What People Say About Dr. Johnstone Kim, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr Kim has a great bedside manner. He gives concrete facts yet is sensitive to the severity of retinal detachment diagnosis. He goes above and beyond what most doctors do these days when caring for his patients in our experience. I trust and value his opinion

Was at Midwest Retina a little over 2 hours. Most of it was waiting. Dr. Kim spent approximately 10 minutes with me and most of that time he was on the computer.

Dr. Kim is a very good eye doctor. He is also a very kind person and will explain things to you so you can understand what is going on. His office staff are very accommodating and the wait time is good. I've got eye problems from my diabetes. He has saved my vision. Highly recommended.
