Patient Comments (2)
Dr Kim & I spoke on the phone with my husband in his hospital room. I'm also recuperating from the accident & unable to be with my husband as I am in another state. His condescending attitude was unbelievable. He said he didn't even have to discuss this with me. Such disrespect from a professional DOCTOR/SURGEON is reprehensible. I asked is he would call me after the procedure & he said no only if there is a problem. I asked if a nurse would call to let me know the outcome
