Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kim "We offer today's newest advances in care to help those suffering from chronic and often disabling joint and autoimmune disorders.

My approach to medicine is to listen carefully to each patient's concerns and treat him or her with the same care as I would a member of my family. Many of my patients have rare and debilitating chronic illnesses so I see them often and form strong relationships with them. I enjoy the challenge of finding solutions that help improve their quality of life. In my leisure time, I enjoy golf, skiing, cycling and many other outdoor activities."
