What People Say About Dr. Eugene Kim, MD
Dr. Kim and his medical staff were perfect. His front office lied to me about the cash price and sent me a fraudulent bill. I am filing a complaint with the BBB and if that doesn't resolve the matter then I am filing it with the Arizona Attorney General's Office.
