Patient Comments (7)
It would be one thing if she had poor bedside manner but an excellent doctor; however, she is not. She lowered my dose of antidepressants without having seen or speaking to me in a year, and essentially told me a year prior that my health concerns weren't founded, and rather because I have anxiety. Lastly, she and her office never called regarding the results of one of my tests and I spent days without my antibiotics. She is extremely condescending and invalidates concerns of her patients.

I'm really surprised at the 2/5 rating! Dr. Kim was so personable and friendly. She was easy to talk to, sharp and attentive, and very proactive in looking at my test results and diagnosing what was going on. I was sad to leave PAMF for my work's Kaiser plan, and miss the great service I had with her.

Had to see Dr. Kim because my regular Dr. was out of town. She has horrible bedside manner. Very cold. Barely listened to my symptoms before she (improperly) diagnosed me. Still feeling horrible days later so going back to my regular doctor today. Dr. Kim wasted my time and I will never go back to her.

Condescending, non-personable and non informative .

I was looking for a new doctor and found one. The low reviews on this website are confusing to me. It seems that the other people who took this survey maybe reading too much into their visit...or are dumb. This doctor is personable, funny and easy to talk to.

I went to her with text book symptoms of a galbladder attack and had an abnormal liver function . Still she sent me home to take some omeprazole as she thought it was only my stomache.

Not recommended if you have fibromyalgia. I saw her for an unrelated issue. When she pulled up my records on the computer and saw I was being prescribed Flexeril for FM by another doctor her whole attitude towards me changed. She accused me of abusing the drug because I liked the fact that it helped me sleep, in addition to greatly reducing pain and stiffness. I left the appointment feeling abused, and totally uncomfortable placing my health in her care.
