Dr. Kim saw me as a patient in ER. I believe he was honest with me regarding surgery advice for gall stones. He communicated with me later that day regarding Pancreatitis and high liver results. I would trust this doctor and his knowledge if I ever needed to see him again for my health. Best of all, he turned out to be a needed blessing in my life, because I think he's a good person, also.

I recently had my gallbadder out. He was referred to me by my primary care physician. He had a great bedside manner. He is a great surgeon and has an excellent staff especially Molly and Allie. Dr Kim and staff were quick to answer questions both before and after surgery. I would highly recommend him.

In the first surgery Dr. Kim performed on me (an emergency) he saved my life. This is not an exaggeration. When he opened me up, I was a sea of blood; having lost 9 units of blood, I required both Dr. Kim's expertise and that of another surgeon and more than six hours on the table. He saved my life. The second surgery was not an emergency but an important one to correct a hernia from a previous surgery. He, his team, his office and his skills cannot be rated too highly. He IS the best!
