I've seen Dr Kim on 2 occasions and will have surgery in October. Very attentive, professional, knowledgeable. He listen to all my concerns and has answered all my questions. I've emailed him on several occasions and he's always gotten back to me. My procedure will involve going through the stomach which I was very nervous about because I'm very overweight. He addressed my concerns and put me at ease. He operated on my brother-in-law and he couldn't be more complementary.

Wonderful experience with Dr Kim, from first visit through the triple disc fusion in my neck (C4-7). He and the staff at the Spine Center all deserve 5 stars!
in Torrance, CA |
Dr. Kim has taken excellent care of me. I had a herniated L5 disc that was pinching a nerve in my leg. He gave me the options but also presented me with what he thought would ultimately happen. I chose to go with surgery instead of waiting, and it's been the best experience ever. My leg pain is gone and am getting back to being active again, under his careful supervision. Thank you Dr. Kim
