I suffered a shoulder injury while training with my Jiujitsu sparring partners. I needed to find a top level Orthopedic Surgeon in Orange County who could repair my shoulder to handle the stresses I put on it at times. I liked what I read about Dr. Kim's training and affiliation, so I called his office to set up an appointment. Dr. Kim set me up for an MRI to accurately diagnosed my injury. The MRI showed I had a completely torn rotator cuff tendon, along with other damage to my labrum and biceps tendon. Dr. Kim's office staff guided me through the pre-surgery and post-surgery process. Special thanks to Mulani for the pre-surgery help...she is a life saver! Thank you too Melissa for your post-surgery help. Dr Kim performed surgery on my shoulder, and everything went exactly like he said it would. My shoulder recovery has been going great. It's getting stronger every week, along with increasing range of motion. My shoulder movement is very smooth! Thank you Dr. Kim! and Melissa!

Dr. Kim repaired my torn labrum about 8 years ago. I remember being pleased with my visits and the results of the surgery. No exaggeration, I was bench pressing more than I’d ever done my entire life exactly 12 months after the surgery—I wrestled in high school and have lifted weights my entire life, by the way.

Dr. Kim just performed shoulder surgery on my 18 yr old son. We saw 3 different orthopedic surgeons and chose to go with Dr. Kim. So glad we did. He is a caring, skilled dr. Scheduling the surgery was a breeze. Every one of his staff members we have dealt with have been friendly and professional.

Lisa Rudy in Huntington Beach, CA – Apr 24, 2018
Dr. Kim was very rude and barely looked at me the entire consultation because he was looking down and texting on an ipad. He was not providing guidance when I asked how he would help for my rhinoplasty questions. He made me feel uncomfortable and I felt he was condescending in the way he spoke to me. I don't think he took me seriously and didn't give me the time of day. It was very disappointing and I'd never go to him again.
