Office staff outstanding. I was just seated in the examination room and there was a tap on the door. I swear I didn't have time to open my People mag and in stepped Doc. Kim. He was pleasant, extended his hand,introduced himself (as physicians should be often don't) and proceeded to examine, explain and talk about treatment plan. Highly recommend..
