Specialties

Dr. Gordon L Kim has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Do not waste your time & money

No follow-up calls from the office staff/ doctor after 1st office visit, even though Dr. Kim said that I will hear from them after they receive my medical records. Front desk staff are grumpy and not pleasant to talk to in person or over the phone. Do not waste your time & money going to this clinic.

Saved my butt literally!

Dr. Kim did a colonoscopy on me and removed two polyps from my colon. As you know this could have been disastrous had he not been so thorough in his examination. I am grateful and see him now every five years for a follow up. He is all business so if you are looking for a shoulder to cry on find another gastroenterologist because his work ethic is straight forward as a specialist. I'm grateful to have him as part of my healthcare team of professionals at Scripps 👍
