    Dr. Kim was very caring and thorough in his examination. His staff was also very professional and his office was very clean. I feel very comfortable coming to this office because the doctor that did my hip replacement is also part of Desert Orthopedic. Im a 35 yr old female dealing with left and right hip dysplasia and herniated discs in the Lumbar region. I had total hip replacement on the right hip and the left hip will be done soon but until then i will come see Dr. Kim to help manage my pain

    Dr Kim is a good doctor as well as person. He cares about his patients and has always been honest and does everything he can to help me deal with my pain in neck before my surgery and after. I would highly recommend him and DESERT ORTHOPEDICS. He is honest and always been helpful and straight to the point with me about my health. He has been my doctor since 2012 at previous pain center. When he came to Desert Orthopedics I transferred from previous pain center and had two appointments .
    Las Vegas, NV |
    I was referred to Dr. Kim for an EMG. He started our interaction by greeting me and shaking my hand. He then sat down next to me to discuss my issues and explain the test he was about to perform. During the EMG he talked with me and assured my comfort. I found him to be kind and gentle, yet straightforward about his preliminary findings. As an RN I am most critical about healthcare providers. Dr. Kim was great! Highly recommend.

    I have been seeing Dr Kim for a failed back surgery. He has helped me manage my pain and also accessed my condition for other avenues such as injections, nerve blocks, Epidurals etc.
    in Las Vegas Nevada |
    Dr. Kim has been a blessing so far. I've been passed on from Dr to Dr and not one has ever sat down and listened to me completely like Dr Kim. Things are looking up and I am looking forward to my procedures so I can feel good again. Thank you Dr. Kim and your wonderful staff.

    Dr. Kim has been helping me control my back and arthritic knee pain for nearly a year. I am a RN, so I definitely critique physicians' interactions with their staff and patients. Dr. Kim is knowledgeable, caring, respectful and takes a holistic approach to the "whole" issues of the patient. I have recommended Dr. Kim to others who have told me they are very glad they went to see him. Kudos, Dr. Kim!

    I recently had a procedure that I was highly nervous about getting. Dr. Kim was so gentle & put me at ease. Made sure I was ok throughout proceedure. He's a kind, caring Dr. Who puts his patients first. Highly recommend him.
    in Henderson, NV |
    Very good doctor. He listens and answers questions. He is open to suggestions and try's very hard to offer the best medical advice. He's also pleasant and easy to talk to. I've seen him for about 3 years. I am very pleased with the care he has given me.
    in Las Vegas, NV |
    Just started seeing Dr Kim after failed back surgery. What I appreciate most about him is that he is not only concerned with writing a script for pain meds and sending you on your way. He concentrates on the cause of your pain and treats the cause through other non-invasive means if possible. He also doesnt seem to be a proponent of unnecessary back surgery, which is a relief considering he works with an orthopedic surgery office. hoping he can help with my chronic back pain.
    in Las Vegas, NV |
    Dr. kim is easygoing, approachable and warm~ hearted. I have only lived in Las Vegas for 3yrs and Dr. Kim was my doctor for my chronic pain since I got here. Unfortunately he has moved on and I thank him for the stability and medical/pain help. ??
    in Las Vegas, NV |
    I have been with Dr.Kim for several years. His bedside manner is wonderful! He truly cares, takes time to understand what I am feeling, and comes up with a plan. He explains everything!!! I wish he was my general practitioner as well. So sad to see that you are no longer at Southern Nevada Pain Center. I will be watching to see if you move. My visit today was sadly lacking your compassion.

    Outstanding and caring doctor!!! Very honest and good at his job.
