Verified Patient Reviews
Professional, informative & confident.
Dr. Kim is both knowledgeable and practical. I was in good hands (no pun intended).
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.

Doc Kim Rocks!

Dr Kim is excellent. His judgment regarding the necissity of surgery is excellent. He is very responsive to questions.
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.
I believe that he gave me superb advice which, in this case, was NOT to operate on my hand.

Dr. Kim is great. Very helpful and clear when explaining things - highly recommend
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!!

so fast, so professional. would recommend dr kim 100000%
He was a fan of MMA (what got me into his office in the first place) and he caught something that the previous doctor missed on the MRI
Excellent visit, nice guy
Professional and efficient!
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.
Very competent and knowledgeable. Very pleasant. Explained everything and answered all questions without that sense being in a hurry I very highly recommend Dr. Kim for ANY hand problems.
Very professional and kind...and takes his time to explain any questions or concerns..
Dr. Kim was great. So nice and thorough, explained what to expect with treating my injury, and answered all my questions.
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!
His staff is nice and is really caring. Dr. Kim is really professional. He gets straight to the point and provides with information so that you can decide which route of treatment is best suitable for you. highly recommended hand specialist
He was very thorough with his examination and very helpful. He even did x-rays right away to put my mind at ease.
Super knowledgeable and made recommendations that cured the pain in a week or two
Dr. Kim is always so professional, courteous and easy to talk to. Dr. Kim really explains situations clearly, without a pompous or egotistical tone. If I could make him my primary care doctor, I would!
Dr. Kim is an excellent doctor and he is very knowledgeable and professional.
Seems very competent. Appealing easy manner.
Dr. Kim is very professional and clear in his treatment plan.
Unsatisfactory experience from the time of booking until I left the place. Save your time and go to another place. (1) I call and ask if after my initial consultation I can do a radiography and MRI in the same office. I was told - yes. It proves they can only do the consultation and nothing of the others. If I was told that on the phone I would have chosen a different place. (2) Got called the night before that they need to change my appointment because the doctor was busy. From 2:00 to 2:30pm. I agreed. I got here in time for my appointment and waited 50 min before being seen?! What is the use of being on Zoc Doc if you can't be reliable with what you say you do and when you are available? Good luck staying in business with this approach.
How fast he knew what my problem was and he was able to explain in great detail all the treatment options.
Dr. Jaehon Kim is very efficient and professional.
Dr. Kim took the time to explain what was wrong in a way that I could understand. He was patient with me, listening to all my questions and answering them. He had a pleasant manner and was easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend him.
Great physician. Attentitive, compassionate and professional.
Didn't help I was in pain but he told me everything was fine.
Dr. Kim is excellent. He performed minor surgery on my trigger thumb, and it healed well - and quickly. I can now use my thumb normally, although it is still a bit stiff. I expect that will diminish over time.
This Dr was really good. He knew exactly what I had, explained clearly and patiently what I needed and was very informative, A very real doctor... Kind, and nice as well...
Thorough and well-reasoned diagnosis and helpful instructions for care. Long wait because of some insurance issue.
Awesome. He knows his stuff and the diagnosis is excellent.I will go to him again if necessary.Thank you Dr.Kim
I recommend Dr Kim whole heartedly. He was very professional, friendly and took me through all the options as far as my surgery and recovery was concerned.
Great physician. Wonderful bedside manner and takes time to explain things.
Dr. Kim is a great doctor - very nice and easy to talk to. The wait time is long, but he is worth it.
Very nice doctor. Explained in details his diagnosis and preferred treatment plan.
He was EXCELLENT. asked me the right questions, asked me for my opinion, took time to explain ALL options, he even drew a diagram So i could fully understand. He made a cast for me like it was artwork. If i had to go to a doctor i would go to him. I wish ALL doctors were like him.
I liked the doctor a lot. A few logistic issues however: 1) The elevators in this building take forever. Expect to wait a number of minutes. 2) Very little of the info I had pre-filled in ZocDoc made it over to reception. I had to fill out full medical history by hand. 3) Wait time was about 30 minutes.
Dr Kim is very nice. He examined my problem in a timely manner then explained in detailed (simple terms) what the problem was and what the solution is. He answered all my questions. The nurse & medical device technician were very friendly as well. It was a good visit.
