Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Dr. Yoo is the second chiropractor I've seen recently and I was very happy with the visit. He explained to me exactly what was causing my back pain and laid out a detailed and holistic treatment plan. He always checked in to make sure I understood each of the steps. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Yoo is excellent, I always leave feeling better and encouraged that he provides effective treatment plans.
Dr. Won Yoo is extremely knowledgable. I trust him completely with my condition. I can sense that he really knows what he is doing with my joints and spine.
I was in and out in a good amount of time. My back feels so much better!
He is very nice and professional, explained everything about your situation and keep ask you if you have any questions.
Doc Woo Yoo was very well knowledgeable , Professional and well trained. i like the therapy which he has given to me. I hope i will get relief soon
Dr. Yoo was very thorough and attentive. He listened to my issues and after a few tests had a diagnosis as well as a treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable and able to explain things clearly. His office staff is very kind and very efficient!
He is very professional, listens attentively and works to create a health plan that will get you back on your feet in no time.
Professional & made his diagnosis relatable.
First chiropractic visit and I felt very comfortable and the treatment helped with my back pain.
Wonderful visit, great team!
Amazingly talented! Very polite and thorough. Will be going again.
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-ins every 6 weeks. I will definitely continue with Dr. Yoo.
Very good to the point doctor
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. Yoo thoroughly 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!
Knows what he is doing - familiar with accident injuries - wish I saw him earlier! :)
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.
Just Perfect ! Took perfect care of me
Knowledgeable chiropractor. Friendly and effective.
Very friendly and knowledgeable. One of the best chiropractors I have been to
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 face to 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 for the 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.
It is a great practitioner. He knows really well what he is doing. He takes time to explain and to examine you, also is willing to answer all questions and concerns you have.
Dr Won is the best doctor ! He is amazing and nice ! Help me a lot, I was in car accident, other doctor would like to accept me! But Dr Won would like to help me. More important, Dr doctor is super cool when he heals me. Because of car accident, I hurt my shoulder and waist, after he help me, my shoulder and waist feel better that before! I really love that hospital!
He took the time to explain what he diagnosed and respond to questions.
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 very negative 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.
The man knows what he's doing, he good!!!
Very competent, gave me a coherent plan to address the issues he discovered in his examination. I'm quite pleased with the program.
I was impressed in every way!!! Unfortunately, I lost some ground by the time I drove home but now that I've taken to my bed as directed, I'll feel better.
My first appointment with Dr. Yoo went very well. I was impressed with the time he took to understand my concerns, to evaluate my condition, and to explain his impressions. He is knowledgeable and compassionate and I am confident that my condition will improve under his care.
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?
I've been to a lot of chiropractic professionals and dr won yoo by far spend the most time with you and actually tried to fix you for good as opposed to just maintaining your customer loyalty ie. Ensuring you have to come back. Really like him.
Shares valuable knowledge about what he is doing, and its purpose.
He is excellent!!
I really recommend here! Dr. Won Yoo was so nice. I was treated my ankle. He checked my ankle and nicely explained the problem.
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 insist that 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!!!
Highly recommended. Very thorough and incredibly helpful. I also appreciate his patience with me as I was not the most punctual.
Curtious, professional, and got rid of my neck pain on the first visit.
I had a easamt visit with Dr. You. He was professional and courteous as were his staff.
Dr. Yoo is great - my neck/back are significantly better, and he and his office are very flexible with regards to changing my appointment given my crazy work schedule.
I only had one session (diagnosis + treatment) today so I can't really comment on care efficacy, but Dr. Won Yoo was very professional, competent, and helpful. I have to mention that his assistant and the lady at the reception were not really up in the same league, though. For example, I had to explain my symptoms to his assistant once and then to go over them again afterwards with Dr. Won Yoo, which was a bit inefficient. Pricing is a bit steep too as my insurance plan do not cover chiropractor care.
I think I have finally found the doctor who is going to fix my back problems! It has been a long road to get the diagnosis of degenerative disc disease with two herniated discs, and a string of doctors who either didn't believe me because I'm "too young" or had empty promises. Now at 23 I think I will have a solution soon and less pain. I'm very optimistic about this new doctor.
Dr Yoo was thorough in explaining the issue and how he was going to approach the treatment. The staff were also very professional and considerate during my appointments. Highly recommended.
Great visit. It was my first time at a chiropractor. I expressed my nervousness, and Dr. Yoo put me at ease. He gave very thorough explanations and answered all of my questions. I really appreciate it!
I felt he was very professional and would recommend him to others.
Great- I learned a lot!
Dr. Yoo explained the details of chiropracty effectively and discussed exactly what he would be doing to realign my neck and back. I was comfortable the entire time and am looking forward to my next appointment.
I liked Dr. Yoo a lot. He's very professional and explains everything and why he's doing it. The only thing is I didn't like the hard sell for products, almost pressure to book more appointments that I "really needed." Also I was told there was going to be some physical therapy and all I ended up getting was a 15 minute electrode back treatment after the initial adjustment. This was the reason why they charge another $40 on top of my co-pay. Not sure this is worth it. I would understand if there was more consultation or discussion/therapy about specific exercises - which I consider physical therapy. I understand they have to make a living but I always feel suspicious when I'm told I have to book appointments so fast on my very first visit.
My first visit to the chiropractor and I couldn't have picked a nicer one. I was a little nervous but dr Yoo was professional and really took his time to explain things to me. He realigned seven of my vertebrae and I feel much better now!
He cures you! I don't know how he does it. His staff is wonderful, too.
Outstanding, very thourough. I am most impressed AND feel great!
Extremely pushy. He became visibly irritated when I advised him that I was seeking treatment through an *actual* doctor, in addition to his practice. Frankly, I don't recommend him. I saw him three times and he was less professional each time.
He has cured my back and neck problems, my migraines and my plantar fasciitis. If something flares up again, a few visits with him and I am so much better!
Dr. Yoo and his staffs were kind and helpful.
The herniated disk in my neck caused me SO much pain, and he was able to realign my neck and provided therapy that got rid of the pain within a week. Very professional, very knowledgeable, prompt, and overall cares about your well being and comfort. I highly recommend this doctor!
Dr. Yoo was fantastic! I explained the pain I was having, he listened and explained what was going on with my joints. He then began to make adjustments and show me exercises I should do at home to reduce the tendonitis and inflammation. Very positive experience.
Great location with huge parking lot and I really appreciate Doctors who have weekend appointments. Dr. Won Yoo was patient, spent time getting to know my concerns and explained what he thought would be the best strategy. Great staff and I will definitely be returning for future adjustments.
Staff was excellent and informative. Made me feel welcome. Dr. Yoo was very pleasant and made me feel comfortable. Informative about my symptoms.
Very professional and thoroughly explained what I could expect during treatment. Highly recommend!
I've only had one appointment with him, but I'm pretty eager to return back for a second appointment tomorrow. Very informative and thorough. He definitely knows what he's doing. My pain was significantly improved after just one visit!
I've never been to a chiropractor before, but after one visit, I am a believer! There's the perfect balance of professionalism and compassion. I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and have been living in awful and constant consuming pain for years. Now, I feel like there's hope again!
