I found Dr. Kim to be extremely gentle, trustworthy and helpful explaining my condition and options and answering all of my questions in an understandable way. I was able to utilize his physical therapy office right across the hall and they were wonderful in helping me to strengthen myself and overcome pain. The fact that they literally work so closely with him is a plus.

I came to Dr Kim after years of knee pain. I had surgery in December of 2017 and have not had pain since. As long as you listen to his care instructions, you will be fine. Minda and Maria are great and followed up with me when I had questions and scheduling my appointments was easy. I definitely recommend Dr Kim and will come back to see him again if I need to.

He is only in it for the money. Extremely arrogant and listens maybe half the time. The physical therapy staff is also very unknowledgable. Go elsewhere please

I have been very pleased with the results of my arthroscopic procedure and the inter-action with Doctor Kim and his entire staff. I appreciate doctor Kim's knowledge and how he takes time to explain each step through the process, both pre and post operation. I have been telling both friends and family how pleased I have been with the entire process and would recommend doctor Kim to anyone that may need this specialized surgical procedure in the future.

Dr. Kim, his staff and P.T. staff are awesome. I've had 5 surgeries performed by Dr. Kim, 1 in 1988 and 1 in 1989, Bi-Lateral CTR. 1 in 2014, Left Mencius Repair. 2 in 2015, Right Shoulder Repair and Game Keeper's Thumb. Had a terrible fall at work in December 2013. I've referred family, friends and acquaintances to Dr. Kim's office and will continue to do so, his work is really good, minimal scarring, pain and the outcomes are way better than expected! Thank You, Dr. Kim, staff and P.T. staff!
