Dr. Kim is organized in her office, timely in her visits, friendly, extremely helpful and she really knows her stuff! I actually left another practice in Fresno to follow her to her new practice. Today I was at her office and many other patients were speaking of her reliability for keeping appointments and seeing them in a timely manner. They had complaints of other doctors cancelling appointments and not following through with their regimen of shots they were supposed to be getting regularly.
