Patient Comments (6)
in St Louis, MO |
Dr. Yoon was a very good doctor. He had me try other things before surgery. I like the fact he didn't rush into surgery. He answered all of my questions. He also do surgery on my husband and was very good. That is why I went to him.
in St Peters, MO |
I had a L4-S1 TLIF for major pain running down my legs. Dr. Yoon verified what my primary care physician said. He recommended the surgery ASAP. Dr. Yoon is great. The surgery was a complete success. He and all his assistants, as well as the office staff were very professional. Their recommendations and care were spot on. I highly recommend Dr. Yoon.
in Ballwin |
Absolutely fixed my spinal stenosis and have been pain free for over a year now.
St Charles, MO |
Not good. We had to go to another doctor to address a back issue that that was clear on the MRI.
in St. Louis County, MO |
Very good. Provided various options before surgery.
in O'Fallon |
He did a microdiscectomy for me and I had immediate relief. That was 5 years ago and I'm still fine. I've gone back a couple of times when I fell and landed on my back and he's been honest and didn't rush to surgery. He has a quiet and solemn demeanor, but if you're serious and ask questions he'll answer them all well. He's also treated both of my in laws and they're doing great too.
