Bully of a doctor

He has a giant ego, an abhorrent bedside manner, and asked for imaging I wasn't told to bring. He was skeptical and rude about my prior surgeries, saying that they seem to be unnecessary and "controversial". Before surgery, four other surgeons agreed I needed surgery. I had also exhausted all other options from injections to PT to meds. He said he's "conservative" with surgery, accusing other well respected doctors of the opposite. He used jargon I didn't understand. He offered no help or hope.

L4-S1 TLIF Spinal Fusion

Dr. Yoon recently did my surgery. It went perfectly. Pain was well controlled. No issues with incision. Actually it was the least bothersome part. He completely removed the pain i had going down my legs. I highly recommend him. Very nice man and great surgeon.

One Star

I give him one star due to while performing a specific surgery, he performed an additional surgery which I had not signed a consent for. And was not advised of additonal surgery until my first post op office visit.

Felt very uncomfortable with him

Taking the tests he ordered to someone else. I just was not comfortable from the start. I am glad I looked here before going back as I sometimes second-guess myself. This many negative reviews confirm my initial impressions that his is not the doc for me!

Rude

Dr. Yoon was very rude and didn't seem to care or want to listen to our concerns. I will not EVER see him again and would not recommend him at all!
