The woman at the front was lovely and efficient. Dr. Kim was very friendly, took his time hearing out my casehistory, and asked questions to get a thorough understanding of my situation. He did not rush me at all and was calm, patient, and understanding. At the end of the visit he clearly explained his goals and recommendations, while also explaining reasons he did not choose alternative options based on my case. Great doctor, clean office, great staff.

Probably the best doctor I’ve ever seen in NYC, period. No rush, caring, smart, took the time to explain everything, answered even stupid questions I had, and cornered the case quickly with conclusive evidence and no guesswork. I would give him six stars if I could.
