Worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. Based on only a slightly elevated PSA test, wanted to perform a prostate biopsy without physically touching me. Refused to discuss my concerns and told me I was going to have to respect his decisions as a doctor, opened the door, shook my hand and sent me on my way.
We went to see dr kim for my husbands infertility issues. For our 300 dollar appt he was very thorough and informative. He gave us real life answers in language we could understand. He seemed genuine and gave us realistic advice and options. Evevthough it was not good news we recieved his dimeanor made the appt easier to take.
