in Pittsburg, CA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Kim's for about 2.5 years. I have found Dr. KIM to be an excellent Doctor who is kind compassionate, and who speaks to me with respect. I would give him 5 stars.
in Walnut Creek, CA |
I believe that doctors and patients should have an honest relationship. Dr Kim lied to me, kept parading me thru various assistants who changed drugs on me that had me to the point of going crazy and thinking thoughts of suicide. If you can find a different doctor, you should do it.

Most unprofessional and rude medical office and disrespectful doctor.

I've switched insurances a lot and so I have had many pain specialists in my 7 years of chronic pain. I'm only 26 and would often at least initially have a lot of doubt cast on my condition and doctors would scoff at the high level of meds I was on to live a normal life after several injuries and car accidents but Dr. Kim from day 1 was extremely compassionate and caring, he listens carefully and then approached my pain from every direction and helped me get to my most functional in yrs. .

He spoke with me not at me. He took the time to look directly at me when speaking. I felt comfortable around him and I knew I was being considered not judged.

I am very upset. Yesterday my urine test was positive for a couple of drugs I've NEVER taken. Obviously a felony committed in the bathroom. A person behind me obviously traded my specimen for theirs. There were about ten other specimens in the cupboard. I asked the nurse outside to take them out of there and she just gave me an annoyed look. I don't know why Dr. Kim didn't ask me for a new specimen. I was too shocked to think that. He said he would recheck and I should call him in a few.
