Dr. Yoo has performed several procedures on me and I have 100% confidence in his skill. Since I have never had any "complications," I can't comment on how he would deal with that situation, but I trust he would continue to provide me with excellent care.

Being that this is a pre melanoma or at least explained to me by my regular derm doc, I was a bit anxious when I arrived and when Dr. Yoo told me that it is indeed a melanoma. It was told in a very honest and matter of fact way that did shock me a bit. I am confident in Dr Yoo's skill and expertise.

I appreciate Dr. Yoo's care. However, he is always very rushed and I would appreciate his taking a minute to calmly listen to a concern I might have.

Dr. Yu is super busy. He's clearly extremely talented and a doctor of choice, but it makes it hard to feel like I can ask 2-3 questions because he's always about to run out of the room.

August 10, 2018

While I thought Dr. Yoo was very knowledgeable about my concerns his demeanor was a bit patronizing. I felt I was an inconvenience and he had more "important" patients to see. He was rushed and showed the least bit of concern for my issues. Again, I don't question his qualifications but he needs some work in the patient/doctor relationship department.
