Dr. Yonz sees patients in St. Marys, Ga. He has a deep understanding of
both surgical and nonsurgical treatments, managing injuries in-season,
preventing injuries, and the intricate working relationship between trainers,
coaches and doctors. Practicing patient-centered medicine, he takes the
time to listen and understand his patient’s problems to ensure the
best treatment plan.

especially golfing, walking, hiking and kayaking. Although Dr. Yonz had
his pick of Health System’s to choose from throughout the country,
he decided to return to his roots and family in Georgia following medical
