Dr. Yoon was recommended by my breast cancer surgeon to perform reconstruction after a bilateral mastectomy. My surgeon told me that Dr. Yoon is very attentive to her patients, and she was right. Furthermore, she is an incredible surgeon and my reconstruction looks amazingly good. -Attentiveness-Dr. Yoon is very attentive. I have never felt rushed; she patiently and completely answers all questions; she personally phones to check in after surgery. When I was in the hospital, she came in on a Saturday to check on me and talked with the nurses to ensure that I was getting the care I needed. In the weeks after surgery, she follows her patients very closely, monitoring them as frequently as necessary to ensure everything is on track. She pays close attention to the patient and tailors treatment to the individual. -Careful-Dr. Yoon is extremely careful about patient health and safety. She carefully took into account specific aspects of my health, including my chemotherapy, as she designed and conducted my treatment plan. I have felt very safe in Dr. Yoon's care. -Excellent Bedside Manner-Dr. Yoon is very warm, kind, attentive, and patient. Also, it was very easy to reach Dr. Yoon after surgery to discuss concerns. -Courteous Staff-Dr. Yoon's office manager is very warm and kind as well. -Quality of Work-Absolutely Excellent. Dr. Yoon produced an amazing and beautiful reconstruction after my bilateral mastectomy. She is a very highly skilled surgeon and doctor.
Dr. Yoon is an incredible surgeon. I met her a few months ago and felt instantly comfortable, knowing that I was in great hands. It took nearly 10 years to be able to feasibly go through with a breast reduction and I was incredibly nervous about proceeding with such a life- changing operation. I finally worked up the courage to call her office and was greeted with kind words from her office manager. At my first appointment, I met with Dr. Yoon and she made me feel completely at ease. She gave me the chance to express all of my desires/concerns related to getting a breast reduction. She was open, honest and most importantly, caring. At the time, I felt intensely insecure and scared. Dr. Yoon caught on to this, and gave me some of the kindest words Iâve ever received; expressing that there is nothing to be ashamed of in wanting a breast reduction and I that I donât need this surgery to be beautiful. I was blown away. Dr. Yoon is also fairly conservative and expressed concerns about breastfeeding and other important factors, which speaks volumes about how much she cares about her patients and their well-being. I left feeling empowered, excited and confident about moving forward with surgery. In June, I had my breast reduction surgery and it was honestly one of the best days of my life. I went into it completely confident with Dr. Yoon and ready to change my life. The surgery went beautifully, and Iâm extremely pleased with the results. I have these beautiful, petite breasts and I know this sounds strange, but I feel like a walking work of art! Dr. Yoon paid such close attention to detail and I walked away with amazing results. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have Dr. Yoon as my surgeon and would highly recommend her to anyone. Picking the right surgeon is a monumental decision, and not something that I would take lightly. In consideration of that, I would 100% recommend Dr. Yoon to not only friends, but family.
Words cannot express my gratitude for this fabulous Surgeon. I appreciate everything about her; I have never felt rushed and her bedside manner and surgical skills are TOP NOTCH. She has gone above and beyond in every possible aspect, I trust her impeccably, and couldn't imagine being more comfortable in her hands. Despite the need for bilateral nipple sparing mastectomy, recovery was easy and I am very happy with the results. She has always returned any call within minutes; even on Christmas Eve! You simply won't find anyone that put you more at ease. True gem.
Excellent plastic surgeon and very professional. Dr. Yoon is very polite and friendly. She has the respect of her peers and nurses in the hospitals. Her patient's follow up care is extremely important to her. Thank you for listening to my need and wants.
