    Dr. Kim listened and explained everything very well and involved me in decisions. I highly recommend him to others.

    Experienced on Aug 21, 2019

    He listened to my concerns, answered my questions & explained things well for my surgery & treatment.

    Experienced on Aug 18, 2019

    Provider forgot he was the one who conducted my surgery that happened only months prior. Have to meet his staff multiple times/appointments before being able to actually see him at which point information conflicts with the former. Also was dissatisfied with his approach with managing pain.

    Experienced on Jun 16, 2019

    Very disappointed - not with the physician but with the communication as what & when I could expect from treatment.
