Auburn, CA |
Dr. Kim is knowledgeable about his field. He is very friendly, and he is the most tech-savvy doctor I have ever met!
in Auburn, CA |
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.
Maryland |
8/9/2016 I had planned my visit from Maryland. So i could go with him to his Oncologist appointment. I wanted to meet the Doctor that has been treating my Dad. Dad has such love and respect for "his Dr Kim" the man who has taken such wonderfully loving care of my Dad. The min. we walked into Dr Kim's office we were welcome by Dr Kim & his wonderful staff. It made me feel so good knowing my Dad is in such good hands with Dr Kim. Dr Kim is excellent and number one in my eyes.

I have been a patient of Dr. Brian Kim since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. I visited him in a local office, and when he transferred to a town about an hour away, I continued to see him because I trust him with my care. He has been very thorough in addressing my needs, professional, and personable. I plan to stay in Dr. Kim's care until it is no longer necessary.
Rocklin, CA |
Dr. Kim was very cold towards my mother after her cancer diagnosis. He refused to answer simple questions about her diagnosis. He was very short with his medical explanations and did not give her all of the information. My whole family did not trust that my mother was in good hands with him. We were all VERY disappointed with him and I would not refer him to anyone who is going through this journey.
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
