    I called and I was asked "can I put you on hold" and I WAS HUNG UP ON. I called back and I was asked again "can I put you on hold" I said "you cannot you hung up on me last time" and she told me to call back and hung up AGAIN. I'M FURIOUS If Dr Kim wasn't awesome I would not call at all!!

    Dr. Kim is wonderful! Best doctor ever! If I could have him for all of my medical needs I would. He saved my life. He is confident, compassionate and caring. I feel he really cared about me, not as only a patient, but a friend. He said he would take care of me and he did. He operated on me 2X, both very serious operations. I trust him 100%. He walked me thru each procedure one step at a time. Anyone diagnosed w/colon/intestinal issues should see Dr. Kim. General surgeons willing to operate on just about anyone for anything is really scary.... I will always choose a specialist no matter the cost/travel/etc. I was fortunate to have a great team of doctors with my cancer diagnosis/treatments/support.

    Dr. Kim is the best doctor I have ever seen. I wish every patient could experience a medical professional as caring and competent as Dr. Kim.

    Dr. Kim was so personable and kind and considerate regarding my condition. He listened to everything that I had to say. He considered all of my opinions and options and feelings about my surgery and helped me make the best decision possible for me. And he went out of his way to make sure I received the surgical care that I needed as soon as possible.

    Dr. Kim is a brilliant surgeon who is able to explain things on my level. He answered my questions thoroughly and he listened with and showed great concern for my care. He's an exceptional physician and intermountain healthcare's lucky to have him.

    Dr. Kim has an amazing bedside manner, takes time to listen to you, reassures you, and makes sure you know everything that's going to happen and he answers all your questions. Best care I ever had.
