Dr. Lance Y Kim has the following 4 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

I am so satisfied with all medical care from Dr. Kim. I have pretty complicated Parkinson dosease & multiple sleep disorders. Unlike most other docs who were so quick to throw pills at me, Dr. Kim spent lot of time evaluating my past history & did careful work up before he mentioned a single medicine. He finally put together combination regimen that did wonder for me

Where is Donna????????

I have been a patient of Dr. Kim for many years and I absolutely love him, however a couple of years back I moved to New York to help out my parents. I recently returned to Ocala and called to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kim and to my surprise I found out that Donna is no longer with Dr. Kim. I was definitely shocked to find out this information but because I love Dr. Kim I decided to go ahead and schedule an appointment. It took me calling and leaving a message 4 times before someone called me back. I use to be able to call Donna directly and she would get me in right away to see Dr. Kim. When I was finally able to go into my appointment the whole experience was awful. Don't get me wrong Dr. Kim was wonderful as he has always been since the first day I met him. He was caring and friendly and knew exactly what I needed to feel better. That's why I continue to come back to him. But it didn't feel the same without Donna being there. Donna and Dr. Kim worked so well together. It's like they jelled and worked well off of each other. The new people that are in the office are not Donna. Donna was the glue that held the office together. She was always friendly and she knew her stuff. Dr. Kim and Donna was the perfect team and I wish that Donna was back in the office with Dr. Kim. Florida Neurological Center is the best place to go if you want to see a doctor that is knowledgeable, caring and is there for his patients, Dr. Lance Kim is the neurologist to see. I am still going to go see him but I wish that Donna was still there in the office. Anything that I needed she was always there and she got it done. Donna never took "No" for an answer especially when it came to insurance companies. My husband and I truly miss Donna. Thank you Dr. Kim for all that you do for me and your other patients..........the best thing that you can do for us ALL is to find a way to bring Donna back and get the team back together.

Great Headache Specialist

I suffer migraine on daily basis pretty much all my life. I have seen truck load of doctors & tried just about every medicines under Sun. I have given up hope. Then I got introduced to Dr. Kim by my new PCP. OMG!! He impressed me so much by elaborating the mistakes made in my care. Basically Dr. Kim felt that much of my headaches were perpetuated by excessive meds other docs put me on. He made radical simplication to my regimen & dietary changes & special meditation. My headache frequency is at least 70% down thanks to Dr. Kim

Wonderful physician

I have very complicated Neurological disorders including brain aneurysm, stroke, seizure, headaches. Lots tests had to be done understandably. Then I got laid off & went broke financially. Dr. Kim was deeply concerned about my mountainous stess impacting my complex neuro conditions. He ended up writing off my thousands of dollars of medical bills. I rarely cry but I did cried because of his deep genuinine concern for me. I feel so blessed because of Dr. Kim
