I have been going to Dr. Kim for over 8 years now, and have always found him to be a competent, caring and great pain management specialist. He was always willing to listen to me, and would suggest new meds if he felt what I was currently taking was not working. Highly recommend!

Doctor Kim reviewed my MRI and stated he would expedite a referral to a neurologist. A week later after numerous phone calls, emails, his office has yet to even make a referral.

Dr. Kim and staff have been very helpful especially Olivia who has been very polite and helpful with my back pain. They seem to always have a very good attitude

Do not come to this office! They treat you like cattle. All they care about is getting people in and out as fast as they can to make more money. The staff is rude and always messes up on billings! They are trying to make me pay $300 in fake charges. I am reporting them.

The only thing missing were leeches and a bloodletting. The RF Neurotomy proposed as treatment was the most barbaric 'medical procedure' I've ever experienced. You'll see winged monkeys fly out my ears an play croquet b/f I ever step foot in that office again. The good Doctor ran out of the room was never seen again after his failed RF N attempt...sent his PA to follow-up visit just to tell me 'it didn't work'.

Listen to my concerns and needs, and acted upon them.
