i am a nurse and i had a minor procedure with Dr. Kim. other doctors wanted to do surgery on me but Dr. Kim was able to work with me and did a procedure with her needle that took away all my pain the very next day! when she called me the next day to see how i was doing, i wanted to kiss her and hug her over the phone. she's outstanding and really listens to what you want and works with your needs. go see Dr. Kim before you get any surgery!

I love Dr. Kim and her entire staff. I have seen many pain management doctors over the years due to changes in insurance but Dr. Kim is the only person that I trust with my back and neck pain. Dr. Kim and her entire staff of wonderful women are so kind and compassionate. When dealing with chronic pain, compassion is something that makes a huge difference for us patients. In addition, Dr. Kim is one of the few Ivy League trained specialists and it shows. She knows her stuff!

Dr kim is one of the best pain doctors my dad has had. He used to have throat cancer 20 yrs ago & is also a survivor, But he was always in pain afterwards. He took so many pain meds sometimes 4 to 5 times a day and it did nothing. We first visited Dr Kim last yr in June & she was very friendly & understanding. She took him off diluded & give him perocet, month later gave him an injection then another one a month after. Let's just say he's down to only one pill a day I highly recommend her !

Dr. Ruby Kim is a fantastic doctor! I have been seeing her for 4 years now. She has been so instrumental in being able to identify my source of pain areas that nobody else could! Dr. Kim's the best at what she does. Always compassionate & concerned on what's best for my pain levels. I have never met another doctor who truly cared about my pain issues other than her! I highly recommend her. Best doctor ever!

Dr. Kim's bedside manner, thoughtfulness, and insight into my pain points were all fantastic, but the real winner was her technique in treating my wrist pain. If you know anything about PRP injections, you know that they are very painful. Dr. Kim's injections was by far, the least painful procedure I had done in comparison to all the past doctors I've had w/ the same procedure. And now my wrist pain has gone down enough that I can comfortably exercise once again. Thank you Dr. Kim!!

I was one Dr. Kim's patients for a little over a month, but I won't be anymore. She was an absolutely terrible doctor, but (if it's even possible) her front office staff is even worse. She took me off a medication that worked well and put me on one that made me violently sick, then refused to change the prescription back. She also refused to give me any prescriptions whatsoever when she knew that I did not have any pain medication left (my arm was recently severed in a car accident)
