Verified Patient Reviews
She is a great doctor.
As a first time patient I had a very pleasant experience. Dr. Kim was very kind, attentive and professional. All the other medical assistants did a great job too. I felt at ease the whole time, highly recommended!
First time here and it was wonderful. The entire staff was very nice, and extremely efficient. Dr. Kim is lovely and asked me many questions in order to try to get to know not only my medical history, but me better personally as well. I really enjoyed the experience and I will be coming back.
Dr. Kim is super kind and professional. I highly recommend!
I loved Dr. Kim, but her medical assistants were very lacking in bedside manner. Betty was very curt and didn’t explain to me what tests she was doing - which would have been appreciated as a first time patient. Then the other one (didn’t catch her name) didn’t knock before coming in the examination room, so I didn’t have time to get fully dressed out of the gown before she opened the door in full view of the lobby. I did appreciate getting in and out of the office in a very timely manner though - there was very little wait time either in the lobby or the examination room. No complaints about Dr. Kim herself.
Dr. Kim is knowledgeable and personable! It was my first visit and she made me feel as though she has been my primary care for many years.
She was great
Dr. Kim lacks any sort of bedside manner and spent most of our appointment berating me for not taking the medication I was there to get prescribed. She then prescribed me a different medication then the one we discussed without consulting me. If getting treatment based on your needs is what you want or if you like a doctor who feels like they're at all on your side then Dr. Kim isn't the doctor for you.
She was excellent - took her time and thoroughly reviewed my health history with me making sure she understood it all. I trusted her not to dismiss my worries and instead to help me get to the bottom of my challenges. Excellent first visit.
I'm so happy that I found Dr. Kim on ZocDoc! Clean office, saw me quickly, and very friendly.
She was great, professional, knowledgeable, assuring, thorough and lovely manner
While I did end up waiting quite a bit, my first appointment with Dr. Kim let me feeling very listened to and understood, which is rare. I can imagine part of the reason for the wait is that Dr. Kim is very thorough in taking medical history and listening to issues and concerns. I would recommend her as a primary care doctor based on my first visit.
She was very cordial and asked many questions. Very thorough and office was very clean.

Dr. Karen Kim is a fantastic doctor. She makes the time to discuss your concerns and make her own recommendations on next steps. To find a talented and kind doctor is not an easy thing to do and I feel lucky to have found her.

It was a fantastic visit! Dr. Kim was very pleasant, and knowledgable, and answered my various inquiries with patience and kindness. I definitely recommend her!
She is excellent! She takes her time and listen to what you have to say, you never feel rushed.
She does not behave in a professional unjudgmental manner. I told her the specific reason why I did time in prison and she rejected me as a patient because of this. Who are doctors to judge their patients? That is left up to God.
She is kind, considerate, and excellent at her job. Any patient would be lucky to have her.
She is a wonderful doctor.
She explained everything to me clearly and was friendly.
She always listen to my concerns and I don't feel rush. Best doctor to have in your side.
Everything was generally OK, however, it seemed like the staff was not properly prepared for an early morning appointment. Despite that I have no complaints.
I found Dr. Kim and the whole staff really wonderful. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and to make sure I got an appointment for my ultra sound the next day, despite it being so close to Christmas. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Excellent doctor. Dr. Kim was easy to talk to, attentive and very kindly answered any and all of my questions.
She's a very caring, helpful and thorough professional. I can't wait to go back!
Friendly staff, clean rooms, and good communication. A+! Finally a great doctors office I want to keep for years.
Transferring doctors is usually a black hole of complications. Dr. Kim makes it painless. She fixed an error on my prescription within five minutes, and the office called me immediately after I (quite embarrassingly) left my credit card on the receptionist's desk. Dr. Kim is very efficient and her staff is trustworthy.
The doctor and staff were wonderful! Doctor was very pleasant.
Very efficient and extremely helpful.
