Spent her time with me. Cared, and listened.

Review for Dr. Kim

I am a 72 year old male, still working full-time as a physicist. My main concern in embarking on this necessary surgery was preservation of brain function. Dr. Kwon and his team-nurse practitioner Parntip Lai and Ravi Boghossian- immediately focused on this concern and all options for addressing it....

Review for Dr. Kwon

Dr Cheung did a total shoulder replacement on me. I now have about 98 % range of motion as 81 yrs old. He is very professional and is very personable. I am very happy that he was the one that was given to me to be my surgeon, and I highly recommend him to anyone as a specialist in his field.

Review for Dr. Cheung

I worked with Dr. Ahlering in the Cancer Center at UCI many years ago.. He was outstanding the entire time then, as he has always been since. Patients are so very fortunate to have this exceptional physician both procedurally and interpersonally. He is an immensely gifted dr.

Review for Dr. Ahlering

She took her time to listen to my concerns. I am opposed to taking medications, and she took her time to explain why it was important for me. Thank you, Dr Kim! And her staff seem so nice.
