She is kind of mean to the patient who is not fluent English. I’ve never met like her in any hospitals in Chicago .. so disappointed.

One of the other reviewers took the words right out of my mouth. My experience was extremely negative. She was unhelpful, arrogant and extremely unprepared. Do not recommend her at all. Total waste of time. And money.

Our son sees Dr Kim regularly for treatment of his severe peanut allergy and have found Dr Kim to be very approachable, knowledgeable, and a good listener. My four year old feels very comfortable with her.

Dr. Kim took the time to answer all of my questions, and didn't perform unnecessary tests on me. I felt that she was very knowledgeable.

Dr. Kim was epicly arrogant and unhelpful. I was instructed by the office to not take antihistamines for 5 days before an appointment (despite having high environmental allergies). After a 5 minute discussion, she would not do an SPT food test so there were 5 days of unnecessary suffering and no concern on the part of Dr. Kim. Her lack of concern, empathy, information, and general approach were the worst combination I have ever encountered with a medical professional.

She acts like she thinks a highly-rated degree from a top medical school gives her permission to treat patients like garbage and be arrogant.. My wife came with 3 little children 10 minutes late to a far away location, Dr. Kim refused to see them, making them reschedule for weeks later. When seeing patient our 3 yr old, did not treat the history rather treated based only on test results, acted like a robot, regurgitated her textbook. Yes, knowledgeable, but doesn't treat patient like a human.
