      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Dr. Kim's Care Philosophy

      I have dedicated my life to serving patients overcome their surgical challenges. Combining over 25 years of experience and renowned expertise, I tailor treatments to the unique individual needs of each patient. Incorporating the latest advances in technology(laparoscopy, robotics) with insights in genetics and immunotherapy, helps insure state of the art care. To minimize anxiety and optimize care, I personally examine and operate on each patient and guarantee prompt appointment times.
