He was very knowledgeable and seemed very caring. I had 2 previous neck surgeries and was concerned I would be too risky but he is doing my surgery. He was realistic about likely outcomes. Good listener. Would recommend.

Your resident or associate saw me in Abingdon Seeing the pain I had, a kyroplasty (cement injection) was never mentioned by either him or you. I had to be my own advocate to find out about the. relief from this procedure. I suffered terribly for days until I could be scheduled for it. You told me to wait 4 to 6 weeks to see you and you were gone. Lucky for me I had a wonderful orthopedic surgeon who made arrangements for me. Disappointed with your service doesn't even cover it

Don’t have anything against him like a doctor but the whole system stinks. Made an appointment only to find out he doesn’t deal with what I have? Seriously? Nobody from the nurses could tell me when I made the appointment? Waisted 1 month to see him and find out from him in person that I have to go back to my old doctor? Good job Jefferson ! That’s how you make money through the insurance companies! Who cares about us, patients? Shame on the whole medical system!!!

This is my second surgery with dr yoon. Once again he is the perfect surgeon, skilled, kind, not embarrassed by my emotional response after my surgery. His PA Keith was wonderful and really made a difference in my experience of my recovery. I would recommend him, and have, to anyone seeking a top notch neurosurgeon and a very helpful office staff as well.

Having suffered for around 7 years with increasing discomfort and loss of function in my left leg and foot, my family physician thought it might be a good idea to have another MRI and get another opinion as to the cause. I had previously been to 2 neurosurgeons and one orthopedic surgeon with no answer. Dr. Yoon after examining and interviewing me took a second look at the MRIs recent and previous and evidently located the problem. I am 6+ weeks out and am regaining leg function and with no pain

It was a while ago that I went to see him. I asked a question or two and felt like I was bothering him. Like he had someplace else to be. I never went back. I found another surgeon and had a serious operation to fix my back pain. The new surgeon was very friendly and answered all of my questions. He never made me feel stupid.
