Ear, Nose, and Throat | Male

Care Philosophy

As an Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) specialist, I emphasize an active listening process during patient encounters in a non-rushed setting to thoroughly evaluate patient problems, symptoms, and concerns. Each patient is treated not like a number, but as a unique individual (as a family member would be treated).

Houston, texas |
Some of the office staff apparently does not understand that there really can be ent "emergencies", for example, when prompt attention to a short term hearing loss can rapidly lead to permanent profound hearing loss. Person at front desk showed no interest in my situation. I believe that in some instances the non-professional should ask for guidance from someone on the medical staff. As a result of this instance, I had to seek treatment at an emergency clinic. Very disappointing.

I am always worried when seeing a new doctor but was pleasantly surprised by the excellent treatment by doctor Yoo. He was so patient and thorough it was very refreshing. He also has an excellent personality and puts you at ease. Highly recommend!!

I saw Dr. Yoo a few months ago about a cyst on my face. He was confident in removing it and said we had to wait as I was 5 months pregnant. I was told to contact his office after my pregnancy to schedule an appointment for the surgery. I have been leaving messages for his scheduler for almost two weeks now and still have not received a call back. I called again today and asked to speak with the office manager because if I need to find another doctor I would appreciate being told so.

Dr. Yoo is the FIRST doctor that has ever sat down and explained my issues and treatment options in such depth. He is very friendly and explains things clearly.
