The office is clean and staff is very nice. Waiting time is not bad, sometimes I’ve wait 30 minutes but some others my waiting tima was 0. Dr Kim is a very kowledgeable physician, I appreciate her kindness and how she takes time to check any affected area and anything around. Obviously ear, nose and throat are connected so she has to check more than your affected area.

Went to dr.kim for a swollen tonsil. Waited an hour in waiting room. called into patient room. waited another 25 minutes. Didn't even look at my throat. Stuck a nasal camera thru my nose cavity . I found out this procedure that only takes20 seconds made her $350 from my insurance. Then she wiped it off with a napkin. Disgusting. Did absolutely nothing to help me. Complete waste of my time and money. Stay away from this incompetent doctor.

Dr. Kims is an experienced doctor who knows what she is talking about. She knows the best way to treat any condition. The wait time is slightly to much but it is worth it.

Recently I was having some ear pain and decided to get it checked by an ENT. Once I arrived to a very easy to find office, I was greeted by friendly front staff. I was fortunate enough to be examined by her PA Santa as well as Dr Kim. Since my visit, my ears feel extra clean and my allergies have improved with their medical advice. I will definitely be following up for all my ENT needs.

Staff is extremely friendly. Dr Kim is extremely helpful in answering all my questions.
