Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yoo "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)."
