When I first went to Dr. Yeon for a pain in my back he sent me to PT saying that patients tend to get better after a month of PT but I should come back if I was not better after a month. I went to 6 sessions of PT and my pain got worse, coupled with numbness and a there was a hot sensation shooting down my leg. I was so bad that I couldn't go to the gym, I couldn't bare sitting at work, standing, walking I couldnt do anything other than lay down in bed. At 29 years old I couldnt live life like that. I called the office and he sent me for an MRI, then at my next appointment we reviewed the film together on the computer. He explained to me what was causing the symptoms. He asked me if I was comfortable with getting surgery one week from the day and I agreed. People urged me to get a second opinion, so I called a doctor's office I had called before Dr. Yeon the doctor was not available for the appointment until 2 weeks and surgery was "probably going to be in 3 weeks down in NYC" I also overheard on the phone the staff talking about scans that were missing for another patient. After speaking on the phone with the other doctor's office I decided to go full speed ahead with Dr. Yeon. Dr. Yeon may be considered short to some people but he is very informative, answered all my questions and he asked me if I any questions multiple times each time we were together. I had questions two days before my surgery and he took the time out to return my call and answered all my questions. I mentioned that I was nervous about reviews of him that I had read from another site and he encouraged me to get a second opinion if it would make me feel better. I decided not to because I felt he was the right guy for the job and I simply could not take the pain for another week plus the other reviews were not really the impression that I got from him. Once he operated he said my condition was worse than he could have predicted from the Xray, MRI and cat scan, he even said that he hadn't seen a herniated disc that bad for years but he took the extra time to clean up the area. At my follow up appointment when the bandages came off the nurse and I were amazed at how he even managed to get my tattoo lined up perfectly, as if there were no surgery at all, what a fanstastic job he did! So here I am one month after the surgery and the pain and numbness are GONE. I still get a little discomfort, at times mild pain in certain positions, which he said is to be expected but I should contact him if it gets worse or continues past 2 months. I highly recommend him. As far as him being cold, abrupt, etc. some people need their hands held more than others. If you dont want to hear you need surgery when that is the case, then maybe he isnt the doctor for you. He literally gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Yeon!

He didn't even examine me. He just said I had to have surgery. Then he walked out. I couldn't believe it. Don't use this guy. He's terrible.

While this doctor has oustanding credentials on paper, I was less than impressed with his bedside manners. As a new patient, he saw me for all of 8 to 10 minutes and dismissed or disregarded 90% of my questions. He very quickly looked at me and gave me a superficial diagnosis, then left the room as if he had better things to do with his time. When he left the examining room, I stood there with my mouth open as I could not believe that Harvard could graduate such technically qualified doctors who completely lack listening skills, compassion, or humility. I saw another doctor at a different hospital who spent over 45 minutes examining me, answering my questions, and listening to my concerns. He gave me a correct diagnosis of my condition. In other words, this doctor's assessment of my condition was wrong. I think it's too bad that such a seemingly qualified doctor's care is so stymied by his own hubris.

This guy is terrible. All he wanted to do was a fusion. I went the Pt near my home and my back is already better in 4 sessions. I don't recommend him. I would get a second opinion before allowing him to do anything.
