, I’ve been here since 1980s and have delivered about 3,000 babies for area families. People I’ve delivered often bring their own children back to see me, and that’s very rewarding.

Community involvement

I’ve been on an advisory board for the local Red Cross and contribute to that organization and the Salvation Army, which is a major provider for local poor and homeless people. Many of our homeless are veterans who served their country and are now sick. The Salvation Army takes care of a lot of them. I appreciate the work they’ve done for vets who have come on hard times.

Personal interests

Beyond spending time with my wife, who is a local bookkeeper, and our two college-age kids, I like outdoor activities like water sports, hiking, fishing and camping. I grew up that way – my parents always had us doing things outdoors. We usually do a beach trip to Cape May in the summer. When you work indoors all week, it’s nice to be out waterskiing or being in the natural environment.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
