My first visit with Dr. Kim. Very personable and professional. I have been a long-term ENT patient and felt very comfortable with Dr. Kim. He listens very attentively and was very thorough in his review.

Dr. Kim fitted my mentally handicapped son with a BAHA device which required implanting a screw in the side of his head. He is VERY skillful and took great care of my son. I highly recommend him.

the hearing test would have sufficed. it's ironic but this doctor does not listen and did not address the common problem of tinnitus, repeated himself all throughout the visit & wasted my time. gave no logical explanation on tinnitus which he blamed on bipolar disorder! very condescending & insensitive... he recommended white noise to mask the problem but was quick to recommend hearing aid! looks like $$$ and more damaging than helpful. would not recommend him even for my dog... seriously.

Very rushed and did not take my tinnitus issue to heart. Didn't listen to my questions nor care to try to really/compassionately answer. Did not recommend anything except blood work. Knowing I have suffered for a few years, and am currently experiencing worsening noise, I was expecting - hoping - for in-depth tests to be run; especially given his training and level. Alas, I was sent home with nothing! SO disappointed! Now looking to John's Hopkins.

I was almost completely deaf in my right ear. Dr. Kim fixed a related issue I had and fixed my hearing. I spent 18 years half deaf. Now I can hear. I am grateful every day that I met him. I expected to never hear again in one ear because nobody could help me. He honestly changed my life. I sent a friend to him and she has great results as well.

I just wanted to pass along that I had my Trans ? Lab method of surgery with Doctor Kim/Jean this last 12/8. It took six hours which Dr. Jean indicated as being a smooth operation. Since I decided on the trans lab approach I am SSD on my left. As far as I can tell I have zero facial paralysis.Dr. Kim spent a fair amount of time going through my options and surgery procedures. Excellent doctor and I felt he was very empathetic. Truly grateful for his expertise.
