Dr. Kim treats you like a 12 year old. Spends most of the time reviewing material needlessly. Grills you like he is a prosecuting attorney. I went to him to learn options available to me relating to diverticulitis. He rejected all diagnosis of diverticulitis by three different doctors and the emergency room staff at a local hospital. Probably the most arrogant doctor I have met in my 79 years. Find someone else.

I had a colostomy performed by a local surgeon. The procedure was to be reversable; however, complications arose which made the reversible not possible by the original surgeon. Just by shear luck, a home nursing care nurse suggested I contact Dr. Kim. Dr. Kim looked at my complete medical history and agreed to do the surgery. Dr.Kim literally changed my life successfully doing a resection of my colon thus eliminating the colostomy. I am forever endbted to Dr. Kim.

He was Excellent!My Dad at 83 had been diagnosed with colon/rectal cancer. Dr Kim was suggested. Dr Kim took very good care to exam the findings that sent Dad to him, to examine my Dad and to explain everything to Dad and myself in a very clear manner. Dad and I were very confident going into surgery. Dad was not worried at all, he believed in Dr Kim totally. Everything went great, Dr Kim saw Dad each day at the hospital, and even checked up by phone once him at home. Dad is now cancer free!5?
Dr Kim is a fantastic Doctor and surgeon. He is very kind, attentive and personable. I have recommended him to every member of my family. tTow of my family members including myself, upon routine screenings he found Cancer in its very early stages. So early that only surgery was needed and not the dreadful chemo. His follow up is care is very precise and comprehensive so you can be comfortable in knowing that If the Cancer returned he would know it immediately.

I absolutely love Dr. Kim. He has preformed 2 surgeries on me and both times I had excellent result from them. He is very knowledgeable and at no time did I experience any doubt of his ability to perform those surgeries. I am so glad I was referred to him. He is a 10 in my book.
