      drove from out of town to see him, had an appt, then i was told by his co-worker Audra Banerji that he was busy and wouldn't be able to see me, so come back in 2 weeks. Dr.Kim gave me 8 minutes of his time in the appt. Seemed disinterested in answering any questions and had the attitude of " You are asking too much, i am the expert, so just let me handle it" . If you are an educated patient, you will be annoyed. he started to walk out the door before i was finished. Didn't look at my MRI prior2

      Dr Kim is arrogant and does not listen! Regardless of how terrible the results or how sick you are afterward, he will not listen, change his protocol or adjust any of this "successful methods". All treatment received is cookie cutter and not at all devoted to the patient. His office staff is unorganized and rude. It takes over an hour past appointment time to see him. First you see a medical student, then a resident physician, then Dr. Kim comes in like he is the Pope and only stays 5 minutes.

      Outstanding compassionate surgeon! I trust him completely. He did a brain aneurysm clipping for me. I couldn't be more pleased!

      Dr. Kim and his team saved my wife's life today. He is the BEST neurosurgeon there is. Doctors do not get better than this man. We believe he is a Godsend. Dr. Kim was extremely kind, confident and courteous from start to finish. My wife had a Colloid Cyst removed today. She is in ICU as we speak and is doing just as well as Dr. Kim said. God bless you Dr. Kim and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Nobody would touch my wife because of her condition. Dr. Kim saved her life!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
