Dr. Christina Kim has the following 3 specialties
- Pediatric Urology
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
A urologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the male reproductive system, as well as the urinary tracts of both males and females.
These doctors cover the kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, and the male reproductive organs which include the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis. Some common disorders that urologists treat are urinary tract infections (UTI), stress incontinence, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and cystitis. These urological specialists also perform vasectomies and vasectomy reversals.

My 7 month had surgery, took 4 hours. Was discharged. Later that day he had complications and we brought him to the ER. Was there for 6 hours. Dr. Kim was the urologist on call. She never came to see us and basically made it seem like our son was not important. Would not even let us stay overnight to have him monitored. The next day I spoke to her on the phone and she was essentially very rude and defensive. And again made me feel like our son and our concerns were not important or valid. Horrible way to feel after your 7 month old goes through a very difficult surgery.
I felt rushed, like my concerns for my daughter were not important maybe because the dr. did not think her circumstances were urgent, but they were VERY important to me! And the general bedside manner was curt. Staff was ok but I had beg to hear back about test results twice (after several days) and being given the serious runaround to get connected to the right person (whom I was told would get back to me in the first place!). Yikes - is there another office I can go to?!
I do not recommend Dr. Kim. I waited over 1.5 hours with my daughter. When she finally met us, she did not respond to the questions we asked. She seemed rushed. She did not listen to our concerns. Her followup was not satisfactory. She focused on the symptoms and not the cause. She did not respond to our request to speak with her. Her office staff blocked us from talking with her after the appointment.
