After dealing with lower back pain and almost continuous pain from 2 broken hands suffered 40 years ago, Dr. Kim has found the right medication and dosage to make my ailments manageable and my life once again enjoyable. I am SO grateful that I found Dr. Kim and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with chronic pain. I always find his staff friendly and helpful too!

Dr Kim is my primary doctor and also manages my back pain. He is extremely thorough during appointments and makes sure he answers every question you have.

Dr. Kim doesn't listen to his patients. He acts like we live in a perfect world and when you have back problems you just stay and home, quit your job and quit living. I told him the same thing 6 different ways and he just kept telling me that if I can't do my job without causing pain and discomfort, then I need to find something else to do. That man is a quack!

Dr Kim is a very good Dr. Somewhat hurried. He is very good at following up on things. Doesn't over prescribe pain meds but make you able to live with chronic pain comfortably. I have been pt for 9 yrs and have been satisfied with him personally. Not his staff! His staff and billing are awful and have caused me to consider changing in Dr's several times. Which is why I'm on this site right now.

Back in 2006-2007 I drove my wife 159 miles one way every month to see Dr. Kim, as he very methodically and scientifically (through trial and error) worked on providing her the best balanced set of prescriptions. Then like all other Doctors seem to do, he decided that she wasn't getting better and had her try an aggressive PT that was way way too much for her. Then he prescribed something he knew wouldn't work and LEFT THE COUNTRY the next day! No warning, advice, referrals, etc. for months.
