Dr. Kim has been my pain management doctor for 10 years and I can't imagine anyone else treating me! He cares, he's compassionate and his staff is the best. He has allowed me to continue with my physical job with radio frequency ablation, it saved my career. Dr. Kim is the best MD I have ever encountered!
