I saw Dr. Kim for an incontinence problem. I was very impressed by the depth and specificity of her knowledge. I had previously been to two other GI doctors who referred me on to Dr. Kim. She quickly grasped my problem and discussed options for me in detail. She was caring as well as informative.

When I read reviews on Dr. Kim, I was very hesitant to go to her. I spoke with my doctors, and they said I would be in great hands. The 1st time I met Dr. Kim, she came in pretty serious, but then she listened to my story and all that I was going through. I started crying, and I then saw a compassionate person. My 2nd time, was for the stimulation trial procedure. All that was there, was so nice, Dr. Kim was very patient and explained everything as she did it. I would highly recommend her.
