Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kim "I believe in teaching patients to understanf the disease and how to get well through surgery or medications. If patients understanf what the disease is about, they become very active and positive toward my reccomendation. This further extends into the idea of team work. I am not a one man army to treat all diseases. I believe in ONE TEAM."

Dr. Kim botched my grandfather's surgery and he is now dead because of Dr. Kim's inadequacy. I will never allow any of my loved ones to go to this hospital again. Our family is devastated by our unexpected loss. Do not trust Dr. Kim with your family, he will kill them.

Dr. Arthur Kim is very friendly and very easy to talk to. I was very afraid before the surgery but Dr. Kim put me at ease with jokes and his comfort speaking. I'll recommend Dr. Kim to everyone.
