    New York, NY |
    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!
