What People Say About Dr. Edward Kim, MD
RecentMost Helpful

After consulting with a different surgeon, I met with Dr. Kim. He gave me a detailed explanation of what he would do to repair my hernia. He explained that he would do it laproscopically and close the opening. I was very happy to hear that because it was the total opposite of what I had been told by the first surgeon I consulted. After surgery, I had to return to the hospital because of ileus. Dr. Kim was there every day and sometimes twice a day. He explained what was happening and what I could expect. His calm, matter of fact demeanor was very reassuring. Things happened exactly like he said they would. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kim.

Dr. Kim was recommended to me for my recent hernia surgery. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Kim and robotic surgery. He explained everything in detail and while he expressed the benefits of robotic surgery , he did not oversell. My recovery was faster than anticipated and the only issue was feeling better than I expected to within a short time.e

Dr Kim fixed a hernia surgery I had in Florida several years back. Developed chronic pain. He performed the surgery with the robot. Took down scar tissue, removed the old mesh and placed new mesh. Recovery was exactly how Dr. Kim predicted. I'm feeling good and back to my old activities. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff to my friends and family.

Dr. Kim is a pleasant and thorough physician. My experience with him was first in the emergency dept. He explained my situation thoroughly and was very receptive to questions. A week later I had surgery. I had very good results and healed very well. Dr. Kim again gave me through post op instructions and answered any questions that I had. I felt comfortable taking his recommendations throughout the entire process. Dr. Kim is calm and reassuring. I appreciate this in my doctor.

I am extremely appreciative to Dr. Kim for the superb hernia surgery that he did for me 3 weeks ago, healing is going well and recovery has been on fast pace. I have seen pictures of the surgery with installation of the mesh and greatly appreciate the professionalism and the high tech that Dr. Kim possess. Thank you so much and wishing him the best

Dr. Kim is an excellent surgeon. My Inguinal Hernia was repaired via minimally invasive robotic surgery resulting in very little pain and rapid recovery. Dr. Kim was very good at explaining the various options for the surgery and how the recovery would proceed. His advise and skill was truly outstanding!

Dr. Kim performed exploratory surgery on my dear 88 year old mother on Saturday April 14,2018 at Rex hospital. I was so pleased with Dr. kim. I liked his demeanor and he was informative. He saved my mother’s life. She entered the emergency room not thinking her situation was as serious as it turned out to be. I appreciate everything he did to help my mother through a life threatening situation. Olivia
