    Bakersfield, CA |
    It has been a few weeks since my last appointment with Dr. Kim. I wanted to take my time to think about what I wanted to say instead of writing a rash review. I think Dr. Kim is a very intelligent man. My issue is that in talking with Dr. Kim, it is as if he has forgotten that he is dealing with a person. And when asking him a question, it was as if he felt attacked. Eye contact was minimal and he used a computer almost as if it was a barrier to him having true contact with me as a patient.

    I am very happy with the care I receive from Dr Kim. I feel he is very proactive in the care of my RA.
