Went in for surgery with Dr.Kim and he refused my surgery because he said I was “too anxious” and cancelled my surgery. I talked to over four surgeons and trusted his opinion over anyone else. I fully regret that decision and would not recommend him to anyone.

Did not listen to concerns. Misdiagnosed the problem and resulted in excruciating pain and an ER visit for correct diagnosis. Office staff was rude and dismissive.
