I hate to say that there are a limited number of Urologists who are kind, caring and friendly, however, Dr. Cherullo is one of those.

Review of Dr. Kim

- in Akron, OH |

The attention and care Dr. Kim gives his patients is exceptional. Dr. Kim performed surgery on my father. He was attentive to the needs of both my father and the family. He was so concerned that my dad had his surgery, he stayed late to perform it when promised. Dr. Kim's dedication is unmatched.

My husband was referred to Dr. Kim for prostate cancer by our urologist. He was told he had very aggressive prostate cancer. He is so nice and thorough. He performed a robotic surgery and removed his prostate. He did great. Dr. Kim is simply the best. My husband is doing great!

I met Dr. Kim when my mom needed a cancerous tumor removed on her kidney. Dr. Kim was very thorough and gave all of our options. He showed compassion and treated us with great care and attention. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kim and I am thankful he was our surgeon. I trust him and my mom is proof of his great work. Thank you Dr. Kim!

Review of Dr. Kim

- in Lorain, Ohio |

Our urologist referred us to Dr. Kim. We were told he takes on really difficult cancers. What a wonderful and caring doctor. He performed a complex bladder cancer operation on me and I did great. He gave us his cell phone and asked us to call him if we had any problems or questions. There are very few doctors like Dr. Kim. He saved my life. I will be forever grateful to him.

Review of Dr. Kim

When my husband's prostate cancer metastasized to the bone we went on a search for an oncologist. After much research we made an appointment to see Dr. Simon Kim. Sunday evening, before the appointment, I received a call from Dr. Kim. He explained that the purpose of his call was to learn as much as possibly about my husband's condition prior to the initial meeting.

Review of Dr. Kim

Dr. Kim is PHENOMENAL!!! My husband was on borrowed time and needed quite an extensive surgery. Dr. Kim was great with explaining what the surgery entailed and put it in layman's terms so we would understand better. We are grateful for him as he saved my husband's life. Thank you Dr. Simon Kim!!!!

Review of Dr. Kim

-Willoughby |

Dr. Kim was recommended to my mother after high grade bladder cancer was diagnosed in the fall of 2017. Our first impression was good, however, his information was unreliable and incorrect in several instances, As an 84 yr old person with Crohn's Disease, I do not feel Dr. Kim adequately prepared my mother for the procedure, which included removal of the bladder, beyond providing a pamphlet. My mother died of complications 5 weeks following the procedure.
