Charlotte, NC |
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.
