I chose Dr. Kim because of his medical credentials and the reviews on this website. He lived up to my expectations in both ways and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. He was very professional, yet extremely nice. Glad I chose him for my minor hand issue - he knew what it was in a manner of seconds. Will return if I need to see him again.

The staff were professional and the environment was pleasant. Dr. Kim was great however, he was not able to diagnose my condition after waiting for more than an hour. I'm sure it was a busy day for him.

Doctor was nice but I had to create a scene in office in order to get brought back to exam room after I over 90 minutes waiting. I had to demand someone gin back and see why I wasn't being seen. They told me so doc caused extreme delays. How sad that this is offered as an option for setting up appointment ts yet it doesn't work!!

While Dr. Kim was extremely nice and informative, unfortunately found his staff although nice, not informative as to giving me information required for a procedure. Never had any kind of out-patient procedures in the past and so I was clueless. My issue was as I was leaving his office, I was not informed nor instructed as to what I had to do pre-procedure. I was 'nickel & dimed' so to speak as to steps required after the fact. Every time I spoke to someone at his office I was then informed that something else was required. Got so frustrated that I decided not to forego further with his services.

Dr. Kim is an amazing doctor! He is an incredibly skilled surgeon, but beyond that he is really concerned with making sure that the treatment for any injuries is appropriate and the best possible course of action. A lot of doctors would immediately look at something and want to operate right away. Dr. Kim is much more interested in doing what is best for the patient depending on the situation; he is methodical and makes sure his patients are as informed about the pros and cons of procedures and recoveries as possible. He's the best!
