The customer service of the employees were horrible, disrespectful & rude. In order to receive the copy of my test result to be faxed to my primiry doctor too so long that I personally had to drive, go to the office, pay for it & get them by my self. So unhappy about their service! .... HORRIBLE!!!!!!

In the beginning I thought he was good. But later I suffered another accident and he just came in and said if I didn't have surgery at that moment I would loose function of my foot. That was it, no other options, just that! I panicked and said ok, but luckily someone convinced me to get a second opinion. The next day his office called me 6 times! They were trying to convince me to just go for surgery I got a second opinion and I am healing fine, no surgery needed..

I am surprised at seeing all of these negative reviews. Dr. Kim performed an open reduction, internal fixation surgery on my severely shattered patella. I had full confidence in him when he told me that he will treat my injury as he would his own. That was 2 months ago and I appear to be recovering well. If you are looking for warm and fuzzy, Dr. Kim may not be a good fit BUT, he IS warm but honest & to the point. He listens and takes the time to answer as many questions as you throw at him.

I went to see dr Kim about my shoulder I was extreme pain. He didn't care and told me to deal with it and stop doing what I was doing to make it hurt. Told him I had surgery on neck in 2008. It was the same pain I was currently having. I got a shot that didn't work He told me pain is in my head. MRI showed issues. He stated he was sending me to see a ortho surgeon. Aren't you a surgeon. He doesn't listen to his patients at all. He is a total jerk. Why is he still in business. wait time 2 hrs

Dr. Kim performed a Tibia operation on me after I was hit by a car. He put the Tibia back together OK, except he failed to look to see that my legs could go together, which they can't, My knees knock and feet don't go together anymore. This is called a valgus deviation. Also my knees hurt and 'crinkle' when I walk. When I talked to Dr. Kim about this to see how to fix the valgus deviation he said not to worry about it, dismissively and with no MRI or CT scan, said I was being neurotic.

The worst Dr. I have ever met. No bed side manner at all. Unkind and uncaring. When he came in the room it took him over 20 minutes to read my records from other Dr's. Barely spoke to me. Then, he told me he was worried about me and didn't even know me. I came for shoulder examination. What??? Waited almost 3 hours to see him. His office said they didn't know where he was when I asked where the Dr. was. I said what? Don't you work for him. LOL
