General Info

Dr. Yates received his Medical Degree from Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. He then completed his fellowship in Infectious Diseases from University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas. His primary research area during fellowship was fungal infections in immunocompromised hosts. Dr. Yates moved back to Indiana to work with a former faculty member at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. At Methodist he became Chairman of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. He also began his work in antimicrobial stewardship here, which has now grown to involve multiple hospitals. After 6 years in Indianapolis he moved back to his home state of Texas to join Dr. Hickerson in Tyler. They eventually formed East Texas Infectious Disease Consultants in order to serve Tyler and the East Texas region. While in Tyler the practice has grown to include 3 Infectious Disease physicians and a full-time nurse practitioner. The practice has grown to include consultative services at 4 hospitals, travel medicine, outpatient infusion services and HIV care. Dr. Yates currently is chairman of the P&T committees at three hospitals. He served as Chief of Medicine at East Texas Medical Center for 5 years. He also serves on the critical care committee and the transplant committee. One of the most exciting aspects of Dr. Yates' practice is the success of the antimicrobial stewardship programs which has has started in Tyler. The goal of these programs is to team with pharmacy and the medical staff to use antibiotics wisely, in order to decrease the amount of resistance seen in hospitals. During the last 3 years these programs have met with great success. He hopes to grow the antibiotic stewardship program to include multiple hospital systems.
