NON DIABETIC NEUROPATHY
Hello I am Dr. Joseph F. Cavon M.D. I am a retired Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon in Santa Ana. In the last 5 years, I have developed neuropathy and fortunately I am not a diabetic so I’m glad it’s idiopathic. The pain was so bad day and night that I’d hoped it did not have to come to them amputating my feet eventually. I have taken all kinds medications you could think of and nothing has worked. Finally, I read in the papers about Dr. Yoo who had a LRX 60 watt laser instead of the 12 watt laser like what most doctors have. I went to another doctor and it did not do me any good because I still had the pain day and night. In any case, after one visit with Dr. Yoo and his LRX 60 laser I noticed a very big difference after one visit. My pain went from a 10 down to a 5 and that is for both pain and numbness. I have gotten to almost feeling the floor again with my feet. My neuropathy is getting better and better and I hope to one day very soon be able to run around the block how I use to. Thanks to the good care of Dr. Yoo and his staff.
DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE ON CERVICAL SPINE
Hello my name is Dr. Reynaldo Landero and I am an Internist Pulmonologist by Craning practicing for the last 45 years. I also teach at USC and White Memorial and I am currently the director of both hospitals. I decided to see Dr. Yoo because of my chronic neck pain and severe left shoulder pain. He diagnosed me with degenerative disease on my cervical spine and left shoulder. He decided that laser treatment and decompression would be beneficial to my chronic pain. Since I have started coming, I have been feeling a lot better in this process. So I would like to say I’m doing better with this treatment. Thank you Dr. Yoo.
DIABETIC PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY
Hello my name is Dac Chu and I am a retired medical doctor holding a license for Physician & Surgeon issued by the Medical Board of California. I have been practicing medicine for more than three decades. I have had diabetes mellitus for more than twelve years with severe peripheral neuropathy. I have tried many medications without any relief. I decided to come and see Dr. Phillip Yoo after hearing of his development for different methods of treatment from a few colleagues. He used the 60 watt LRX laser along with other treatments to help with my condition. Within three months, my numbness level on my hands and feet went from an eight to a three. The frequency of the tingling and muscle cramps used to be a seven but now it has decreased to a three. Furthermore, the pinch in my cervical spine caused me to have pain in my neck and my shoulder, but with the intensity of the treatment Dr. Yoo was giving me, my pain level went from six to a two. I would like to extend my appreciation and gratitude to Dr. Yoo and Dr. Cho for helping me with my peripheral neuropathy as well as, my cervical spine problem. I am also appreciative towards their dedication to patients.
NEUROPATHY W/ PRICKLING PAIN & SHORT STEPS
Hi I’m Gumer Garcia, and I’m a retired general surgeon from Laguna Nigel. I’m in pretty good health except for my neuropathy. I came to know about Dr. Yoo by publications in newspaper. I was very bothered by prickling pain in my feet, my steps were shorter, and I also noticed a change in my sense of balance. Although, I have seen similar doctors in the past I decided to see Dr. Yoo because he combined therapies. Since I’ve started the treatments I believe I have improved very much. My pain has definitely decreased, but I’d really appreciate it if Dr. Yoo can eventually help me with my walking, because I’m not used to taking these short steps. Yet, I have improved nonetheless because I’m now starting to walk indoors with the assistance of my wife. I believe these treatments have helped me, and I hope that if I continue my treatments I will also be better at walking. I’d be extremely grateful to Dr. Yoo if I can eventually get back to walking normally.
NEUROPATHY W/ PAIN & LOSS OF BALANCE
Hello my name is Carla Visnic and I am from Anaheim, CA. I have been a nurse for forty years and work on my feet a lot. I have had severe pain from neuropathy for the last twenty years, and crippling pain for the last year that caused me to lose my balance. I have no feeling in my feet that goes up the anterior portion of my leg. I have been to my primary care physician who has prescribed me with pain medication and referred me to a podiatrist who put me on Lyrica and Cymbalta without any effect. I was also referred to a neurologist that put me on Gabapentin. Then one day, I was researching through the internet and came across Dr. Yoo’s site. I came to his clinic, and after just three clinical trials my pain went from a ten to a six. I have feeling in my feet now after so many years. I am also able to do things that I have not been able to do in years, like exercising! The tingling feeling is almost completely gone and I just feel like a miracle has occured. Thank you Dr. Yoo!
Hi my name is Rose Gomsi and I am a nurse from Santa Ana, CA. I came in with neck pain, low back pain, and sciatica. After fifteen treatments of laser and decompression, my back pain is a zero, my neck pain is a two, and my sciatica is a zero. Now I am able to play tennis with no ill effects to my back or hip. I am really pleased with the treatment and I am so excited that now when I get off work I can make dinner and enjoy it without any pain. Thank you so much Dr. Yoo.
PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY W/ LOSS OF BALANCE
My name is Sharon Orabona and I’m a retired nurse from Fullerton, CA. I was diagnosed 10 years ago with peripheral neuropathy. I had come into Orange County Laser Spine and Neuropathy Center recommended by my physical therapist who had told me that class four lasers were the only thing that he had seen that worked for peripheral neuropathy. After only my first treatment, the immense tingling in my feet had subsided. After the second treatment, I was able to drive myself for the first time in two months! I have to just thank Dr. Yoo and the staff profusely for all they’re doing for me.
PINCHED NERVE, HERNIATED LUMBAR DISC FROM BACK INJURY
My name is Dijon Douphner from Huntington Beach, CA. I’ve always been fairly athletic, loved the outdoors, I played volleyball on a national team. About 6 years ago I had a back injury from a chair that collapsed and since then I’ve had lower back issues, chronic back pain, and inflammation. I have trouble sitting most of the time. I’ve also had a pinched nerve in my neck, so I’ve been researching a lot different avenues for my lower back. I started to do decompression with a chiropractor and physical therapist and that seemed to help a little bit, but it didn’t reduce the pain from sitting. So I pursued into some epidurals and tried that for several years, but that was fairly diagnostic and it only gave me temporary relief. Years later, I did everything I could besides surgery. I ended up coming to OC Spine Laser Institute and I embarked on a journey to see what their lasers could do for me. I’ve only been doing treatments for a couple weeks but I have definitely felt some relief already. I know things are working and I can’t wait to see a full recovery here in a couple weeks or months.
DEGENERATED DISC PAIN LUMBAR
My name is Gary Conrad from Newport Beach, CA. I had my first laser treatment a few days ago for my lower back pain. I was extremely skeptical if the treatment would work. I have tried everything you can think of; epidurals, acupuncture, and chiropractors but nothing ever really worked. I did my first laser treatment, and afterwards there was no pain what so ever. In fact, it actually felt great. When I got off the table the pain was gone, I kept waiting for the pain to return and it has not returned. A lot of people would say that I shuffle when I walk, but ever since the treatment I have not been shuffling. This morning I got up and did not need to take a pain pill. I got in my car drove down here to Dr. Yoo’s office and got out of the vehicle like a normal human being. It’s a miracle!
HERNIATED DISC & TORN SHOULDER
Hi my name is Nettie Gonzalez and I was born in Gallop, New Mexico. I now reside in Los Angeles, CA. I was fine throughout my life until I had a terrible fall that completely threw me off. I had herniated discs as well as, a shoulder that ripped and I had to have surgery. At first, my spine did not bother me but as time passed, it started to give me this excruciating pain. So as any individual would do, I started doctor hopping. Unfortunately, all I kept getting back from these doctors were more and more pain medication. It was like they were taking my wounds and wrapping a bandage over it. One day, I was reading the L.A Times and saw Dr. Phillip Yoo’s personal testimonial on what was going on with his body and decompression and laser treatments helped him. I told my husband that this was a god send. Everything that Dr. Yoo spoke about was the exact same thing that I was going through. So I came to see him for my first session and came off the decompression table feeling so amazing. It was something I have not felt in so long! Then to have the laser done right after the decompression was heaven. My second session was even more amazing, and on the third session I had two decompressions; one on my neck and one on my back. At first, the one on my back felt cold but good. I didn’t realize the cold air was actually needed to combine with the laser because it was so powerful! Let me be the first to say this to all of you out there, who are suffering with the same pain, come and see Dr. Phillip Yoo. His treatments work!!! Thank you Dr. Yoo for helping me rid of all the pain that has been my companion for many years.
LOW BACK PAIN/ SPINAL STENOSIS / FUSED NECK
Hello my name is Terrence Tribbey from Fountain Valley, CA. I was guided here very providentially to receive some decompression and laser treatment with Dr. Phillip Yoo. I have suffered with low back pain, stenosis & vertebral problems for many years because of a birth congenital condition when I was born. I have been to many orthopedic doctors & orthopedic surgeons. I had to have a fusion surgery on my neck where three vertebrates had to be fused because I had problems there. I was told by three surgeons that I will need to have a lumbar surgery for the condition that I have with my lower back. I have been suffering from so much pain issues as well as tingling and numbness. In the past, I tried so many different pain medications to relive the excruciating pain I was feeling. I was fortunate to come & see Dr. Phillip Yoo and his non-invasive laser treatment center. I received decompression on the KDT decompression machine and more importantly I have had laser treatment to my back with the LRX60 watt laser in the affected areas. After just two weeks of treatment, much pain has been alleviated. I am able to get out of bed feeling much better. My physical activity has been increasing, especially cycling. I am hoping that with more of these treatments it will eliminate my long standing chronic back pain. I am so happy to be here with such a professional doctor who is helping a lot of individuals such as my-self. Thank you so much Dr. Phillip Yoo, I feel so fortunate to be a candidate for this treatment.
NEUROPATHY W/ SEVERE LEG SPASMS
Hello my name is Paul Runnels and I am from Westminster, CA. About two to three years ago my family doctor told me I had neuropathy in my legs and feet. My neuropathy started to get worst. One day, I saw an ad in the Orange County Register about a laser treatment. So I decided to pick up the phone and make an appointment. My first treatment felt good, then my second treatment I felt great, and by my third treatment got rid of the severe spasms in my legs & feet. I am feeling so much better now that I told Dr. Yoo when I walked in for my fourth treatment to sign me up. I tell you folks, this laser is doing wonders for my legs and feet. Thank you Dr. Yoo.
Cheryl Welch, Corona, CA
Hello, my name is Cheryl from Corona, CA. I came here to see Dr. Phil because I had pain in my knees. I had previously tried cortisone shots and that was temporary relief for about three to four months. I eventually saw an ad in the LA times so I decided to give Dr. Phil a call. Today is my third day of laser treatment and now I can get and stand up without that excruciating pain in my knee. So only after three treatments, my knees are feeling a lot better.
ARTHRITIS/ SPINAL DEGENERATION/ LOSS OF BALANCE
Hello my name is Shirley Louie and I am from Huntington Beach, CA. I came to see Dr. Yoo because I have arthritis in both ankles, severe pain on my right side, severe balance problems, spinal degeneration, and equal Librium problems that caused me to walk with a walker. After just one treatment I could feel that my back was remarkably better. I had less discomfort, and the pain from my arthritis in my ankle was better. I was able to sleep without taking pain medication. All the other physicians offered me no hope or any improvement to my condition. Dr. Yoo’s laser treatment has helped me considerably and I’m so happy I found him.
DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE/ SCIATICA/ CARPAL TUNNEL
Hi my name is Lee Perlman from Newport Coast, CA. I have been under the care of chiropractors since the age of 15, so that would be 43 years! I have always found chiropractic care to help because I have degenerative disc disease on my right side; I have also had issues with sciatica my whole life. I am always looking for new treatments. One day, as I was reading the O.C. Register, I came across Dr. Phillip Yoo’s ad on lumbar decompression laser treatment. I tried lumbar decompression twice in the last year and it gave me great relief. Hearing that Dr. Yoo combined the decompression and laser, I thought that it should give me even more relief and it has been working very well. In addition to my lumbar problems, I had also developed Carpal Tunnel. Dr. Yoo used the Graston method along with the laser to relieve a tremendous amount pain and after eight treatments, it’s completely gone. It is just like everything else; you have to be consistent with it. As long as you keep coming to your appointments, I find that it will give you relief and I believe it is curative. I am extremely happy and very impressed! Thank you Dr. Yoo.
NON DIABETIC NEUROPATHY W/ CRAMPS & BURNING
Howdy, I’m Tony Erickson and I’m a retired Colonial of the U.S. Marines Corps. I came to see Dr. Yoo pretty much as a last resort. My feet were just burning and it felt like I was having shocks throughout my feet. I also had cramps just like the advertisement that you see on TV for diabetes states but I did not have diabetes. I just had burning sensations and sharp pains that kept me from sleeping. After the first treatment, I slept pretty well that night. I am convinced we have found the source of the problem. Thank you Dr. Yoo! I look forward to having more treatments.
NEUROPATHY W/ TINGLING & NUMBNESS FOR YEARS W/ NO ANSWER
My name is Lowell and I’m from Tustin, CA. I’m a retired farmer and since I came to Orange County from Monterey County I continued working for the Irvine Company and put in there system for vegetable growing. I’ve been growing vegetables for 22 years before I retired. Somewhere along the line, I started to develop this neuropathy, which I didn’t know anything about until my podiatrists told me what it was. I thought that maybe being on my feet all my life that’s probably what caused it. I thought I’d get used to the numbness and tingling, but up until this point I haven’t. There has been a huge improvement with in tingling in my legs since I’ve started this laser treatment. After suffering from this for such a long time with no relief, I’m sure that this experience has definitely improved my symptoms. Thank you Dr. Yoo.
PAINFUL SCIATICA AFTER CHIROPRACTIC & ACUPINCTURIST CARE
Hi my name is Lynn, and I’m from Irvine, CA. I heard of Dr. Phil from the Orange County Register. I’ve done chiropractic visits and acupuncturist visits before for my sciatica, which would be at 9 or 10 on a pain level normally. The chiropractic and acupuncture care were somewhat helpful, but after trying 3 laser treatments with Dr. Phil, I am now able to get up in the morning and resume with my normal routines, and I finally have hope. Thank You Dr. Phil.
DIABETIC NEUROPATHY & SEVERE EDEMA ON THE VERGE OF LEG AMPUTATION
Hi, my name is Walter Cox and I’ve been a neuropathy patient for about ten years, and when I met Dr. Yoo my life changed. He didn’t think he could do anything for me at first but he told me that he’d give me three treatments and let me know whether or not he could help me. So right there I was impressed by the doctor. My son-in-law, an administrative coordinator at Kaiser, on the other hand is a huge skeptic. So Dr. Yoo came to the old folk’s home to meet with my son-in-law and my daughter, a physical therapist at Kaiser for about 28 years. After they talked to each other, my son-in-law and my daughter were firm believers in what the laser had done for my legs, especially after they took a look at my legs after just one treatment. Even my own home health care doctor was impressed by the change and wanted to speak to Dr. Yoo immediately. Everyone that I’ve talked to and have seen my legs were extremely impressed and couldn’t believe it. It’s been a terrific change and I owe it all to Dr. Yoo for everything he’s done for me.
