Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kim "Visiting a surgeon can seem overwhelming. It is my job to foster candid discussions with patients to help alleviate any feelings of uncertainty, fear or anxiety. I communicate openly, to ensure patients have a complete understanding of their disease, as well as the surgical options available to them. I also encourage patients to take an active role in all aspects of their health care. My goal is to treat patients as I would want my family to be treated: with knowledgeable and compassionate care."
