Explanation (4/5)
The need for compliance with Covid 19 restrictions meant that the consultation probably had less physical investigation than would normally happen. The Patient has Alzheimers, which further complicates options open, e.g. MRI scan.

Mr Yoon has always shown me kindness and understanding during the 4 consultations and 2 nerve block procedures I have had so far with him. He is always very professional and knowledgeable. Mr Yoon has explained my condition to me medically and been able and willing to answer fully my follow up questions. Mr Yoon also has the ability to translate what is a complicated medical subject into what the non-medical layman can understand.

He is very understanding regarding the pain I have had been living with over a number of years and helped me understand and explain were the pain is coming from.

I attended the Spire Nottingham after having a Zoom consultation with Mr Yoon. He performed a diagnostic nerve block and was fantastically caring and professional throughout. Mr Yoon visited my room to explain everything prior to the procedure, talked me through the injections whilst in the treatment room and then came to discuss the ways forward afterwards. I cannot fault his care and I would thoroughly recommend him. His secretary is very supportive and extremely responsive.

Mr Yoons private secretary Mrs sale, set up the appointment with Mr Yoon. She ensured that all the pain and problem documentation was sent out prior to seeing Mr Yoon. I completed the information along with medical insurance details and sent it back to her prior to my consultation. As a result when I came for my appointment at the Spire Nottingham, Mr Yoon has all the prerequisite information to ask me in detail about my back problem. He also listened carefully and recorded all the salient details prior to him conducting a through physical examination. He also was able to refer to the notes from my previous back operations which prompted him to test other areas associated with my back pain. From this he determined that my pain could well have been coming from my hip. As a result he arranged for an on the spot X-RAY and after receiving the radiologists report he wrote detailed clinic note explaining the problem, which turned out to be my hip, to my GP and myself. Mr Yoon has subsequently referred me onto Mr Manktelow a hip specialist to ensure my medical problem is in the best possible hands.

Despite the difficulties of speaking via zoom (on our part!) we were very impressed with the care and patience Mr Yoon took when explaining the MRI images, pain relief options and next steps. We really appreciated his open and direct approach and were left feeling 100% confident with him proving treatment and potential surgical intervention in the future.

MR Yoon is one of the most reassuring doctors. I was in extreme pain when I saw him first, he explained that he could help, within 3 weeks he had operated. He is skilful and extremely encouraging. The experience from Spire hospital was second to none, I thought I was Ina 5 star hotel with a personal carer. I recently saw Mr Yoon for a follow up appointment he explained what he had done, advised on the way forward and how long my recovery period would be, I feel confident for the future. Before I saw Mr Yoon I had severe spinal stenosis, could hardly walk now, since the operation I no longer walk with either a stick or crutch. In my rush to comment, I forgot to include Mr Yoon's great team. Firstly Bob who was so reassuring. Secondly his secretary Suzanne who was so helpful, she was recovering from an operation herself but was working from her bed. I really appreciated our chats she is so professional and very knowledgable. I would recommend Mr Yoon unreservedly, oh I forgot a thoroughly nice person.
