Thomas Youm, MD - Testimonials
My initial surgery for right rotator cuff repair by a Doctor in Long Island was not successful. In fact, it was quite a problem. Dr. Youm ordered an MRI and reported he was unsure if it was repairable as the blood supply and tissue were poor. But, somehow he had the skill to repair it. Eventually, I needed repair of the left rotator cuff and the experience was wonderful and repair was successful. Thank you Dr. Youm! Dr. Youm is not only skilled providing quality care – he is kind, a good listener and spends time explaining effectively any concerns you have and offering suggestion that have always provided resolutions. I would say, and, in fact, have told many friends and family members about the wonderful care Dr. Youm provides – he is a “True Gem” of a Doctor and a wonderful person. I have told him several times that his parents have done a great job raising him to be such a fine person. His office staff have always been kind and patient and helpful – and his physician assistant is included in this comment.
After hip arthroscopy by Dr. Youm, I am able to do all the activities I enjoy without pain. Dr. Youm cares about each individual patient. He provided a correct diagnosis and the surgery worked! I would recommend Dr. Youm.
Dr. Youm performed hip arthroscopy on me and it helped me tremendously! It brought back the normal every day use of my hip. It’s those daily quality of life tasks that made the surgery worthwhile. What stands out about Dr. Youm is the overall quality of care and his patience to answer all my questions prior to and after the surgery…and I had a lot of questions. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Youm!
I would highly recommend Dr. Youm, and have, as my hip feels better than it had in years. Before surery, I was in constant pain. It hurt to get out of bed in the morning and walk across the floor. A year out, pain and stiffness is all but gone and I’ve returned to normal physical activities that I had put on the backburner. The post-operative care has been helpful and informative.
The shoulder surgery by Dr. Youm was the best thing I ever did. Before the surgery, I was in pain 24/7. And also, I was not able to sleep, not able to lift heavy objects, or even light weights in the gym. I have never met a more caring and attentive doctor (surgeon) than Dr. Youm. He listens as well as gives advice and explained everything that happened in laymens terms. He is also very easy to talk to and joke with. Go (run!) to Dr. Youm. He is the best doctor!
