This doctor has horrible bedside manners, he is very arrogant and does not listen to what patients are telling him. His quick assessment of my symptoms, almost cost me my life. He was wrong it is scary to think what if I listened to just him, I would dead.

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 twice because I couldn't get in to see him in a timely manner. When I asked if I could get in any sooner as I had had bloody diarrhea for weeks already, I was coldly told to go to the emergency room.

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.
