What People Say About Dr. Yoon Nofsinger, MD

Constantly late, arrogant and demeaning attitude. She was more interested in milking my insurance than in actually helping me. Pointless follow ups just to charge for extra visits. Every appointment was at least 40 minutes late, 1-hour average over the scheduled time. Absolutely does not like to take questions and feels that if you ask them you are "arguing with her".

I should have checked the reviews before I wasted my time and money. I got a $250 nasal scope procedure which was sold to me by the receptionist. After a ridiculously long wait and virtually no exam at all, the doctor scoped me, saw nothing wrong, and pointed me to the door. Several months later my symptoms worsened so I came for a second appointment. The office was locked up and when I called they said someone was indeed there and put me on hold. After 10 minutes of standing outside I left.

Not a very efficient administrative office. They don't call beforehand for appointment reminders unlike other doctors offices. They have a very lousy administrative system. I know because they are so unlike the other doctor offices that I deal with. I do not blame Dr. Nofsinger for her personality if that is how she is. I blame mostly the office staff for not caring about their patients. I am looking now for another doctor.

No bedside manners, didn't apologize for being 1.5 hours late, and left me alone in a room after I passed out from a procedure. $450 for barely 5 minutes of her time is acceptable.

Sitting here an hour after my appointment time and still have not been seen by the doctor. Completely disrespectful of my time.

I visited Dr. Nofsinger for increased tooth pain, a symptom she knew of following a recent hospital visit. When she entered the room, prior to a cursory examination she informed me that it was a dental issue, despite the fact my discharge papers reading otherwise. After recording frustration that I'd be charged a copay for that, she graciously waived my fee and provided me with useful paperwork, hence the 2 stars. Today I'm painfully congested with post nasal drip. I'm no MD, but can do math.

I wish I read these reviews before I scheduled an appointment with her. She didn't even do a basic exam like looking up my nose. She cuts you off as you're giving symptoms. Then points you to the door to pay. Wasted $60 with information I already knew. You couldn't pay me to go back to her. Her partners have better reviews but whatever you do... DO NOT SCHEDULE WITH HER!

I'm in the medical field and deal with patients myself, so I understand the stress, but this was the worst visit I've ever experienced when dealing with any medical professional. Shocking actually. Simply put - don't do it Oh yeah - One more thing - Don't sign the nasal scope scam at the beginning of your appointment!!!!

Argumentative. Did not listen to symptoms. Spoke to me like I was an idiot who shouldn't be there wasting her time. Barely explained her diagnosis to me. Rude. She got up left the room and pointed me to the exit. Would not recommend to anyone. Horrible experience

Dr.Nofsinger is competent, knowledgeable, and caring. I would not go anywhere else to receive the level of care that she has given to me. She should be highly recommended!
