Just finished up disc replacement surgery for my wife. Could not disagree more with the previous reviewer who did not appreciate Dr Kims bedside manner. He has been thorough, authoritative, and always open for Q&A. My neighbor recommended him to us - have nothing but positives to say about the experience. Michael & K

Waited 95" for a short unpleasant mtg. Kim raced thru a cursory explanation of my condition while ignoring questions. After 2-3 minutes of lecture he permitted brief Q&A. I left shaken by Kim's intimidating behavior. Followed Kim's orders and underwent insurance-required treatment from an assoc who was nearly as bad as Kim. Kim has poor "bedside manner". I don't know if he's an effective Dr since I couldn't bring myself to return to a Dr I mistrusted for actual treatment (spinal surgery).

I was disappointed with Dr. Kim. I was referred for an urgent surgical consult for severe central foraminal and lateral stenosis at 3 + lumbar levels. It took 5 weeks to get an urgent appointment. I waited over two hours to see Dr. Kim. Dr. Kim did not examine me. He looked at MRIs and CT. Said i urgently needed surgery and would require 6 months before i could return to my profession. His answer to every question i had was no, you can do that Time with the dr was under 3 minutes.

I was sent to Dr. Petty after a fail L3-4-5 surgery to Dr. Kim. Dr Kim done surgery on L3-C4 and replace L3-4-5. But upper spin nothing could be done. My Family Dr. Said No and sent me to another Dr. Dr. Kim was so mad and kicked me out , Bye just listen to my Family Dr. Dr Kim said never come back. Now I'm in a Wheelchair. Thanks Dr. Kim All I want was help, And now I've stoped work and looking to a short life due to not walking. And giving up. If he would have listened I could be working

Failed back surgery. Back hurts constantly, Also, have back spasms every time I stand and walk. He messed up nerves leading from spine, down outer left leg, foot and 4 of my 5 toes. He was discourteous when I told him about the numbness and cold feelings. He spoke very condescending to me. I wouldn't sent my worst enemy to him. Smug.
