I went to Dr. Kim in mid-May 2016 based on a referral to have my sinuses/septum checked for physical blockage. Dr. Kim spent no more than two minutes with me. He asked if I had a sinus headache at the time I saw him. Since I did not, he told me to come back when I had a headache. For me, that means getting another referral, driving 100 miles back to Fairbanks, and having to plan for all that. How do you plan when you are going to have a headache? He then said there was nothing he could do for me
