Completely dissatisfied with the help and service I received from Dr. Gerald Yoon and his office. The office itself is old and depressing. The service is terrible. If you are required to make an appointment and have all your paperwork filled out when you go there they you shouldn’t have to wait an hour before you actually see the doctor. Sat in the waiting room for 35 minutes then was put in a room for another 30 minutes. Ridiculous! What’s the point of having an appointment?!! STAY FAR AWAY!

Office staff is rude & very unprofessional; After my surgery I called the office with concerns . Non medical professionals (office clerks) attempted to give me medical advice rather than scheduling a follow up appointment for me. I would not recommend this physician or this office.
