    Dr. Arthur Kim is very friendly and very easy to talk to. I was very afraid before the surgery but Dr. Kim put me at ease with jokes and his comfort speaking. I'll recommend Dr. Kim to everyone. He is #1 on my list. If I need any surgery in the future, he is the one I want to do it! Thanks Dr/Mr. Kim. ??
