Don't let this inexperienced unprofessional do your hernia repair!

Had a consult for an inguinal hernia. Dr. Kim was unprofessional, smug and made a racial comment about Hispanic name/ethnicity, coming from someone who is obviously from an Asian ethnicity. He confirmed that he had little experience in doing an open hernia repair with mesh...maybe 1 a month but did plenty in residency, which is not very reassuring. I wouldn't recommend him for hernia or any other surgery. I would recommend he retake his classes in bedside manner.

Dr. Kim took care of me while I was at Sunrise Hospital in the Trauma Center. He saved my life and is an excellent surgeon. I have to have another surgery and want Dr. Kim to do this surgery also.

Dr. Kim is good.

Dr. Kim was my surgeon for emergent surgery while I was in Las Vegas on business. He has a good bedside manner and seems to have a genuine interest in the health of his patients.
