Dr kim saved my Dad's life. I have had too major surgeries done by him also. I have never had another doctor with his bedside matter. He treated me like family. He is a conservative doctor and never rushes into surgery. He even made me get a second opinion just to play it safe. I feel so lucky to have met this man.

Overbooks all clinic appointments and you are made to wait anywhere from 1-3 hours. He is a highly skilled doctor, but this lack of respect for his patients is unacceptable and unreasonable. Mind you, this is my first review for his office and after this has happened for the past 4 appointments I have had, I feel it only right to give my honest review albeit dissatisfied. One thing to note, Dr. Kim stated that this is "just how it is" and "not to make any plans if I have an appointment again".
