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 doctorswould 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!
