BRAIN Anurysm Surgery Oct 2014

Dr. Kim repaired my 8 1/4 mm brain anurysm and now two years later I am in perfect health. I truly feel Dr. Kim saved my life. Since my surgery I have known about three people who dropped dead due to an anurysm. He is my life saver.

had cavernous malformation removed

His staff needs some work in clinical. Not very good at calling. Benefit lady very rude. I had to stay on the staff with my recovery. Noone ever called me, I always had to call them. But, over all Dr. Kim was the best surgeon ever.
