Dr. Kim is wonderful. He quickly assessed my complicated medical history and did a very comprehensive medical history. After explaining my diagnosis and treatment options, I feel totally confident in him as my physician and his the treatment option he recommended. He gave me ample time to ask questions and voice my concerns. I have no problem giving Dr. Kim a 5 star rating. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking an excellent physician.

Dr Kim was the only doctor who was able to correctly diagnose and order the correct tests to see why I had chronic urticaria. Then he gave me a treatment plan and helped me expedite the process to get the chronic urticaria under control. He answered all of my questions, and I had a lot since this condition is baffling. Dr. KIm sincerely cared and gave me the best care in Southern California.. I had been to two other specialists prior who did not take the extra steps that Dr. Kim did to help me.
