When I found out that I may need surgery for my thyroid cancer, I met with few surgeons. Dr. Yim carries all the values I heard about City of Hope. He is an excellent surgeon. Some other famous surgeon missed the extent of my disease. He found out and he is so down to earth that he brought on another excellent surgeon within City of Hope for the part of surgery that he could do but felt it is in my interest the surgeon expert on that part carry that part of operation. My vocal cord nerve was different than normal anatomy and with my position of my vocal cord going through cancer, if any other surgeon operated on me, I would have no voice. Due to the difficulty that this resulted he spent additional 90 minutes to save my voice! He is very compassionate in his work and he has worked on some natural medication to help with cancer which I would be the first to buy when it comes to market. He is one surgeon that truly is in field to help his patients. He takes care of his patient by being available even without appointments. He even let me communicate with him through email. So, I hope if someone reading this means he/she may need surgery. And if you do, consider city of Hope and its excellent surgeons including Dr. John Yim.

One of the most experienced thyroid surgeons in SoCal. Didn't jump to doing surgery for my nodules but recommended Affirma genetic test which came back as I "no cancer" verdict even though 2 other surgeons said I had cancer and were ready to operate. The best. A++

DIr Yim operated on me when the surgeons at UCLA and Cedars Sinai said I was too sick to operate on. He was confident and managed every aspect of my care personally. Dr Yim did a wonderful job and now I am healthy and doing great. He is a nice man and wonderful surgeon who gives the opinion he really cares very much about his patients.

A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. John H Yim - Posted on April 13th, 2012
Patient, kind and very genuine. Spends a lot of time explaining procedures and listening to one's concerns. A good communicator and not just a "technician," but a diagnostician too. Follows-up scheduling any labs or scans and coordinates with other physicians. Dr. Yim is not the stereotypical aloof, egocentric surgeon!
