Dr. Kim is great
He took his time to educate me in regards to my pain. He made sure I fully understood reason of taking the medicine and side effects. Follow ups are quick yet takes his time to ask about my improvements. Also I had to bring my 3yo and 13 month old daughters. The younger one cried obviously from hating all doctors naturally. But he patiently and VERY friendly smiled and made the follow up quick. That's basically my deal breaker as a mom of 3.
