Ballwin, MO |
Dr. Kim doesn't have much of a bedside manner, but he's a good doctor. The women that work the front desk at his Greenville clinic are rude and poor representatives of his practice. It's impossible to make an appointment to see him less than two months in the future - I've ended up in the hospital...more

I've seen Dr. Kim 3 times--not pleased with him this last time. He seemed in a hurry and a little impersonal, didn't seem too interested in my condition. I found the woman who schedules tests to be almost rude in her actions and manner.
