Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

Appointments are scheduled months in advance. Dr. office calls on a pretty regular basis to reschedule on their side. And then I have to reschedule months later because they have no appointments near the original appt. date/time that I can make. Thus a 6 month follow up may not happen for 9+ months.

Dr. Yun is one of the finest doctors I have been to. most dermatologists have evolved into "cash" injectibles and cosmetic procedures and do not care about your skin health. Dr. Yun takes one in full body skin checks and truly cares. Everyone raves about her! it's difficult to get an appointment but worth the wait.

Although she was knowledgeable, I felt like she was rushing through my examination because she was giving me 10 minutes. She spent more time talking in general and less time actually looking at my skin condition other then telling me that my eczema will never be cured. [...]

I have been a patient for 2years at this clinic and never had a problem until this last visit. I was concerned about a mole on my chest that I thought looked funny and I wanted to get a biopsy of it. Dr Yun was so rude and condescending to me because she didn't agree with me. I was absolutely shocked at her behavior, she told me that I was being aggressive all because I asked for a mole to be removed. My past visits with her have been fine just don't ask her to remove anything that she doesn't suggest.Sometimes patients just have a gut feeling about something, turns out that my gut feeling was right as I need to have the mole completely removed due to an abnormal growth.

Aa a dermatologist, I don't need to see Dr. Yun often for routine exams. The only difficulty is f an appointment needs to be rescheduled it seems like there is nothing available for another 6 weeks. So I just hope there's nothing that causes me to need to change my appointment.

Dr Yun does an excellent complete skin exam!

Dr. Yun had to call me back a week after my biopsy to give me some not so good news. The way she explained everything to me was done in a very caring, professional way. She wanted to be sure I understood everything and asked several times if I had any questions for her.
