The wonderful physician I had seen for many years retired. As a colon cancer patient with numerous colonoscopies under my belt I was looking for a physician with training and a speciality in colorectal diseases. Is the MD interested in me as a patient, would take the time to listen to my concerns explain things within the context of my history. Dr. Peter Youn did just that during my initial office visit. He listens carefully, explains in detail what to expect before, during and post procedure. He visits his patients just before the procedure and during recovery. This is not always done at other facilities. Each time I saw him he asked if I had questions. Dr. Youn is professional, friendly, and skilled with a little more than 20 years. Dr. Youn’s staff is outstanding from the moment you first enter the office. Each person is extremely friendly, professional, kind, and helpful. Their adherence to the Covid protocol is on point. My experience was outstanding.

kma – Aug 15, 2021
This guy gutted me like a fish- even though non-invasive surgery was an option. Then the wound reopened and he didn't care. I wrote him a review on another page and when I was coming out of anesthesia for a follow up colonoscopy, he chose THAT point to discuss it with me. Look, he's like a doctor around 1900. You get bit by a snake and even though antivenom is available and he's certified to use it, HE would be more comfortable just cutting your leg off... leaving you permanently damaged, like he did me! I don't know what he did, but he definitely messed with some other stuff while he was in there! Now, Im gassier than a grazing cow and I eat anything spicy or with garlic and I'm running for the can 5 times before the night is out. His staff is also terrible- they don't email, or forward messages, or read messages... which is why they called me a year after to schedule another colonoscopy with him.

Eric Hansen – Nov 15, 2020
Doctor does not listen to patients and their issues or considers their history. Prescribes his own specific brands for treatments even when no real difference between products and then pushes patient off onto another doctor if they push back in any way. Prime example of an arrogant doctor.

Another gold standard doctor! I went to Dr Youn on the advice of a co worker who's husband had been treated by Dr Youn. He's a class act. I had a very specific issue after having colon surgery with another doctor and he helped treat it, fix it and recommended some follow up. I did everything he told me to do and it worked. I've been back a few times since including letting him do my colonoscopy. He's fantastic.

T Gibson – Apr 30, 2020
Dr Youn helped my 87 year-old mom with such TLC! My mom’s colorectal surgery was very successful and she has made a full recovery. Dr Youn has an excellent bedside manner and clearly explained all pros and cons prior to Mom’s surgery. After surgery Dr Youn also took his time answering our multiple questions. His practice is very busy, yet we never felt rushed in office. My mom is healed and I will continue to help her with her follow up care.

Great experience all things considered. I did have an issue with a nasty person billing otherwise I would have rated 5 stars. I should have followed up and complained as I received a bill months later after have been proactive in payment follow up. She was also nasty and seemed spiteful. Dr Youn is a true seasoned pro!
