What People Say About Dr. David Kim, MD

My experience with Dr Kim's office has been exceptional. Everyone has been very helpful and nice. They were able to get everything taken care of insurance so I could get surgery before the end of the year. I met Dr Kim many years ago when the Lap band was first out. He was very informative and made sure I understood the complications and what I should expect. I didn't get the surgery but fast forward to 2016 and I knew when I was ready for surgery I was going back to Dr Kim's office.

I live in New Mexico and was sleeved in Texas in the summer of 2012 and lost a total of 65 pounds. After about 18 months the initial restriction that I once had was gone and I could eat large amounts of food again. I've gained back all of the weight. I contacted Dr. Kim's office about a revison to the duodenal switch but I was curtly informed that he doesn't perform revison procedures on out of town clients. I wish he would've told me that years ago when he had no problem taking my $12,000.

I am following the surgeon that did my surgery, but this office all it wants is to put people down and take customers money. They will NOT help you financially or make you feel ease on loosing weight. I will never recommend this office.
