Patient Comments (5)
Dr. Kim showed very little compassion to continued pain post surgery. I felt his attention to detail prior was very strong, but it was a different story when surgical outcomes weren't as anticipated. Very disappointed and furthermore in a lot of pain two years post surgical procedure.

Dr. Kim did an L5-S1 spinal fusion for me a few weeks ago. Due to its location behind my hip bone, he had to come in from the front - more complex surgery. I haven't felt this good in years!! Easy to talk with, excellent explanations, upbeat, etc. Excellent staff. I cannot say enough good things.

Had a consult after finding that my previous spine surgeon had retired. Already had the MRI to bring him. Surgery of a ruptured disc was the original diagnosis. The disc directly below had already been removed. Dr. Kim did a brief exam, and suggested exercise. Brought this back to my guy, who was pissed, and told me without a doubt - no exercise beyond walking. I did get a spinal pain shot, but only worked for about a month. He's a hack - stay away ! This from 2 other surgeons !

Dr. Kim is wonderful caring doctor. He has operated on me 2 times in 12 years for sinal fusion and in both cases has been extremely attentive and informative. He is a great doctor
I have had 2 surgeries with Dr Kim. I trust him completely. He explains everything and never rushes you. He has a very kind demeanor and I truly treats you like he wouldvtreat family.
