Patient Comments (1)
|
A family member was diagnosed with lung CA after unforgivable delays caused by her PCP. Dr. Kim did not waste any time after the first appointment and scheduled surgery right away and took an hour explaining the procedure too. He anticipated the surgery would not be authorized by insurance at COH so he saved time by scheduling it in Pasadena. His scheduler Jill was great and everything went smoothly during and after surgery. Professional, compassionate, and decisive physician. COH is lucky.
