I was impressed with the fact that the Doctor is a Great listener which is hard to find these days. Some doctors flip through your chart while your talking and hardly look up or acknowledge that they hear what you aresaying. Dr. Kim made me feel like he really cared about helping me with my health issues .

A sign needs to be posted in the waiting area letting patients know when the dr is running behind schedule and by how long the actual wait is. When making an appointment as a patient I expect to be seen atthe appointment time or at least within 20 minutes.

Very nice and easy to talk to. Explains issues in detail. His smile and pleasant demeanor and a bit of humor are greatly appreciated. You are not feeling rushed like with some doctors (like the other one I saw today for5 min.), that can't wait to kick you out of the office with bare minimum care.
