      Very agressive and arrogant with everybody. Surprisingly, many people criticize him in his work place.
      in Boulder, CO |
      I was referred to Denver Health urology & saw Dr. Kim & his staff after waiting nearly 4 months for my appointment. They did some initial tests (flow, emptying, etc.) then ordered a CT. Seems the CT finding ranges from normal to potentially bladder cancer & they've had zero follow-up w/ my primary Dr or myself. Seems like the next step should be a cystoscopy? Or ? An appt to discuss the CT results & their inconclusive finding or the next step(s), it's a another 3-mon wait!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
