I've taken my parents to Dr. Kim for past 15 years. Although English wasn't their first language, staff in the office were very friendly and patient, which made the office experience very comfortable. Also, Dr. Kim is meticulous in explaining the diagnosis and the treatment plans, I feel confident taking my parents to Dr. Kim for any GI problems.

I've been Dr. Kim's patient since I was in my early twenties. I'm now in my early 40's. He is the ONLY Dr. who properly diagnosed me. He is extremely thorough, takes his time to explain your diagnosis, and talks about the different options you have medically. He LISTENS and trusts what I tell him. He has impeccable bedside manner and ALWAYS follows up with a phone all if you need him to. He is an EXCELLENT doctor and I highly recommend him. I tell him that I hope he never retires.

I’ve seen Dr. Kim for more than 10 years and he has been excellent in every way. He is very knowledgeable, patient, friendly and caring. He explains lab results to me in details every time and answers my questions in simple terms. He would devise a plan for any of my medical problems and he is up to date on new medications. I would recommend him to anyone who needs his expertise.

He was very polite and took time to explain the results from the medical procedures. He also explained the lab results in simple terms so the patient could understand. He was a good listener and provided answers to the questions I had.
