Dr. Ken Park is a very caring Doctor and surgeon. He evaluates your situation carefully with attentive listening to your issues.

Outstanding - in and out in 30 minutes. He was very thorough explained my problem went over x-rays with me and took a conservative approach - I was facing surgery and elected to get second opinion from Dr. Park - so glad I did - I walked out with a potential solution that I believe is going to work. Highly recommend Dr. Park!

Dr. Park is very kind and gentle. I love that you don't feel rushed when you are with him. Highly recommend.
Everyone in the office was very nice and helpful, they made everything quite easy for a new patient. Dr. Park is a very nice man, made me feel more comfortable with what was going on with my knee. Got a cortisone shot and barely felt it. He has a great bedside manner
Always pleasant. I recommended to my co-workers, friends who has similar issue I had. For a year, I suffered by being misdiagnosed by podiatrist. Dr. Park found the real issue in two minutes when he saw my MRI record. My search is over. He is the best for me!
This is our 1st time @ this office, Showed up 40 mins early & when we were called in to room the nurse & staff was just rushing to get us in the room. It took so long that we had to go back & forth into the waiting room lobby to drink from a water fountain. Which then took about an hours til the Dr. Parks came in and spent about 12-15 min discussing the X-rays and recommendation. The nurse & staff seemed very frustrated & overwhelmed with the hectic office surroundings that it affected the courtesy & being polite even after we thanked them every chance or as they were helping us. "But NO thank you or your welcome out of the staff or nurse." Leaves doubt of the kind of service to expect in the future.
Only problem was the office didn't take all the paperwork I filled out on line. Had to do it all over again.
Dr. Kenneth Park is one of the best doctors that I have ever seen. He is very respectful and courteous. He's very positive and gives his patient encouragement. His smile is warm and calming. This visit was my followup visit to discuss my MRI results. He actually showed me the film from my MRI and explained to me in detail what was causing the problem. I would highly recommend Dr. Park.
Kenneth Park was one of the most accommodating, attentive, and all around pleasant MD's I have ever seen. This was my first time at his facilities, but he treated me as though I were a long term patient. My appointment was prompt, professional, and informative.
