The office was very small and didn't seem super legit at first but the care was great and I really enjoy Dr. Yoo's directness when discussing treatment. He was quick, helpful, answered all my questions, and was very clear with what's necessary for the rest of my treatment.

Dr Yoo was helpful in his practice but I had to wait an hour before I could see the doctor which was frustrating since I left work early.

Dr Yoo was very attentive to my needs and special circumstances. He explains things really well and has a lot of compassion. He also didn’t try and oversell me sessions or treatments or X-rays I didn’t need, which is refreshing and I appreciate very much.

I found Dr. Yoo courteous and serious about his work. I struggled a little with his English, but it didn't take long before I had a good feel for the eccentricities of his pronunciation. He might consider speaking a little slower.

I really enjoyed meeting with Dr. Won Yoo. He was thorough, listened well, and explained everything very clearly. I instantly felt better after the initial consultation, and I'm hopeful that the coming sessions will help me improve long-term.The only thing that was a challenge was the forms and the wait time as a new patient. You should give yourself about 2 hours total to be safe. I was informed that any visits after the first one won't take that long.

LOVE Dr. Yoo. He treats your problem, while explaining what he is doing, and he gives you exercises to do at home to correct the issue over time! Plus his operation is flexable, friendly and professional.

Dr. Yoo is awesome. Had some back pain - he took his time in treating me on the first visit and suggested a few follow up visits. When I felt better, he didn't pressure me into continuing treatment, just suggested check-insevery 6 weeks. I will definitely continue with Dr. Yoo.

This was my first chiropractic visit and Dr. Yoo and his staff made me feel extremely welcome and at home. They were friendly, attentive, and professional, and were able to quickly and efficiently diagnose and treat a misaligned rib. Dr. Yoothoroughly explained his diagnosis, and I felt like I learned a lot about my own body from my visit. All in all I am very satisfied and will definitely come back here in the future!

Dr Yoo and his staff were very friendly; however, the treatment was pretty average. I don't think they did anything to make my issue worse, but certainly not among the best chiropractors that I've had. I'd go here again in a pinch, but not necessarily my first choice.

Dr. Yoo is warm and straightforward. His staff is sweet and efficient. However, expect at least a 25-30 minute wait each time, as he is very busy. This may be a dealbreaker in the long run.

Honestly one of the best Doctors I have ever been to. His staff was lovely and so was he. He really talked me through what he was going to do for my treatment and why. He also sat face to faceto get my history (and was not just typing away on a computer). He also told me how to help my condition at home, and was honest that I only needed to come back for a couple more treatments and could manage the rest at home (great quality in a DR). Highly suggest going to him.

The front desk staff/ nurses are super sweet, very accommodating and attentive. I did have to wait around 30 min to see the doctor after my appointment time, but that's fairly common when visiting a doctor's office, so I allowed forthe extra time. Dr. Yoo was very thorough in examining, explaining my condition and coming up with a game plan for treatment in a relatively short time frame. My first appointment was great and am looking forward to the next couple weeks of treatment to help alleviate this back pain.

I've had lower back issues for awhile now which was always aggravated by lifting weights. My condition had gotten so bad that working out became nearly impossible when I finally decided to try a chiropractor again (I previously had a verynegative experience). Dr. Yoo listened carefully, ran a series of tests and was able to diagnose my issue and formulate a plan. After seeing him a few weeks, I noticed immediate improvement and was able to go back to the gym full force (I was able to go after a week but had to be lighter on weights). What I liked most about Dr. Yoo is that he had a timeline and said from the ge-tgo that he didn't want me to have to keep coming back to the office. He gave me a plan that made me independent and it actually worked. I'm very grateful since I have tried multiple other treatments and this is the only thing that worked.

Dr. Yoo was very direct and helpful. His goal seems to be to help you feel better before you leave his office, and then to develop a plan by which you will find lasting improvement. What more could you want in a doctor?

Dr. Yoo was very attentive and courteous. He took ample time to explain things and provided me with charts and information on stretches I could do at home to help with my back pain. Unlike some Chiropractors, he did not insistthat I needed to come back and see him weekly or more. Instead, he suggested that I practice the stretches he taught me and come in for an adjustment when I was experience pain or tightness. His support staff were very efficient and helpful. I highly recommend!!!
