Verified Patient Reviews
Feel lucky to have found him and the practice.
Outstanding Physician and great communication skills.
I hadn't seen Dr. Kim for several years. Still he remembered me and my problems. He had ideas for treating my hypertension and asked me to come back in two weeks, so we could determine if the rx drugs he ordered were working.
Dr. Kim was very thorough, which is not something I could say about a lot of doctors these days. I could tell he actually cared for my well being. He was nice, patient, and informative. Highly recommended!

Dr. Kim is attentive, relatable, and avoids making blanket statements or endorsing health fads. He quickly and fully answered my questions and had an excellent bedside manner. His staff were all considerate, polite, and fast.
I was very satisfied with my first visit to Dr. Kim. I had not seen a doctor is quite some time and was a bit nervous about the appointment. The whole experience was wonderful. From the staff, to the facilities, to the doctor himself. I'm very glad I chose Dr. Kim as my PCP and would recommend him to anyone!
Very helpful. Professional
Very knowledgable, caring and professional.
Dr. Kim was very informative and attentive to my needs and questions.
Dr. Kim takes a moment each visit to converse and get to know you, so each successive visit gets more friendly and with a better understanding of your health. Also, the office is pretty efficient: I spend the least amount of time waiting for the doctor, waiting to pay, waiting for nurses to perform services, etc., than I ever did with previous doctors.
Dr Kim is a caring doctor and takes the time to talk about any questions or concerns you may have.
Dr. Kim is a wonderful doctor. This was a follow up visit for a couple of issues at my annual checkup. Dr. Kim spent just as much time with me discussing how to address my health issues as he did at the initial visit. He's thoughtful, caring, smart and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
I highly recommend Dr. Kim. Go see him and you will know why :) .
Great doctor! He's very thorough and asks lots of questions to make sure he understands the patient. Highly recommend.

Very easy to talk to, engaging, and helpful. I'm happy to have found him as my primary.
I went in for my first annual check up. All the positive reviews that I read here definitely lived up. I recommend Dr. Kim!
This was my first visit with Dr. Kim. I went for an annual physical. He is very thorough and thoughtful, and took the time to discuss and (when necessary) explain approaches to my various medical issues, including high blood pressure, which is a particular "area of interest" for him, as he puts it. He takes his time, and I never felt rushed. I also felt that he addressed each of my concerns seriously. It's so nice to find a PCP in the city like Dr. Kim. The front desk was professional and polite, and the offices are modern, clean and comfortable, which is also a nice benefit.
Great doctor, great staff. Will definitely come again.
Dr. Kim is excellent. Cannot recommend him highly enough.
He was great! So was the staff. They dealt with me through a strange insurance debacle and were courteous, clean, and kind. Highly recommend!
Michael is very attentive and makes a point to get to know me personally as well as my family. I felt he took the time to ask questions and understand the whole picture of my health. I would highly recommend him.

Yes - Dr. Kim is very friendly, very knowledgable and awesome to work with.
I've finally found my primary care physician! I would definitely recommend Dr. Kim to a friend.
great experience, wonderful customer service!!
Dr. Kim was professional, respectful, and highly tactful: a quality that I look for in all doctors. He was courteous, cheerful, and gave me all the information I needed and more. Will definitely come back.
He is very professional. Asked the right questions. Easy to share with. And follows up!
1: The nurse was awful...I think she was falling asleep when she was checking my blood pressure...and she kept on saying stuff I did not understand so I asked and then she got irritated 2: Finally the doctor came and started asking me what was his diagnosis last time he saw me. which i think should be there on the chart....he denied things that he said over the last visit. Not cool. 3: He contradicted himself several times and finally made a joke when I started explaining my problem and rolled his eyes. Again not cool. 4: The worst is he kept on asking my medical history when he has access to all of that. 5: My first visit was pretty good. i would say that though
Everything perfect, with the possible exception of the classic rock radio pumped into the waiting area. I could live without ever hearing American Pie again, really.
He was very friendly, asking lots of questions. willing to listen.
Short wait, good recommendations, and honest.
was recommended as a Dermatologist by ZocDoc, but doesn't actually do anything in Dermatology.
I recently moved to the city and I am so happy to have found a new primary care doctor. Dr. Kim and his office staff were wonderful. The office staff were patient and worked with me when I provided the wrong insurance id number. As for Dr. Kim, he is a true professional. He cares about his patients and, as the other reviews noted, he took the time to ask questions to better understand my health and background.. highly recommended.
Dr. Kim was very engaged, and attentive, a genuinely friendly bedside manner. He gave me honest feedback without judgement, and listened to all my questions/concerns. He spent a lot of time on my family/personal history and lifestyle, and seemed to do less routine tests that I remember from previous physicals like and looking in eyes/ears, but it felt pretty thorough. I will be back.
Very friendly and listened to what I had to say even during a physical. I'm going again.
Dr. Kim is the best. Hardly any waiting time, helpful staff, and Dr. Kim is the best--remembers who you are and the things you talked about in your last visit (not just medical stuff, he remembers if you said you were planning a vacation and asks you how it went, etc.), and he patiently helps you work through any medical concerns you are experiencing. He explains everything in great detail so you fully understand what is going on, and you always feel like you're in good hands. Highly recommend!
Really good visit with no hassles. Was able to get a same-day visit immediately and was in and out with no problems. Highly recommend!
Dr. Kim was very helpful and made sure to take time to go over any concerns
Dr. Kim is very pleasant and shows a good deal of professionalism.
Dr. Kim was professional, friendly, and informative. Even though it was a short appointment I didn't feel rushed and he got to the point while still giving me context. MUCH better than the other PCP I went to this year.
Dr Kim is great. The wait time is short, and he's great at both listening and communicating. It's also convenient that they do things inhouse so I don't have to go to Quest to get labs and stuff done.
the best doctor ive ever had, super friendly and warm. went through my medical history with great detail. didn't feel like i had to be rushed out or anything, as I've experienced in the past with other docs. I HIGHLY recommend Dr.Kim
Highly recommended, best doctor I've ever seen!
Best doctor ever, very friendly and I didn't wait not even 1 minute. beautiful doctor's office.
Dr. Kim was as nice as can be, as was the guy who collectst payment after the appointment. The rest of the staff, on the other hand, was pretty unpleasant--particularly the nurses I interacted with.
He asked all the right questions to really understand my symptoms. He's awesome!
Great patience and inquisitive analytical approach. Not hurried, he is caring and sympathetic. Gives you confidence due to his thorough analysis and compilation of information from inquiry and info sheet. Accepts questions without impatience and provides responses in clear human terms. Glad to find him...
It was fine.. Mission accomplished !
I chose to see Dr. Kim because of he had great ratings and after my visit I can see why! I haven't met a physician this caring and sincere in a long time. A lot of physicians I've met are always haste and almost unthoughtful, but Dr. Kim takes his time and genuinely seems to care about his patient's health. One thing I noticed was that he was attentively listening to what I was saying and that stood out to me. I would definitely recommend others to see Dr. Kim.
It was my first visit to a doctor after moving to New York, found the adress on ZocDoc. As English is not my primary language, it is sometimes more difficult for me to discuss symptoms and be sure to understand the reccomandations. Dr Kim was very nice and made sure everything was clear for me, he additionnaly reccomanded to visit a specialist for my condition and offered to give me the contact details. The nurse (I think her name is Precious) was also very warm and caring. Staff at the entrance is also nice and very "focused". No waiting time. 5 stars!
Dr. Kim's my all-time favorite Doctor.... He's a competent physician and a lovable human being.
While his nurse/assistant is quite rude, Dr. Kim himself is excellent and spends plenty of time with patients fully explaining any conditions and treatments.
Dr Kim patiently listening to my questions and went above and beyond what I had expected. Will be back for sure
He's professional, keen, and personable. I couldn't ask for anything more.
I feel comfortable and confident with Dr. Kim. He has a kind and gentle manner yet is thorough and professional in his delivery of care. I am happy to have found him as my primary care physician.
Very professional! Willing to listen and explains everything. All the other reviews were right. 5 stars for him!
Very friendly and thorough, and I didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes!
Dr. Kim was the first Doctor I visited outside of my Pediatrician and he immediately became my PCP. I am lucky to have found him in NYC.
He is my favorite doctor!
He is awesome! Great bedside manner, very knowledgeable and personable.
I like him and I trust him... I am very happy with my new doc!
Lovely office, kind and helpful staff, and a very personable physician. Dr. Kim patiently listened to everything I was describing, answered all of my questions thoroughly, thoughtfully addressed all my concerns, and did a great job explaining things along the way. Plus he was just very nice and made me feel comfortable, even while getting shots!
This is my first visit with Dr Kim, it was amazing! His staff was very caring and organized! Dr Kim himself was knowledgable and caring.
Knowledgable and personable. Seems like a good doctor. Also, it's a nice office and I didn't have to wait more than about 5 minutes. Everyone was very freindly.
It was fine.
Dr. Kim was very professional and friendly. The office was clean and I was in and out within an hour!
Dr. Kim is the man. So nice, and completely free of any judgement. Business only, but with a very pleasant and laid-back demeanor. I would feel comfortable telling him anything or asking him anything.
He was wonderful, thanks to him!!! Dr. KIM IS GREAT -John
Model of professionalism and strong medical acumen
Dr Kim is a very caring doctor. He always answers my questions and concerns and explains his plan of treatment. I feel confident that I'm in good hands.
He's incredibly friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Best doctor I've seen all my life.
booked on zoc doc and they reschedule me. then when i went the first time was I was 5 minutes late, they made me reschedule. then they rescheduled me and told me the date, 5th of november. when I went they said i was scheduled on the 8th of november...
Dr. Kim is great, I highly recommend him.
I loved everything about my visit and Dr. Kims bedside manner will continue to recommend him.
He was as good as all the other reviewers say he would be. I really loved the visit, highly recommended!
Professional consultation coupled with empathy and practical advice. Highly recommended!!
As per the positive feedback and recommendation of other fellow Zoc Doc'ers, I decided to put my hath in Dr Kim's hands. I am very glad that I did. I found him to eb informative with an excellent bedside manner. He was also very quick with calling me about the results of my lab tests and offering recommendations. I believe I will make him my primary care provider.
great, genuine doctor, felt comfortable with him, great listener, will be back!
I would recommend Dr. Kim. I saw him recently for a routine physical. He was friendly and informative.
It was my first time getting an annual physical exam in New York and the experience was great. I got to the clinic 10 minutes before, which was a good idea because I had to fill out and signed few forms. Then I waited less than 5 minute and was greeted by a nurse. I did not have to wait much during the entire process and Dr. Kim really took the time to talk with me and understand my health condition. I was able to ask all my questions and his answers/explanations were thorough and easy to understand. I enjoyed the appointment and found him very easy to talk to. I would recommend Dr. Kim to everyone.
I went in as a first time patient for a annual physical and Dr. Kim was very professional and knowledgeable! I would highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone!
DR. KIMS OFFICE MADE MY DOCTOR'S VISIT A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. i WAITED FOR 5 MINUTES AND WAS SEEN BY THE DOCTOR SHORTLY THERE AFTER. HE IS PLEASANT AND KIND. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO OTHER PATIENTS. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AND RECOMMENDATION. BEST, JEFFERY
He was very attentive, explained everything, and not rushed. Hands down... My favorite Primary Doctor!
He is the best doctor I have ever met. Great listener and exactly knows why I am sick. Would be great to have him as a primary care doctor!
This was my second visit with Dr. Kim. He made such a great impression on me during my first visit a year ago that I made him my PCP. LOVE him! So personal, patient, and overall kind. I love Dr. Kim and I love his nurse as well! Trust me on this one :)
This guy is DEFINITELY a five star Dr. And I believe this guy might have actually mastered the craft. If you want someone fast and thorough Dr. Kim is the guy to see.
Takes time and listens to your questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim.
Dr. Kim is exceptionally thorough and very thoughtful about his responses to my questions. His philosophy towards my issues were not to prescribe medication, rather it was to provide alternative suggestions first. I did have to wait a little less than 30 minutes in the Dr. Office but I was taken in from the waiting room right away. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kim!
It was great! He listens to your concerns and makes you feel comfortable. The office is clean light and airly. His staff wonderful and professional. Will be back again. Highly recommended
He was great: friendly, knowledgeable, helpful.
Great. Dr Kim was very knowledgeable, explained everything in a concise way, and attended to all my concerns.
Dr Kim really took the time to make me feel comfortable, and as it was my first visit, also get to know me. I would definitely recommend him and feel confident going back that I was receiving top-notch treatment.
He was great! Very friendly, made me very relaxed, and figured out the problem almost immediately! Office staff were also very friendly and helpful. Best doctor experience I've had in NYC.
I went for a general wellness check-up. Dr. Kim was great, he had good recommendations, great bedside manner, was professional, and followed up with a personal phone call in regards to my blood results.
I hate being sick, but I always love to see Dr. Kim. He is very kind and very good listener!
He is very easy to talk to and very helpful.
Dr. Kim took his time with my visit. I didn't feel rushed. He listened to all my concerns and symptoms, answered all my questions with detailed information and approaches to better health. Definitely returning to him as my primary.
I found MD Kim to be a very warm and inviting individual. The comfort level within his office was excellent. However I did feel like my check up was more of a meet and greet rather an evaluation of my current health. My physical consisted of a series of questions, blood sample, and a few light presses around my stomach. I did not feel secure after my physical as I thought the point of a physical was to make sure everything was in working order and there are no signs of any terminal illnesses etc. basically after the physical I felt like I should get another. I didn't feel confident as the appointment primarily was a conversation. I have friends who shared how extensive of a physical they received from their doctor's which they found on ZocDOc and my experience seemed to lack a bit. I will definitely get a referral for my next visit. overall MD KIm seems to be a great person but my health trumps making friends during a doctor visit.
Great doctor, really listens
As always, great doctor. Doesn't jump to prescriptions, really listens.
As an internal medicine physician myself (yes, we still need a primary care doc) I am always impressed when I visit Dr Kim. He has a superb bedside manner, an impressive fund of medical knowledge and he is just a nice guy. Also doesn't hurt that his office runs like clockwork.
Dr. Kim was great working with my client. My client is a Korean speaking gentleman, so it worked out in his favor that Dr. Kim also spoke Korean.
Dr. Kim is very caring, and a good listener.
Appointment was on time and I saw him right away. He answered all of my questions and even had a ton of questions of his own to resolve me issues. he eventually recommended some OTC solutions vs. prescription. We'll see how everything turns out. I have a follow up visit in a few weeks.
Dr. Kim is professional sincere and caring
Knowledgable internalist - provided good recommendations on existing conditions and preventable measures on family history.
compassionate & professional. You can tell he actually cares about his patients.
Very great as always. Easy to talk to.
I was a new patient and I loved that he spent the time to talk to me instead of rushing.
He’s a doctor you want on your side.
Very personable and spends a long time with each patient. I feel like I am getting my money's worth.
I highly recommend Dr. Kim more. He listened patiently, asked excellent follow up questions and explained his reasoning for his conclusions/actions.
Really nice, very patient and thorough, and seems genuinely concerned with how you're feeling.
Dr. Kim takes time to listen to your problems, as well as time to explain what is wrong in great detail. For someone who gets very anxious about going to the doctor's office, this is a plus for me. Definitely recommended!
Extremely kind and understanding. He takes the time in explaining things an has extraordinary patience. I certainly will be using him as my primary care physician and would recommend everyone do the same!
Smart, interested, and genuine, a cut above your average general practitioner... I definitely found my doctor in NYC!
Doctor Kim is probably the most sincere physician I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. You can tell that he cares about his patients and with a wealth of knowledge is extremely helpful in determining all ailments. Will definitely be returning and keeping him as my PCP.
I'm a physician myself - and i appreciate that my entire experience at the office was what i would strive for in my own patients.
He's thorough, understanding, and just overall amazing!
Awesome - Michael seemed very engaged, and was also eager to go over my medical history with me to see if there was something that came up in the past that was never really fully resolved.
Dr. Kim is a mega cool, friendly, knowledgeable doctor. I'm so thrilled to call him our primary care doctor after searching for the last 5 years.
Dr. Kim is fantastic!!! He is very attentive, caring, and intelligent. I had several health concerns and he listened to each one of them very patiently. He also personally called me to follow-up with me about my medical test results. I highly recommend Dr. Kim.
Dr, Kim was professional and thorough. He appears knowledgeable and offered explanations in layman's terms without being condescending.
Dr Kim was not only very friendly but very thorough. He took his time and didn't make me feel like I had to give him my long history in 5 minutes. After years of meeting too many "drive-by" doctors, it was a pleasant experience sitting with Dr. Kim. My wait was maybe 5-10 minutes...that's nothing. Even if I had to wait longer, it wouldn't matter because I now know he gives his patients the appropriate amount of time during their visits! The office staff were all nice and friendly. The office is easy to get to and beautiful.
I had a really great first visit with Dr. Kim. He has an incredible bedside manner. He spent a lot of time learning more about me and my medical history.
Dr. Kim was incredibly professional yet warm and friendly. It felt like I had known him for years.
Very smooth and very nice. A bit shy but fine.
Dr. Kim is Awesome! He is so thorough, patient and easy to talk to. He took care of all of my concerns and actually discussed them with me. Unfortunately his kindness and concern is not something that I find to be common practice. It means a lot to me that I now have a doctor that I can trust. Thank you Dr. Kim!
Dr. Kim was very professional, patient, and thorough. I will definitely continue to see him. The wait times, however, were a bit long.
Excellent and thorough.
Very easy to speak with. The best part was going from arrival as a new patient to leaving the office in just 45 minutes.
He was great! Would 100% recommend.
Very responsive to my questions and followed up on my symptoms.
He takes enough time to listen to the patient and with the patient. One of the most kind doctor I've ever see in NYC.
Dr. Kim was awesome, he sat and talked with me for 10-15 minutes before he started any kind of exam. He asked me all sorts of questions about family history, general lifestyle and stress levels, etc. Very personable and made me feel at ease. During our conversation, he talked about the differences between more seasoned medications and the new stuff on the market, admitting that he was more comfortable prescribing medicines that were more tested — which I appreciated.
Seemed knowledgeable and was a very good doctor.
He covered all my concerns thoroughly
Dr. Kim was awesome! I agree with the other reviews posted. Super patient, he listens, did not rush me at all and was very nice. I also was in and out of the office in 1 hr!! :)
Couldn't have asked for anything better. Got to the matter at hand and then got on with our day.
I went in today for a very acute and minor issue and was in and out very quickly. He is very cordial and their apparently new location is very no frills but clean, quiet and efficient.
Had a very good annual check up. Dr. Kim was very patient and answer all my questions very thoroughly.
He's a really nice doctor whom I felt very comfortable with.
Very thorough and completely unrushed. I lost track of time discussing my issues that most doctors would have referred to a specialist or scheduled another appointment for.
Very polite and concerned
Dr. Kim was extremely helpful and very easy to talk to. The office staff also really seemed on the ball with things. I also think the ability to use their website to fill out forms and get information about myself to be extremely helpful. I would gladly recommend anyone use them.
Dr. Kim was very patient, warm and understanding. He listens.
Dr.Kim was very diligent in asking questions and also listened to my health concerns. took time to explain things and taught me more about maintaining good health. Thorough in every aspect also his assistants are friendly and very professional. highly highly recommended!
