I was very impressed, as a new patient, with the ease of making an appointment and the advice of a thoughtful doctor. I wud I could find an internist as compassionate and available as Dr. Tyoun. I felt I was in the best hands with a competent physician.
Doc was nice. Rehab facilities.
I feel like Dr. Tayoun really listened to my concerns and put me at ease.
Quick quick quick!!! Wasn't in the waiting room even 5 minutes, and I was early. Stitch Removal was fast and efficient. Dr. Has great patient manner.
I could not be been more satisfied with the level of care I received from Dr. Tayoun and the staff. My appointment was scheduled by my primary physician and was extremely timely. Dr. Tayoun and the staff put me at ease with what I consider “uncomfortable” circumstances, and he took the time to explain everything to me in a way that I could understand and offered a number of preventative measures I could take in the future.
Dr Tayoun was very friendly and willing to listen to me and answer my questions.
