Dr Kim is an amazing urologist. Absolutely love his demeanor, takes time to explain everything thoroughly. He is the best in Houston. He is so passionate about his patients, and takes extra time to make sure that every question is answered. Best doc I've ever had! HOWEVER, his office staff is incredibly rude. They are not punctual at all. Worst customer service I've ever had in Houston. My advice, hire a new team Dr. Kim! Don't need them dragging your office reputation down.

Fabulous Doctor! He patiently listens to your concerns and replies in an understandable manner. He makes you feel comfortable and is caring, attentive and professional. He is a highly skilled surgeon. He returns calls promptly and won't leave you wondering. He is thorough and trustworthy. I highly recommend Dr. Kim Urologist.

My father is a patient of Dr. Kim. After an unfavorable incident on last week, we were contacted immediately and the situation was apologized for and rectified. Mistakes can happen. We are grateful for the immediate response and correction.

Words cannot express how grateful my family and I are to Dr. Kim!!! Dr. Kim provided excellent care to me after I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He performed the Prostatectomy. I am now Cancer free. Dr. Kim visited me regularly during my hospital stay and explained everything concerning my condition in layman terms. Dr. Kim is a Phenomenal surgeon, whom I would recommend to anyone!!!! Thank you Dr. Kim!!!!! You saved my life!!!!! Johnnie Whaley

Doctor Kim is incredibly rude. He doesn't have time to spend a few minutes with his patients. Also seemed very uninformed after consulting with another urologist.
I am unsure of who this "patient" is, but any of my real patients or referring physicians can tell you that over the past 13 plus years, I have provided excellent care - giving every one of my patients the time and explanations needed to make sure they are well informed about their condition as well as their options going forward in a compassionate manner.
