My experience was very good. Dr. Kim listened and responded to my questions. He was thorough with my exam and concerned with my history. I was comfortable and pleased with Dr. Kim. I believe he takes everything said to heart and wants to make sure you are well taken care of.

HE'S HIGHLY ANXIOUS. WHAT HE SAYS TO YOU IN THE ROOM IS DIFFERENT THAN IT IS WHEN HE WRITES A SCRIPT. HE ASKS THE SAME QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER NEVER REMEMBERING WHAT YOU SAID. THESE ARE NOT THE STANDARD QUESTIONS, HOW ARE YOU FEELING ETC. I CAN'T COUNT ON WHAT HE SAYS.
