A rare doctor who actually seems to not only have excellent credentials but is kind and personable in manner, but also proves considerate and thoughtful in how he considers you and any variables in whether to prescribe treatment(s). Best doctor I've seen in years.

Exactly what a doctor should be. Find the problem, fix it right away, no need for extra appointments or prescriptions. This doctor fixed what other doctors couldn't in one visit. Highly recommended.

He listened to my husband's concerns and allayed his fears. He explained the treatment and why he was employing it. He made sure we made a follow-up appointment in two weeks time.

He was great with my son, wait time a little over an hour but truly not bad, I would definitely recommend Dr. Kim to any one, and I will most definitely bring my son back here if needed in the future!

Dr.Kim was excellent, and the place was clean too (I went to park ave) I did have to wait a bit, but the receptionist called and gave me a fair warning the day before that I would have to be here for at least an hour. highly recommend.

Dr. Kim was very kind and patient. However, his style is somewhat different than what I am accustomed to. Typically, whether or not I request it, the doctor will dilate and check for potential changes in my prescription (i.e. "Which version is better 1 or 2?" [as he flips through lens options]). Dr. Kim, having been informed by his assistant that (as measured by a simple vision test) my vision was 20/20 while wearing my glasses, didn't perform any further tests. Also, my eyes weren't dilated at any point during my visit. Given Dr. Kim's bedside manner, I trusted his opinion that my prescription was sufficient and that my eyes were in good shape. However, I still felt as though, based on prior experience, the examination was not entirely thorough. Also, the wait was probably the worst I've ever experienced at any doctor's office. My appointment was for 10:30 and I didn't see the doctor until about noon. After an initial exam (at about 11:00-11:15), I waited in a cramped, secluded secondary waiting area. There, many confused elderly patients were huddled, asking each other for information and being given no indication of when they would be seen by a doctor.
