Ratings for Dr. Kyudong Uhm
I have seen Dr Uhm about 10 times over the past years for CLL. He just stopped me from having a scheduled Biopsy for a Lymphoma Diagnosis, saying what the PET SCAN showed is NORMAL. I feel badly for the people who had issues, but for me, he is brilliant and extremely caring. Don't make the mistake of comparing a Doctor born in Korea, from one that is a slick NYC, or LA doctor. His purpose is not to entertain. When I had a serious question, and he was out of the office, he returned my call in LESS THAN 10 MINUTES. What doctor that you went to, ever did that?
Worse doctor I have ever met! Gave my mother 6months & did chemo once a month! Thank god we got a second opinion cause it got her a year&half extra. This doc just watchs his patience a die, I highly recommend everyone see someone else more experienced!
Very rude doctor! Called me stupid because he couldn't bill my father for blood tests because he was still in a rehabilitation facility. He refused to perform my fathers follow up hospital stay visit that he suggested on my father release papers from saint Mary's hospital. The worst doctors visit I've ever experience.
Dr. Uhm treated my father. I accompanied visits with my father. Dr. Uhm always seemed rush and had one foot out the door while talking to us. He insisted my father had a kidney problem when he did not. My father was sick for 6 months and Dr. Uhm kept telling him it was his kidneys. The last visit we had, I said to the doctor, it's not his kidnies he is getting worse. He said just give me one more month. Well my father died less than a month later. The problem was my father's heart, but noone caught it. Dr. Uhm may have been a good doctor years ago, but in my opinion he has taken on too many patients and does not spend enough time on each one. Every time I called to speak to him, you always got his office staff. I would not recommend him to anyone. I am not blaming him for my father's death, but I definitely think he contributed to it.
