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.
