My goal is to help patients best improve their endocrine related health, utilizing proven methods, the latest research, and the newest equipment.
I am Dr. Vivienne Yoon, the lead physician for Endocrinology Specialists of McKinney. I was born in Canada, and raised in Brookshire, TX, a small suburb just west of Houston. I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Baylor University in 2000. Then I earned my medical degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. I completed my internal medicine residency at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in 2009. In June 2012, I completed my three-year endocrine fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
With my training, I look forward to helping all patients with endocrine related issues. Please contact me today to schedule an appointment!
In the last few years, I have completed recent research articles that have been published in peer-reviewed journals, created, and gave poster and oral presentations.

Our clinic utilizes the Press Ganey Satisfaction Survey. Patients are randomly selected to receive a paper or an electronic survey via email within a few days of their appointment. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide comments regarding specific aspects of care. We use this feedback to improve all aspects of the clinic experience. Some recent reviews shown below.
