The best as always. highly recommend!!
Dr. Kim was incredibly thorough and friendly. He answered all of my questions and addressed all of my medical concerns. I am certainly losting him as my new primary care doctor.
He was very unprofessional and literally didn't give me a physical because "my other doctors monitor my blood work". So what? There's other things to look at as well.
He was so helpful and communicative .
Really nice guy.
Dr. Kim was very thorough and kind. The reviews published below were accurate, and I'm glad I chose him as my new PCP.
Dr. Kim was a very patient listener and very reassuring. Anyone that can put up with me deserves a good review.
His nurse was courteous. He was friendly. Office was clean and efficient.
Doctor was dismissive of my concerns and assumed I was some kind of hypochondriac. I am being perhaps proactive about my health but but my concerns are legitimate and based on facts. Patients deserve to be taken seriously and not condescended to, especially when they are female, dismissal of symptoms can be common and I find it insulting.
He was patient, concise and friendly. Explained things along the way, and provided helpful information of what to do next. Thankful to have him as my newfound doctor.
Great experience. Will use as my primary doctor moving forward!

Dr. Kim is attentive - he uses active listening and takes your comments seriously. He understands your concerns and takes them into account in his diagnosis and treatment. He took extra time to ensure that I got an immediate appointment for referral to a specialist.
VERY NICE EXPERIENCE... DR. KIM IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HELPFUL IN EVERY WAY. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE.
Saw Dr. Kim for a second opinion. I was treated warmly and courteously by RN Sultana and promptly seen by Dr. Kim. I so appreciated the time he took to explain the situation, and the way he covered everything.
Great. Quick, friendly. Easy going, but also clearly informed and able to clearly communicate with me. Didn't feel rushed, or ill-at-ease at all.
Very nice, concerned and easy to speak to.
He was extremely thorough, answered all of my questions with not only his answers but the reasoning behind them and I never felt rushed. Definitely going back!
So thoughtful and thorough. Dr Kim is the man, wanted to recommend him to my friends and family immediately.
I visited Dr. Kim for an Annual Physical as well as to discuss some anxiety issues that had recently re-arisen. He was easy to talk to, understanding, helpful, and made me feel completely at ease. He spoke to me honestly about my options, listened to my concerns, and didn't make me feel silly for asking any questions or misunderstanding anything. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a knowledgable and understanding doctor.
Highly recommend Dr. Kim -- affable and always helpful, would recommend him to anyone
nice guy, professional. quick check-up, pretty standard.
Part of the Mt Sinai system. Office looked busy but was surprisingly efficient and quick! Got done with my physical in less than 45 mins. Dr. Kim is easy to talk to though it was my first visit and happy to have him as my primary doc
I'm a patient of the Mt. Sinai BH practice and my regular doc was not available, needed to be seen right away as I've had a cold for three weeks that won't go away. Dr. Kim was great, did a full exam, empathized, prescribed, then came back in and double-checked on a couple of meds I'm taking to make sure there were no conflicts. All good. Would definitely see him again. In fact thinking of changing my PCP to him.
Very helpful, kind and informative
Dr. Kim has great bedside manner and since it was my first visit, he was very thorough in trying to establish my medical history in order to figure out what to do next. He made me feel comfortable and I appreciated him walking through his thought processes. I would recommend this doctor to others.
I always anticipate going to the Dr, usually deeply concern about being seen as a person first , in need rather than a dollar sign.I am so lucky to have found this Dr. the environment is cleaning, the lay out of the office space is just right private and the staff is awesome. the wait time was unbelievably short. the receptionist and the medical assistant was my first impression. They made me feel like I was having a meeting with a family member so much so I forgot I was about to see the Dr. Thanks Dr Kim for representing yourself and the profession so well. looking forward to meeting with you in the future. The entire staff i say thanks
I am so relieved after seeing Dr. Michael Kim today. He was so professional and helpful when answering all of my questions. I would go back to his office in a heartbeat.
Nice guy heplful
Really friendly. Would go back again.
Dr. Kim was kind, friendly reassuring, asked questions, and helped to decide what to do next.
Incredible experience. Really can't say enough about the professionalism,promptness, and friendlieness of both Dr. Kim and the entire staff at the office.
Good experience with Dr. Kim. Spent plenty of time talking through the main reason for my visit, as well as a few other things I wanted to ask about. Asked me to schedule a follow-up visit in a couple weeks, which I did. Seems genuinely interested in establishing a continuing doctor/patient relationship as my PCP, which based on my experience today I'm happy to do.
My first physical with Dr. Kim was great. Relatively short wait time for a 9 am appointment and he took plenty of time to ask about my health and answer my questions in detail. Very nice guy, easy to recommend.
The staff was beyond wonderful! Every single person from the time I arrived until I left was helpful and kind, not to mention pros dealing with needle anxious people like me.
Friendly, informative, to the point. Loved,it!
Good bedside manner. very nice and took his time. A little cooky where it seemed like he had a lot of things running through his head and he didn't know what to say first, but overall a good doctor.
Friendly staff from the doc, nurse, receptionist all the way down to the lab technician. Clean nice office and great experience.
Dr. Kim is super nice, very easy to talk to, listened and answered everything thoroughly. Highly recommend.
Dr. Kim has an incredible bedside manner and really pays attention to your concerns. The whole office is really professional. Will highly recommend.
Went to Dr. Kim for an annual physical. He was warm, and courteous, had excellent bed side manner, but also importantly he clearly knew what he was doing. I recommend him. As to the staff itself, I waited no more than 10 minutes when I was there to see the Dr. Then they drew some blood, and the whole process was pretty effortless. Handled courteously. They respected my time, which means a lot to me.
Dr. Kim is courteous and professional. Excellent practitioner highly recommended!
He was great. Gave me his straight up opinion and helped me figure out what I should do.
No follow up initiated. Dismissive. Really disorganized office
Felt very slighted by this appointment. I had hoped to discuss a few things with Dr. Kim, but he had a meeting to go to and literally made me choose what he was going to look at, as well as rushing through the entire appointment. It's pretty bad to make appointments if you have a meeting to attend 30 minutes later. I was hoping to get a referral to someone (either a specialist or a physical therapist), but what I got was a "deal with it" speech. Not helpful, not satisfied.
Excellent - took time to explain and didn't feel rushed.
Dr. Kim was very attentive and provides care that is difficult to get elsewhere.
Professional, Friendly, personable, and knowledgeable.
Needed a new PCP (changed neighborhoods). My husband actually found him and said he was good. The offices are clean and very professional, actually leveraging technology. People are quick, efficient and appear very competent. Dr. Kim has good energy, you feel at ease. I asked me him to prescribe me meds and I was glad he told me that I didn't need meds, and just needed to change my lifestyle and focus on prevention, which really, if every doctor were like that, healthcare expenditure in the US would plummet. Got bloodwork not 10 minutes later and was well on my way. SO glad to have him and this office as my new primary care!
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!

I highly recommend Dr. Kim. Go see him and you will know why :) .

He is very professional. Asked the right questions. Easy to share with. And follows up!
He was very friendly, asking lots of questions. willing to listen.
was recommended as a Dermatologist by ZocDoc, but doesn't actually do anything in Dermatology.
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.
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!
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.
Dr. Kim's my all-time favorite Doctor.... He's a competent physician and a lovable human being.
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!
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.

I like him and I trust him... I am very happy with my new doc!
It was fine.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
