Vitals Forefront Dermatology
Dr. Yoon excised a basal cell carcinoma from my back yesterday. He has performed Moh's surgery on my face previously, all with excellent results. I have been a patient of his for over ten years, and have found him to be very competent, compassionate, and personable. J. McGowan

Had two MOHS procedures done for two basal cell tumors. First one went very quickly and smoothly. The second one turned out to be a little more tricky but Dr. Yoon and his staff took very good care of me and things went pretty well. Everything has been healing up nicely with minimal scarring. Was pleased with the whole experience. This will be the place I go if there is a next time.

Dr. Upon Took the time to explain the procedure and alternate choices. Although my procedure was short, it didn’t seem like he was rushing to get to the next patient.

Exceptional medical treatment. Kind and caring environment. He and his staff strive to make a difficult situation easier to bear. We would recommend him to all, believing that he would always give his best. We are grateful.

Took my 93 year old father in law for some nasty skin cancers. He treated him with much kindness and so much respect. His recommendation was based on what was best for him at his advanced age. Couldn’t ask for more personalized, wonderful treatment.

Always Excellent Service! My husband has been a patient of Dr. Yoon's for many years now...even before he was at the North Forty location. We have always, always been satisfied with his work and his staff too. Everything is thoroughly explained and the process to follow afterwards is as well. Dr. Yoon and his staff make a not necessarily good situation very comfortable.

I have been to Dr. Yoon about ten times and would never consider going any other doctor. Excellent Doctor . He and his staff are very professional and friendly. Once you choose Dr. Yoon you will never go anywhere else.

Other than 2 knee replacements, this is my only surgical experience. It was excellent, on time, painless, and is healing nicely. Thanks.
