I saw Dr. Kim after having severe sciatica pain. He is a great doctor and very professional. He helped me understand the condition and recommended performing microdiscectomy. It went very well. I was walking the same day and I went back to work after 4 days.

Dr. Kim is the best and after major back surgery I was back at work in five days and walked two miles at Memorial Park in 15 days. A great experience all around.
