The worst experience ever. My daughter fractured her elbow and was referred to Dr.Kim at chippenham. He was very rude and dismissive. He had a bad attitude as soon as he walked into the room. We opted to not go through with the surgery there and went to VCU.

My son has been seen for 2 years by another orthopedic and was referred to Dr Kim due to him being pediatric. It was the worst experience I've ever had with a dr. He would not answer my questions and when I told him what the other dr said I was told very rudely that they did not agree on what the problem was. He left the room and never came back in. Told us my son was getting cast but got boot. When questioning the MA I was told Dr Kim went to cast a baby and was too busy to come back in.

My 21 year old daughter was referred to her by her Orthopedic Dr. because of a birth defect in her leg, and knee problems she now has. Yes, my daughter is over weight, due to another health issue that has nothing to do with Dr. Kim. Dr. Kim walked into the room, and began shaking his head. He was reading her paper work, shaking his head the entire time. Then looked at her and asked her what she was there for, his tone set the mood. She clammed up, because she knew he was looking down on her.

My 5 yr old son was in extreme pain in his hip. With a young child in obvious pain, I did not even sit down in his waiting room. He was in an observation room immediately. Dr. Kim knew what it was immediately - a virus in his hip. He admitted him to the hospital for pain management and observation. Dr. Kim took great care of my son and checked on him frequently. He was patient with all of my questions as a parent.
