Dr. Kim removed my appendix and the whole process went flawlessly. She walked me through the procedure and followed up with me after my surgery. I would highly recommend her.

I had breast cancer surgery and Dr. Kim was excellent. She explained my surgery very carefully and answered all of my questions about the forthcoming surgery. She is very understanding and thorough. Her office staff is also very good and helpful. I highly recommend her.
