i was pleasantly surprised at the friendly attitude of Dr. Yoon and his staff. The surgery was performed with a minimum of discomfort as are the follow-up visits. There is a feeling of harmony in the office that is very comforting to the patients. Highly recommended.

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.
