Patient Comments (1)
Palatine, IL |
Dr. Kim is an EXCELLENT doctor! He is kind, has great bedside manner, listens to you, and explains things in an honest straightforward way. I saw him after going blind in one eye from severe diabetes. He told me that there was a lot of scarring and bleeding in the back of my eye and I needed surgery, but even then I might not regain my vision. At the hospital, the nurses flat out told me he was the best retina surgeon they worked with. I can now read and drive with that eye!
