Dr. Yun

"Dr. Yun has excellent bedside manner. He listens to your concerns and takes care of them. I highly recommend him. Very easy to talk to and understand his plan."

-- Connie DeWald, Tricuspid Valve, Valve Replacement, 10/05/2020

"Dr. Yun is an excellent surgeon. I had an aortic valve replacement and Mitral valve repair. My surgery was more complicated than expected. Dr Yun called in another specialist to complete my surgery. I would not be here today if it were not for Dr. Yun. Dr Yun was always around in the morning to check on me and let me know what he wanted to happen during the day in order to get me one step closer to getting out of the ICU and into a regular room. He even checked on me after I left the ICU. I would recommend Dr. Yun for anyone. He is the best!!"
