Dr. Daughter has very complicated neurological syndrome including intractable Epilepsy, severe Migraine. He had been to several Neurologists at many reputable university hospitals including mayo clinic. But they weren't able to help her. Whatever drugs they had her on didnt control her conditions or didnt tolerate the side effects. We were pretty much hopeless. Then we moved to Ocala and her new PCP recommended Dr. Kim. We were so impressed by him even on first encounter. He was so friendly and welcoming. He right away acknowledged our frustration & sense of hopelessness. He was very familiar with her case after reviewing her voluminous records. He pointed out some mistakes made in her prior treatments. He presented combination of new treatments we never heard of. OMG, in a matter 1 month, my daughter headache & seizures stopped like miracle. He is truly the best! My whole family loves him and we are forever grateful for his expertise and compassion.

True healer
My parents and my daughter and myself are all patients of Dr. Kim for the last 10+ years. We have been to lot of other doctors in different cities and states. But there is no doctor like Dr. Kim who is extremely well versed in so many areas of medicine even outside of Neurology. Most of all, he truly cares for his patients & he puts patient's well being before anything else. When I read some of the negative comments on line, it's truly upsetting. I don't know what planet these people came from. Obviously they don't know Dr. Kim like we do and obviously there must have been other agendas that had nothing to do with who truly Dr. Kim is. We don't care what other people's opinions are. We are 100% behind Dr. Kim's reputation

I appreciate him
I’ve been seeing Dr Kim for a few years. He listened to me about my migraines and said we will find what works. I also have neck issues and today started nerve injections. Fir the first time in 12 years- I have some relief. I email when I have an issue and typically get a response the next day. I’m so glad I gave him.

AWful Experience
Dr Kim did many tests due to dizzy episodes and neck pain. He wanted an MRI done at his office. I preferred my radiologist who uses an open MRI. He tells me that the radiologist did not have that MRI any longer. That turned out to be a lie. Apparently HE wanted Medicare funds, Many tests later he still has no explanation or answers. No referrals or direction. This guy wants your insurance ! I never went back

Great doctor.
Dr Kim is an excellent neurologist . He goes above and beyond to verify and treat me. I have narcolepsy and Dr Kim is the only doctor who said there is something more than sleep apnea here. He ordered DNA blood tests and sure enough I have narcolepsy genes. He may not be "Mr Sweet" but he certainly is a professional . I go to a doctor for his ability and knowledge and Dr Kim fulfills my list.

outstanding Neuro Doc
my mom was referred to Dr. Kim for progressive memory impairment. My had seen 3 other neurologists in the past who all blew her off saying nothing can be done. Dr Kim on the other hand was very empathetic with our frustration. He offered very thorough work up & came to conclusion that she had mixed Alzheimer as well as Lewy Body Dementia. My mom got on new Alzheimer med, Aduhelm. Despite all controversy over the medicine, Dr. Kim believed the medicine would help my mom. This, mom received 6 monthly infusions. OMG!! My mom cognition improved dramatically: she is lot more coherent & even hallucinations markedly decreased. I am so thankful to have Dr. Kim as her doctor

This dr is anti vaxxer and entire facility will not wear a mask even when asked to do so! No Covid protocols in place! Scammed my insurance for many tests before dr would schedule an injection. Dr made me wait several months to come back to do them. Extremely painful and was never told I’d be in pain. Thought I would pass out! Not one bit of relief and in more pain than ever. Have an appt with another neurologist dr. To see what this guy did to me!

Please do not waste your time at this facility. Entire staff is extremely rude, At first I thought well maybe today is just a bad day. Year into being seen at this office nothing has changed. Dr Lance Kim has zero bed side manor. Office will never return your phone calls, once you are able to connect with someone they blow you off. You are not appreciated her at all. They do not care for their patients!!

This is a review from a couple years ago. I came to Dr Kim just after diagnosis for a rare nuro disease. I had no insurance and was paying cash out of pocket. He was completely disinterested and callous towards my case. He refused to collaborate with other doctors in my team. I think possibly the bulk of his clients are applying for disability or going for sleep studies and maybe he's fine with them, in and out with no relationship or continued care, but if you need ongoing care my suggestion is drive to find another doctor. I know he's the only one in Ocala for certain things ( and so does he) but it's worth the drive to get decent care.

I would highly recommend Dr Kim. I have suffered from constant headaches for over 15 yrs. Seen numerous doctors in every field of medicine with at least 6 neurologists including 2 surgeries with no relief. From Ft Myers to Gainesville and no help. Seen Dr Kim first part of Jan. 2021 and within a week my headaches were gone. Most everything is done on site so no need to run all over town for xrays or MRI's. He is #1 in my book. I do know that you have to be recommended by your doctor to get an appt with him. On my first visit he said to me" there is a reason for this pain and I will get to the bottom of it", and he dam well did within a week. He also entered his information and email into my phone himself and told me to email him with any questions or problems. You will get a response within the hour.

My mom suffered severe mental status change out of blue. She had been to emergency rooms in two different hospitals. Nobody could figure out what was wrong with her. They kicked around theory about possible stroke etc but all tests came back negative. Then she was seen by Dr. Kim. He reviewed her records with fine tooth comb & found that she was taking wrong dosage of her narcolepsy med, Xyrem. Dr. Kim adjusted & cleaned up complicated med list, and we got our mom back. We are so grateful for Dr. Kim’s expertise & dedication.

My husband had been having issues with his left leg going numb. Granted it took a few months to get in, but we were able to. He was very polite and explained to my husband about the NCS and EMG that he would have done. They also were able to get my husband into the sleep clinic quickly.
