Dr. Kim is one of the best doctors I’ve seen in awhile. She really took her time to understand my issue and gave her honest opinion. I was a nervous wreck when I walked in her office and she just turned that around. She’s very empathetic and is willing to find ways to help.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kim’s for several years. She has done an excellent job treating my nasal polyps and other ENT issues. She has been extremely honest, caring and thorough in ways many doctors in my experience have not. The treatments she has recommended have been very effective and her bedside manner is fantastic! She listens carefully to the patient and takes time with them. I never feel rushed, and her explanations and treatments make sense! -Andy

While recovering from a double mastectomy my 8 year old developed a terrible ear infection. Medicine wouldn't help. She was in so much pain and I was in bed recovering. My husband found Dr. Kim from our Pediatrician. If you are as picky as I am, I only chose Dr's who are efficient, loving, and enthusiast. I can not recommend Dr. Kim enough. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of my baby.

Went to see Dr Kim today for a throat issue. Her office staff are kind and courteous. Dr Kim went over and above to listen to my concerns and put them at ease. She was extremely friendly and patient. I was completely satisfied with Dr Kim and would recommend her over and over to my friends and family Ron Goldburg- Wilmette IL

Both of my boys are Dr. Kim's patients since they were 2.5 years old (10 and 7 now). My family was "blessed" with adenoid / tonsil and ear problems so my boys needed a surgery at the age of 3. Dr. Kim has performed the surgery on both of my boys. The quality of life for my kids has dramatically improved post surgery. We can't thank her enough. Dr. Kim is wonderful doctor; she is empathetic, thorough, but playful with the kids. She also treats you like a partner in problem resolution. 10 stars!

Dr. Kim has been taking care of my family for years. I have had problems with ongoing sinus infections over the years, Dr. Kim always knows the right remedies of medications and therapies to get me healthy again. She has great staff working with her who care about the well being of the patient and Dr. Kim has a great down to earth personality which makes me and my family comfortable in seeing her as our ENT. Very knowledgeable in her field!

Dr. Kim is a hidden treasure, she's an excellent ENT doctor. It is rare to find a doctor that cares as much and is as nice. Dr. Kim listens and works in a way that works for the patient while being serious and careful. I found Dr. Kim from her earlier positive reviews and she matched those reviews and more. Finding a doctor that is kind, good, and caring, especially a specialist, is not easy these days. She helped me to understand a chronic issue and proactively helped to treat it.

We went to visit for my son allergy (possibly). She did not check much and start to tell son there is possibility of some kind of cancer (Yes, I agree anyone has that possiblity but this is not right way to treat patient). That alone make me very uncomfortable.
