He was interested more in discussing Chicago real estate he was thinking of buying. Would never go back. Saw him when he was at Wash U/Barnes. Mo Bap made a bad decision to run their pain dept.

Dr. Yi administered several shots to relieve my left lumbosacral radiculopathy. I was in intense pain but he skillfully turned my situation around. I commend him for his talent and great medical skill. He helped me in 2016 and I will never forget his kindness. My sciatica has not given me much trouble until this year 2020 but I was able to use advil to calm it down. Between Dr.Yi and Dr.Ockner I am up and running. Thank you both so very much. Betty Ativie

Absolutely horrible experience with Mr. Yi. He spent no more than 90 seconds with me. He did not examine my MRIs nor did any assessment of my medical issues. He asked one question and did not seem to listen at all. I spent significant time and energy to set up this appointment in order to have medical treatment for my physical problems. He showed blatant disregard and callous indifference towards me as a patient. MoBap should not have this man in charge of their pain management clinic.

I have bern a patient of Dr. Yi’s for about 8 years. While he has a very kind disposition,?it is sometimes difficult to get a point across. Now that he manages Missouri Baptist Hospital’s pain management center. Things have gotten dire due to the governments opioid intervention policys. Good, homest people are being accused of abusing medication just to reduce the number of patients on them. A terrible policy leaving patients two options: have a surgery or quit the meds cold turkey.

Been going few months , finally got a nerve ablation done on back , got about 2 weeks relief. When I went back in he did not take 2 minutes with me , only long enough to tell me no more pain meds with no explanation and no other plan, just left me hurting as I have several chronic pain conditions. Very poor communication !! Will be finding another dr that will at least talk to me about my situation and have a plan .

I've been going to Dr. YI for 6 years. I see him on a regular basis for Botox injections for pain, epidurals, and nerve blocks. He's completely changed my life. I went from being bed ridden to living again. I have several pain conditions following 2 cervical fusions, from other neurosurgeons. I was left with extreme chronic pain, in my neck, shoulders, upper back, face, and head. Dr Yi knows his stuff! Hes never on time with appointments, but with the pain relief I get its totally worth it.
