I'm so lucky to have had Dr. Kim recommended to me after my thyroid was removed due to thyroid cancer. He takes ample time during his appointments. He makes certain to explain everything, and types up a visit summary for me to leave with. Whenever I message him with a question, he answers it quickly. I feel very confident finishing my cancer treatment with a doctor who cares so much for his patients.

Dr Kim has been great! He really took the time to explain everything in detail and all my treatment options. He goes as far as being available outside office hours to personally call you to go over test results. When he did my biopsy it was quick and as painless as possible. I highly recommend seeing Dr Kim for any thyroid issues, he's the top in his field. The only negative thing I have is the girls in the front desk are not always friendly.Which is a shame because it sets the tone of the visit

Dr Kim was cold and not nice. He did not listen to me and was over an hour late for the apt. No less other Dr's would come in the room and interrupt the apt . After waiting an hour , all I got was a lecture , all my symptoms were blown off and he would not even consider running tests I asked for. My TSH that he would run,came back 10+ the high end of the lab range , he never called me to discuss my results. This was a true disappointment for RUSH and me, I will not be going back to him or RUSH
