Had my first colonoscopy at WA Gastroenterology in Nov. 2019. The whole process was nerve wracking because of horror story you hear and the prep process could be confusing. However, take your time to make sure you follow the written procedures and ask questions if needed. The 5 stars is for Dr. Kim for his professionalism. He made sure to answer my questions, never rushed me. Afterwards, he came and explained more about the procedure. Overall, I feel confident I’m his expertise.

Dr. Kim recently performed an endoscopy on me. The environment of the Eastside Endoscopy Center is favorable for conduct of the procedure. Anaesthesia was administered efficiently and lasted no more than 2 hours. Dr. Kim performed the endoscopy after a pre-procedure briefing and then reviewed the film/photos with me at the end of the procedure. This was a good procedure experience in a surgical setting. I have always found Dr. Kim to be a highly capable practitioner.

I had absolutely horrible experience with Dr. Kim. He and his team very rude and treating the patients with any respect. The one thing what they are looking for just to make money on you.

Dr. Kim was thorough, asking lots of questions and explaining things carefully. He uses a transcriptionist so he can give full attention to a patient, which is important. I would give him more stars if possible.
