Fairfax, VA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Kim to my family and friends. He is caring and concerned about my care. He explains everything in detail and provides the best options for care. His staff is top notch as well.
Dr. Kim is a caring doctor who spends a lot of time listening to patients - a rare thing! I always feel like my concerns are important to him. He works hard to help me with serious asthma and allergy issues, and I have complete faith in him. His staff is also very attentive and kind. The entire office runs like a well-oiled machine with heavy doses of caring and thoroughness, interspersed with a little humor to brighten your day. I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff.

Allergy Partners is the absolute best. When I first came to see Dr. Kim, I literally just started crying when he entered the room. My allergies had gotten so bad, it was killing me. It was completely interfering with my life. Two years later, I feel great. I now just get my allergy shots once a month and I almost never have any symptoms! The people at Allergy Partners are awesome. They always try to make my shot visits easy and quick. I can't recommend AP highly enough!
in Aldie, VA |
We have been seeing Dr. Kim for many years and have referred many friends to him. He has been wonderful in treating our son for seasonal allergies and our daughter, for food allergies. In addition to him, we love the amazing staff who work with him. We are always so thankful for his patient and comforting nurses who administer our son's allergy shots. Getting shots is never fun, but they make it as easy as possible for him. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kim.
in Fairfax, VA |
My son's pediatrician referred us to Dr. Kim four years ago. Now my husband and I also see Dr. Kim. He's a great doctor! He takes the time to make sure his patients understand their allergies and treatment. He's a good listener, professional, very knowledgeable, and even has a sense of humor!
in Fairfax, VA |
I was referred by my primary care physician for help with snoring. Dr. Kim and his whole staff are great! My snoring is better and I discovered that my allergy to cats is not just in my head. I am now being treated and looking forward to sleeping better. I still hate cats though.
in Fairfax, VA |
Dr. Kim is extremely personable and will go the extra "mile" for his patients. I had an allergic reaction one time in a movie theater and went to the closest urgent care. On my way, I called Dr. Kim's office and asked whether or not I should go. He asked me to have the doctor at urgent care to call him, which of course, was after his normal business day. Dr. Kim spoke with the urgent care doctor to make sure I was getting the proper treatment for the reaction. He also called me later at home.
in Fairfax, VA |
Dr. Kim has diagnosed my son's multiple food allergies and environmental allergies. He makes it easy to understand and works with us to try to find a way to manage his eczema as well. He responds quickly to any questions or concerns we have had over the years. His office staff is friendly and goes above and beyond to help kids through the process.

He takes the time to get to know each patient. Even though he is the only doctor and it is an obviously busy practice, it still feels personal. The office staff and nurses are wonderful! So sweet, attentive, and caring. Not just about why you are there but you as a person.

Chantilly, VA |
I've been under under Dr. Kim treatment for my allergy for a few years now. Everything is going well so far.
in Chantilly, VA |
Dr. Kim is great! My initial exam was a very thorough and the range of allergens tested was quite impressive (took up my entire back!). Rather than going straight into recommending allergy shots, he prescribed medication and discussed alternative methods to dealing with my allergies which I appreciated - allergy shots take a lot of commitment. I ended up taking the shots because I was allergic to about everything and his office couldn't be more accommodating - open wait times, amazing staff!
in Manassas,va |
Dr. Kim helps me in many kinds of ways.He makes a few chuckles with the kids and are a all around great guy. from 9yr old patient Dr. Kim gives his full attention to his patients - explains what he is doing, why and how the patient is effected by their allergies. Dr. Kim and all his staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. They are dedicated to the health and wellness of all their patients. I would recommend Dr. Kim to anyone looking for an allergist.

Dr Kim is fantastic. He has an excellent bedside manner. My son has been going to his office for the last year and I recommend anyone I know to go to his office. Dr Kim is great with kids and thorough. He takes the time to explain everything to you and does not seem like he is just out to make a buck off of you. The office staff is excellent too. 20 mins notice and you're in...fantastic! Honestly I can't say enough good things about the nurses, doctors and staff in this office.
