Dr. Kim performed my surgery after I suffered a serious fall. I underwent cervical spine stabilization through instrumentation and bone graft, and also a laminectomy to address congenital spinal stenosis. No complications and 4 months late I am pain free in my back/neck. He answered all my questions, was professional, went over my procedure in detail and explained it in terms I could understand. My family and I are very grateful and pleased with him. -23 year old female, polyortho trauma
Dr kee kim is a sensitive, caring professional neurosurgeon. He hears and listens to his patients. He performed C Spine surgery on me September 30, 2015. I had 100% faith in his capability. My surgery went well from the beginning and through my follow up visits. No compilations. It was 100%successful. because God guided his skilled hand's. I am 78years and I have the utmost confidence in Dr Kee Kim. Thank you Dr Kim and your amazing staff. Marie S. Khela

Dr Kee Kim is a awesome Dr. God has given him a gift. My life is like new and 95% of my original problem is gone. Dr Kim did a 3 level cervical fuse and I'm like a new person. I struggled with chiropractors, traction units, epidermal shots on a continual basis. I could not stay far away from a one of the chiropractors I used bc my neck was a mess. I'm at 100 days almost post operation and it's the best decision I ever made concerning my neck problem. I'm fully greatful! Pastor Brandon

Dr Kee Kim does not answer questions, is dismissive and arrogant. He treated me like I was wasting his time. The more questions I had, the more he treated me with disrespect.
