My cancer journey began in another town with a fantastic doctor; my expectations finding a doctor In Auburn was very important to me. I asked around especially within the medical community and personal friends. I recommend Dr. Kim to anyone looking for a "take care of business" kind of doctor.

Being diagnosed with a cancer is incredibly stressful. I try to explain (in plain English) to the patient/loved ones what the diagnosis means, use pictures and diagrams, explain significance of their reports and most importantly what the options are. I'm not sure what happened with the pt above. I always end by asking if they have any questions and just listening to understand their concerns. Spending time, answering questions and being a teacher is my passion as a cancer provider. Dr. Kim
