    Dr Kim is arrogant and does not listen! Regardless of how terrible the results or how sick you are afterward, he will not listen, change his protocol or adjust any of this "successful methods". All treatment received is cookie cutter and not at all devoted to the patient. His office staff is unorganized and rude. It takes over an hour past appointment time to see him. First you see a medical student, then a resident physician, then Dr. Kim comes in like he is the Pope and only stays 5 minutes.

    Dr. Kim and his team saved my wife's life today. He is the BEST neurosurgeon there is. Doctors do not get better than this man. We believe he is a Godsend. Dr. Kim was extremely kind, confident and courteous from start to finish. My wife had a Colloid Cyst removed today. She is in ICU as we speak and is doing just as well as Dr. Kim said. God bless you Dr. Kim and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Nobody would touch my wife because of her condition. Dr. Kim saved her life!
