He Listened and He Heard Me

Dr. Kim has seen me through many flare-ups and has spent time during my office visit going over any questions and results of test that were ordered. He is an excellent MS doctor.

Awful!

Deserves less than one star. If you are even able to get a human being on the phone to make an appt.- you will sit and wait for your appt. for a very long time. Dr. Kim has horrible bedside manner and I would never recommend him to anyone.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
hostile, opinionated, wrong diagnosis.
Superficial, made the wrong diagnosis

Perhaps worse than being charged a ton of money for a superficial examination and poor overall communication, is to actually be given the wrong diagnosis. I've never seen someone be so quick to prescribe pills for such a complex situation, only to find out later that my problems were of a completely different nature, and that the pills were then creating adverse side effects that were complicating the diagnosis of the main problem. I would NOT recommend Dr. Kim.
