Dr. Kim performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes at the Center for Sight. The entire experience was excellent! My vision is great and for the first time in 50 years I can see without my glasses. Dr. Kim was an absolute professional, explained everything in detail, and very skilled. Every person I interacted with at Center for Sight was great.

Very professional and courteous There was no parking when I got there and I had to drive around till one opened up There was a man who walked in and his arm was bleeding I felt the front staff should have taken him to a private room and dressed his arm however he stood there until another patient directed him to sit until a staff person came to dress his arm in the lobby .. I think this could have been handled better. All staff were extremely helpful and informative Dr Kim was very professional and I appreciated his service

I have gone to Dr. Kim for a number of years and have always found him to be highly professional, extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He and his staff also have tremendous patience and success with me, since I am a nightmare patient who can't stand anyone or anything near my eyes. I just went for my annual exam yesterday and they were able to put drops in my eyes and take the pressure measurement---a true miracle, knowing how I am. I respect each and every one of them. A big thank you to Dr. Kim and his staff!

I am a snowbird and was referred by my optometrist to Dr. Kim for glaucoma. I had a good experience at Center for Sight in Englewood and really liked Dr. Kim and will come back next year. Would highly recommend.

He's probably knowledgeable but I would not know - I had 3 appts so far and Dr Kim must have spent a total of 8 mn with me. He can be less than diplomatic and sure could use going to charm school. Assistants are generally pretty good.

I had a great experience with those health care workers I came in contact. Zoey and Heather both get high ratings. Both were great at interacting with me in a very positive way. Dr. Kim did a great job at examining my eyes and explaining what and why's. I like the brochure explaing Dr. Kim's achievements and research. He and the brochure made me feel less anxious about the upcoming cataract surgery. Upon leaving I stop to discuss surgery dates and follow-up. The assistant put a lot of effort into getting dates and follow-up times to work for me. I like Center For Sight I would not hesitate to recommend CFS to a friend or relative.

Moved to Venice in April of 2020. Was scheduled for cataract surgery in Cincinnati prior to moving which was canceled due to covid 19. Thru research and reading reviews I contacted the Center for Sight and made an appointment to see Dr. Kim. I was totally impressed with Dr. Kim and the entire staff at the Center for Sight. The professionalism and care they give their patients is impressive. I couldn't have been in better hands to have my vision restored. Thank you Dr. Kim and the entire staff at the Center for Sight.

I was very nervous going inti the appointment. Everyone on staff was positive and understanding. Zoey was wonderful and reassuring. She along with Heather and Dr. Kim made sure I understood everything and explained each step clearly. After my procedure they kept me a while and checked to make sure everything had gone as exoected and it was safe to send me home.

I just had my first Glaucoma examination with Dr. Kim and frankly it was just plain enjoyable. He has all the equipment and does all the tests I've gotten used to with my doctors up north. He put me on a different medicine that has already made a difference. Just 24 hours later! My eyes don't hurt and my vision is clearer. Such a relief.
