Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I've been contacting this office for weeks by phone and website, trying to get someone to call me back about a very serious bariatric surgical issue that I need fixed immediately (not due to these doctors) yet no one will call me back. The receptionist says I have to pay $300 that's not covered by insurance just to consult with the doctors AND have to go through the entire program (many months) before I could get my issue fixed. If they treat potential patients this way, I want no part of it.

I had surgery with Dr. Keith Kim two years ago today and I can honestly say I made the BEST choice! He is an amazing surgeon. He is attentive and caring. I had a minor complication and Dr. Kim got to the ER before my family and friends to check on me. He stayed with me during an exam and continued to make frequent checks on me through out the day. His PA Michelle and RN Sharon are both AMAZING as well. I can not thank Dr Kim and his team enough!

The Office requires a $600 fee that is NOT covered by insurance. This is over and above the co-pays required by insurance.
