What People Say About Dr. Louis Kim, MD
Reply
Dr. Kim performed my ACoM brain aneurysm clipping and I was discharged from the hospital 2 days later. My recovery has been smooth and I am returning to work slowly, after only 2 weeks of recovery. To say that he is an amazing surgeon and cares about his patients is an understatement. He is my neurosurgeon for life. Highly recommended.

I cannot speak highly enough regarding Dr Kim. Outstanding expertise, compassionate care, superlative skills and knowledge. He took on my son's case when no-one else within 200 miles would touch it. I believe my child continues to walk on this planet due to this man's care. In addition, his team and the staff at Harborview Medical Center were all wonderful. From the staff that checked him in on many occasions to the radiology staff to nurses in outpatient to ICU. I do not have sufficient words.
