Dr. Kim saved my life, period. He recognized my condition during attempting to put a port in my chest. Had he been successful in implanting the port I was to wait 5 days before beginning chemo. Fortunately, for me he recognized that I wouldn't survive for another 5 days and had me admitted to the hospital where I did survive. I still needed a port and when asked who I wanted to do the surgery, there was only one answer---Dr. Kim

Dr. Kim performed my robotic bilateral in GUI allowing hernia operation recently. The procedure went extremely well and was a tremendous success. My recovery period went well and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. I feel truly blessed to have him as my surgeon.

Dr. Kim performed hernia surgery on me. Everything went fantastic from start to finish. The procedure went well, the recovery was a breeze, and the nurses called me daily to check how I was doing. Dr. Kim was very professional from the first appointment to the last and he clearly went over all of my options and answered my questions thoroughly. I would highly recommend him and I will call him in the future if the need arises. THANK YOU Dr. Kim!!

Dr. Kim did my hernia surgery on 25 April 2019. Overall it went great and I'd recommend him to anyone for this sort of procedure! I'm an engineer, so leading up to it I had a ton of questions. During the office visits prior he patiently listened to each one and gave me the information I was asking for, without judging how inane some of the questions might have been. Also, I never felt like he was in a rush to move on to his next appointment. Day of surgery went about as well as it could: - with an earlier patient canceling and processing me fast - surgery in the timeframe he described - time describing how it went (with pictures) to my wife - and rapid recovery in post-op Recovery at home and ability to do things again quickly was as good as one could expect.

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!
