I can't stop singing praises to Dr. Kim. He has made me feel so much better after taking care of my gallstones. And I didn't even have pain after surgery. He is a great surgeon and i will send all my friends to him.

I needed my gallbladder out. I was so nervous and had so many questions. Dr. Kim explained everything really well and took the time to answer all of my questions. I felt so much better after surgery too.

My dad was very sick for a week. Turns out it was his gallbladder. Dr.Kim took the time to explain everything and made sure we understood. He took him to surgery that night. Dad came out of the surgery feeling great, better than he had in months. We were so thankful that Dr. Kim was in the hospital that night and that he was was able to take care of my dad. Overall an outstanding surgeon.
