Dr. Kim was wonderful. He listened to my concerns and explained everything to me. I would certainly recommend him.
Dublin, ohio |
I have never been witness to horrendous treatment by a physician who cashed my sister's check. Dr. Kim claims that Ortho Neuro is NOT capable of cortisone shots, nor prescription traction. Do not be fooled by his credentials, as he is not interested in your symptoms, but rather your cop-pay. He is a disgrace to doctors who are interested in innovative, forward thinking; in fact, he cannot even recognize the obvious. Please, do us all a favor and retire your medical license. Do no more harm!

I have had 2 surgeries with Dr Kim. I have had great experience both times. I have referred him and will go back to him with any spinal issues I have

If I could leave negative stars I would. This man almost killed me. I evidentially was his very first spinal cord stimulator. My trial was 8 hours on an operating table which I later found out takes 20 minutes and there should be NO incisions. He told me I should get the permanent with medtronics who I will never use again. I did 8-10 hours later I was in pain for 2 weeks with one of my incisions that kept opening and was infected. After going to grant I was full of staph and it had to be remove
