Patient Comments (5)
Rising Sun, MD |
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.

Dr. Kim is not only a highly qualified excellent surgeon but one of the nicest people you will ever meet. His bedside manners and attention to detail exceed your expectations. He is trustworthy, honest and shows the highest integrity. He has served our family in several operative situations and even provided life saving measures in an ER event. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. I would trust him with my checkbook. We are very blessed to have him in our community.

Dr. Kim listens and addresses your concerns and Medical issues without rushing you out the door. I have never trusted a doctor or surgeon as much as I trust him. The staff is caring and attentive to your needs. Lots of knowledge at this practice.
in Aberdeen MD |
Listens and addresses my concerns with respect and care. The staff is very caring and will do whatever they can to help you. Best practice in Harford County!
Rising Sun, MD |
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.
