Terrible!
I had an appointment with Dr Kim today at 4pm. When I arrived at his office there was a line at reception, I waited more than 15 minutes in line while the receptionist chatted with a another person in line in some Asian language. When I was finally acknowledged I was told the doctor was not in!!! They were rude and finally offered me an appointment at the end of the month. I was upset that they did not try to call me, as I had to take the afternoon off work. Terrible attitude by the office staff. Lousy place, won’t return.

I took my son to see Dr Kim. Waited forever to get an appt and in the day of the appt he refused to see us because my son is a child. I was practically in tears knowing how long it would take to get another appt. I asked if he could just see him this once then refer us to another Dr. He wouldn’t even see us to tell us himself. The receptionist felt bad and asked the other Dr who was there that day if he could squeeze us in. He did!! Dr Waki is the best. Should have started with him first. Made my son feel comfortable and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. I wish every Dr was that patient. Keep your kids away from Dr Kim.

Poor bedside manner. Less than stellar in his explanations and “I don’t know” is a common answer to most of the questions we had for Dr. Kim.

I highly recommend Dr. Kim! After years of suffering from chronic sinus infections, I finally made an appointment with Dr. Kim and found him to be knowledgeable, experienced, and patient. He took the time to thoroughly assess my problem. Before Dr. Kim, I was bouncing around doctors who are prescribed allergy pills for me. Now, I can finally sleep through the night and I’m not constantly tired anymore. Thank you Dr. Kim!

I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and Dr. Kim removed my thyroid. Before I chose him to do surgery, I met with many other ENTs in the area. I picked Dr. Kim because he was friendly and seemed to be the most knowledgeable. My thyroid removal went as smoothly as I could have hoped. He even came in on the weekend to make sure I was okay. Having cancer is a scary thing but I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Kim as my doctor. I am happy I chose him.

My teenage son's nose was hit and broken while playing in a baseball game. Thankfully, Dr Kim and staff were very professional and friendly. Dr Kim was very detailed on explaining and performing the procedures. Thank you Dr Kim. My son's nose looks even better than before.

I had been to countless amounts of doctors to see what was specifically wrong with me for my sinus pressure and straining of my voice and none of them could give me any hope or answers. I had one doctor sit at a computer and barely examined me and did absolutely nothing for me. I met with Dr. Kim and absolutely loved him! He gave me answers about everything and checked me thoroughly to see what was wrong with me! I recommend him to anyone who has ENT issues or reconstructive issues
