I was fooled for a few years thinking Dr. Ryu even cared. I had several appointments where I asked for PAP smear and STD testing- to find out they only did STD test and i'd have to go back in. They have neglected to even call me to give results in the past despite not even posting them online. I was shocked with a $900 ultrasound on an ovarian cyst bill- no one even muttered it would be so pricey (whilst reccomending me to have them every 3 months). I have been given a perscription for Accutane to be told by the pharmacist he wasn't even allowed to prescribe it in the first place. I looked online at the potential side effects and was shocked he wouldn't even counsel me on it- let a long perscribe when he wasn't allowed. I have had my appointments cancelled not even a week in advance three times in my 4 years there. This past week they cancelled my appointment and couldn't get me in for another week and a half after already waitng two weeks for a time sensitive matter.

I saw Dr. Ryu to remove an endometrioma. Although it did return, the process with him was super.

I found Dr. Ryu after seeing a couple OBGYNs in the area who would not listen to my concerns about my heavy and painful periods. I have a family history of endometriosis, but other doctors were very dismissive. He listened to me and was able to do a surgery during which he excised endometriosis and endometrial polyps. The entire experience at Mercy has been great and I highly recommend his practice.

Dr. Ryu is very focused and down-to-business yet very kind and skilled. Before I went into surgery for a large ovarian cyst some of the hospital staff told me they would select him as their surgeon. I had a total hysterectomy by choice, laparoscopically. I have three tiny scars and felt good after two weeks; great after three. Would highly recommend Dr. Ryu.

I came to Dr Rhu terrified. My cancer had come back. I knew the probability of it was high but still being faced with it was overwhelming. The doctor carefully explained what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. The more he talked the less afraid I was. By the time I left his office I was ready to go and have this cancerous lymph node removed and get back to my life. He was there every day to check on me at the hos, Now we start chemo. I feel so positive with him handling it.

I went to see Dr.Ryu after dealing with a horrible gyn. My daughter found out about him through the hospital. He listens to all your concerns, answers all your questions and takes time to speak with you. Post surgery I am recovering extremely well. Overall, I was very impressed.
