Long time patient - but due to CV 19 just did my first video call with him. Tech worked very smooth, but, more importantly Dr. Kim was excellent (as usual) in making sure to study my past medical history, discuss my current issues making sure to ask lots of questions to get diagnosis right, then gave recommendations to move forward. Alwasy appreciate the time and focus he gives. Great Doctor.

Dr. Kim is thoughtful in his diagnosis and recommendations. He looks for a solution versus prescribing a pill to numb or cover up the issue/pain. He considers the whole body health. I recommend him often!

I have been a patient of Dr Kim for 18 months. He is arguably the most thorough physician I have ever been treated by. He is kind, caring and willing to listen and then help set a course of action. He always reviews your past visits and is continually trying to improve your response to therapy. He communicates by email when you write to him. He has been a very steady support during an especially past year. Thank you Dr Kim! Office staff terrific, always responsive with scheduling or getting answers to questions. 5 stars!

Dr. Kim was awesome! Took his time getting to know me and to see if I had any immediate concerns he should know about. He said he will always ?recommend? but never ?force? a procedure or test. He was caring, kind, thorough, created a ?calm? atmosphere for my first-ever visit. His staff was wonderful & friendly and they go out of their way to make sure all your questions are answered. Dr. Kim also saw my adult daughter (her first visit since leaving our former dr) and he kept her mind at ease and answered all her questions...He even invites me into the room to ask me if I had any questions regarding my daughter (?girl stuff?) and made us both feel very comfortable. I wish I had started going to this doctor from the start. He was HIGHLY recommended by our pediatrician. Dr. Kim is the whole package! No white coat...no ?Mr. Serious Giy Who Makes You Nervous? ? Nope, not this guy! He is wonderful. Wish all physicians we like him. He?s real, not puffed up, KNOWS HIS STUFF (knows all the sp

Dr Kim was very present while attending to my concerns. He listened and diagnosed the problem within a few minutes. I was hoping I could add him as my PCP but found that he is not taking on new patients. Hopefully, when he does have room on his patient roster I can add him as my PCP.
