Thank you for your kind words. I am so happy that I was able to help you before your condition worsened. I appreciate the vote of confidence, and you taking the time to write a review

Dr. Kim responding to the 04/09/16 review 

Thank you so much for your kind words. Central pain syndrome presents with myriad of symptoms often mimicking other disorders, so it can be tricky to diagnose. I am happy that I was able to help you and that you feel much better.

Dr. Kim responding to the 06/13/16 review 

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review and share your thoughts with other potential patients online. I am happy to hear that you had a good experience under my care.

Dr. Kim's kind and friendly manner put my 16yo at ease. He also put forth great effort to be as thorough as possible in exploring the reasons behind her issues. I am grateful for the time he spent with us to carefully explain his findings and any action we needed to take. I feel that Ocala is fortunate to have this talented and knowledgeable doctor right in town. It was also nice to not need to travel for testing such as the EEG and MRI which are right in the local facility.

I have suffered years of weird symptoms including sudden mental fog, dizziness, severe pain all over, especially pain in bladder. Have seen dozen doctors from all different specialties. Diagnoses were all over the place. At the end, I was told to go see a shrink which infuriated me. I lost faith. Then one of my friends recommended Dr. Kim. OMG ! He impressed me so much just on first visit. He was so familiar with all of my symptoms & explained to me concept of central pain syndrome. Impressive !

I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 15 years & have seen dozen neurologists over the years. Then I moved to Florida & became a patient of Dr. Kim. He impressed me so much just with my first visit - he was extremely knowledgeable & insightful and so well versed in all treatment options and spent lot of time going over pros & cons of each treatment option. I felt so comfortable with his recommendation and I overall feel so much better. I am so fortunate to find Dr. Kim as my doctor.
