Patient Comments (1)
in San Pedro, CA |
Dr. Kim is a terrific doctor, professional and well rounded. He showed a genuine interest in my chief complaints and went out of his way to get my WC to approve my medications and treatments. After a few months under his care, he decreased my pain, swelling, and numbness of my hand. I am very disappointed that my WC no longer has him in the MPN network. He and the staff at Advance Care Specialists are respectful, easy to communicate with, helpful, professional... wonderful. Thank you Dr. Kim!
