DO Not GO TO THIS MAN!!!!!!!!! I had to have a kidney removed because of him, He destroyed my kidney, The dr that ended up having to remove my kidney said he didn't see how he is still aloud to be having surgery on anyone,I live in pain every day because of this man not only did he destroy my kidneys he destroyed my daily living, So please, please don't see him, This man should not be doing surgery on anyone cause he doesn't know what he's doing and he doesn't care if he damages your body

Felt comfortable with the doctor and his surgical expertise. Nice man. Did not appreciate a resident assisting in my vasectomy without permission, though. Dr. Kim did one side and the resident did the other. The first snip didn't hurt at all, but the second one was so painful that I almost jumped off the table.

I would not recommend this man to anyone. He literally made jokes with a trainee about my condition while in my exam room.
in Pigon Forge Tn |
Very poor customer service. Would not return calls about problem from surgery to myself or my family Doctor
in Bristol, VA |
Dr. Kim appears to be professional in his approach and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to a friend.
Knoxville, TN |
I would never recommend Dr. Kim to anybody. He didn't listen to me. He didn't seem to care at all about me as a patient. I would highly recommend seeking a different doctor.
