First visit went ok. I sat in exam room for more than 30 minutes. He seemed concerned about my medical issue not being taken care of after 3 times and that he could do it successfully.

Dr Kim and his PA Claire Tomlinson are very professional, courtious and respectful. They immediately diagnosed thoracic outlet syndrome through ultrasound. After surgery we immediately felt relief. Dr Kim and Claire saved my arm. Thank you

Dr. Kim might be the world's best vein doctor, but I've had nothing but aggravation and irritation dealing with his administrative personnel. I'm told I'll be called, but never get called. I call and after the recording, someone might answer and I'll get voice mail to leave a message. I don't get called even if I leave a message. When I'm answered, I get passed from person to person with each time requiring me to listen to the recording. I'm fed up with his administrative stall.

My husband had a minor car wreck November 2015. When the ER staff was evaluating for any injuries, they detected a very small Aneursym and referred him to Dr. Kim. Understandably, my husband and I were so fearful. I believe Dr. Kim was absolutely one of the best physicians we have ever had met. He was so down to earth, kind, professional, and explained everything in such detail, but on a level that someone without the knowledge of these things would understand. He truly calmed our fears!
