What People Say About Dr. Ki Wan Kim, MD
Reply
Dr Kim is such a wonderful doctor! He is responsive, and understanding, and clear in his approach and answers. He has helped make this difficult road to recovery so much better. He has been so kind and caring. We are very lucky to have him. He didnt at anytime make us feel bad for getting a second opinion, and didnt push his approach and was very patient with us as we asked him questions.
