Dr. Kim says

Our practice tries to help everybody and sometimes we cannot help everybody. I try to be honest what is available and experimental. Over years, I have learn to be a better physician and understand that we are in difficulty situation with insurances and health care. We will not give up on trying to help patients as best we can. That is why we are active in clinical research and policy to help current and future patients.

Your positive and negative feedback are important to me and I will listen to it.

Im not sure what office person was in, I have been a patient of Dr Kim in the Bryn Mawr office for years and found the staff to be extremely helpfil and friendly. I Have seen things change over the years on the way drs practice, however you can blame politics and insurance companys for m9st of that change not the drs....for the most part the drs hands are tied as to how they can help a patient.If your insurance wont pay for what u need take it up with them not Dr Kim.I wont go to anyone else
I was very pleased with Dr.Kim. He was honest with how he could help what he could do and what he could not do.He is truely caring and wants to help his patients by finding out the root of where the pain is coming from not just hand out pain medication.I think some of the reviews are unfair stating that the wait time is too long for appointments,however they want to be fit in to his schedule right away....you cant have it both ways.I would recommend Dr.Kim to anyone..He is one of the best Drs

Dr. Kim is always rushed because he is over booked. He is over booked because everyone wants or needs to see him immediately which lets you know that he is good at his job.
in Wilmington, De |
First appointment was great. Second appointment rushed, questions not answered. Never returns calls for persciption authorization was told point blank he's too busy and will not have his staff deal with insurance or pharmacy. Waited over 24 hours for an emergency call to the office and have yet to get a call back. I would not recommend this practice to those that have chronic pain and could require immediate response. Staff is rude and confrontational.

Dr. Kim says...

I strive the offer the best for my patients in the management of chronic pain, spasticity, and integrative medicine. With my group, we offer the cutting edge technology and advancements with minimal invasive spine procedures, implants for pain control, and evidence based integrative medicine. Please go to websites for our practices in center for interventional pain and ageless md mainline.

I trained at University of Pennsylvania and was an assistant professor before I went into private practice. We are involved in clinical research, write chapters and textbooks, and active in the medical societies with lectures and policy at a national level. We are involved in international and national consensus panel for neurostimulation and intrathecal drug therapies.

I have been listed as TOP Doctor by multiple groups in DE and PA in pain medicine and anesthesiology.  My best awards are from my patients that comment that "I gave them my life back.

Our practice is multidisciplinary with attempting to offer a comprehensive approach to spine and pain problems. As much as we offer the minimal invasive and interventional approach, we seek to find the cause of your pain and offer solutions outside of surgery. Integrative medicine approach is now part of our practice.

My training continues as I am getting a masters in integrative medicine at University of South Florida and received advanced fellowship training at anti-aging and regenerative medical society.

I am active in martial arts and triathlons as long as my wife allows me to train.
