Dr. Brian Kim was very professional, personable, efficient, and accurate in diagnosing my medical condition. His surgical treatment (ablation) resolved my condition immediately and permanently. What else could one ask? He was fantastic!

He did a pacemaker surgery on me over three month ago. August 2018. He did not come and see me after the surgery and have not been able to see him sense. Been told he feels it not needed to see one after surgery. Have no clue what he did or anything. I would not see this DR of he feel he doen't need to do follow up appointment. I have no clue to if the device is working right for me. He has not take my blood pressure or checked my heart beat yet. Find a Dr that care about you. I tb

I first saw Dr Kim two years ago for a heart ablation. He treated me extremely well, answered all of my questions, and totally took care of my SVT episodes. I now am in constant afib and he is treating me for that. I am receiving the same outstanding care from him that I did two years ago. I have total trust and confidence in Dr Kim and am literally trusting him with my life. Dr Kim’s staff are also extremely friendly, competent, patient, and professional. Dr Kim and staff are the best.
