What People Say About Dr. Richard Kim, MD
Reply
This man should be removed from practice. I have never in my life heard of a physician destroy every tenet of the Hippocratic oath. Can you imagine sending an 84 year old woman in for a scan which could determine life or death and then DISAPPEARING from contact for SEVEN DAYS without letting her know the results. Even the office staff was baffled at the cruelty. When he did finally surface, he answered no questions and pronounced there was nothing he could do for her. ZERO bedside manner. A FAIL
