Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This guy was a total waste of time and money. Did nothing, not even listen to patient's heart with a stethoscope then says we need to schedule an appointment in Odessa. Charges $400 for three minutes of conversation. Scheduled an appointment and they canceled and never rescheduled despite promising to do so. I rescheduled and they canceled a second time and promised to reschedule. Three weeks later and nothing. When I call a third time his staff hangs up on me and never calls back. Dr. Kim may be a decent doctor, but his practice is a steaming hot mess. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time.

Dr. Kim and his staff are wonderful. After visiting my primary care physician, she was able to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kim's office for the same day. Within 3 hours I had been through several tests and scheduled for an angiogram the next day at ORMC. The staff made my visit very pleasant, and it is obvious that they enjoy working with each other and love what they do. Dr. Kim was very courteous and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff to my friends and family.

Dr. Kim is my dad's cardiologist and he is exemplary. He has saved my dad's life more times than I can count. I am an L.V.N. and there are alot of doctors I just flat out don't trust, but I would choose Dr. Kim to take care of me if the need should ever arise. He is just awesome. Thank you Dr. Kim for taking such good care of my Dad and our family as well. Debbie McDaniel, L.V.N. Texas Tech Internal Medicine, Permian Basin, Odessa, Texas.
