    Dr. Korn ishares his expertise freely and kindly. His explanations were clear and he spoke displaying a caring attitude and offering treatment options. He also showed flexibility when nearing the end of the visit I expressed interest in trying a treatment option that was not surgically. I appreciate his willingness to try a more conservative treatment as a start.

    I've had multiple visits with doctor korn over the years and have always found him to be the utmost professional. He has always explained to things very clearly and has always shown the greatest concern. I have no problem driving more than 5 hours to see him!

    This experience with Dr. Korn was much better than my first. The communication both ways was better and I felt the doctor listened more and showed more concern. He was also thorough and engaged when we talked about options and next steps. - only a good for likelihood of recommending because of the initial first visit.

    My visit with Dr. Korn was worth the wait. A very kind and professional doctor. This visit was very informative and Dr. Korn enlightened me about my medical concerns.

    The provider was also very indifferent to my concerns. He wasn't rude. But indifferent. Also he was unprepared because he had not looked at my file. He quickly looked at my ultrasound during my visit and I don't believe he gave It sufficient study. I was surprised that I was not asked if I wanted a chaperone during my exam. Every other office I have been to I have been offered a chaperone. One of the concerns that I had a recurrent pain the doctor could not replicate and then dismissed it. Gyn exams are done in one position perhaps for the everyone's dignity - however when I have a concern about pain during intercourse in other than on my back positions this might warrant different methods to Identify the problem. I had to ask him several times to provide me with some follow up action. He reluctantly put in an additional referral. I believe he was inappropriately dismissive to my complaint. I saw that the doctor was very knowledgeable but lacked a bedside manner that showed an interest in helping me address my concerns. To speak on gyn issues is very embarrassing / humiliating and he did very little to make the conversation easier. Another indication that this doctor was not suitable for me was when he first talked about a procedure that would remove my uterus and cervix. He said it would not affect my hormones. Only when I asked further questions about the procedure did he explain that the procedure could likely bring about early menopause. That is a significant concern which he didn't seem to care about or feel the need to voluntarily inform me about. Also just a superficial comment: the wearing of scrubs with out an undershirt always seems to be rather awkward. Maybe this is an old school manner. But I think that undergarments should be required of males and females. I don't need to see the doctor's chest hair. It's not a field hospital.I did have a few good things to say. I appreciate that the doctor did speak clearly and in term

    Dr. Korn is among the "best" healthcare professionals around -- always immensely supportive kind and knowledge-sharing.

    They never followed up on my original concerns which was having pain during sex however the provider did address the additional concern of my bladder pain. When they do this it creates a dynamic of sexual function as not being seen as important.

    Dr. Korn provides excellent medical care in a very caring way. He is extremely personable never talks down to me and is good about seeing patients in a timely manner. He personifies the ideal doctor.
