What People Say About Dr. Nam Kim, MD

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.
