Dr. Lauren H Kim has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

Didn't even read the labs

Dr. Kim had the majority of the appointment conducted by an intern. After consulting with him, she spent about 10 minutes telling my husband that his problem was just osteoarthritis, that he should take over the counter meds (she mentioned Aleve and Tylenol) for it, and that when he did that his severe fibromylagia pain would diminish. She hadn't bothered to read his chart - he has a clear auto-immune diagnosis (which we told her). She was condescending and dismissive...and negligent.

Dr.Kim has led me down the path from poor me to dealing with the symptoms of my scleroderma as they arise. She has educated me on what to expect and that is the biggest comfort.Since learning I am also in the small group with a potential for early kidney failure I have given up any alcoholic drinks, changing my diet gradually to accomodate my condition and changing physiology.Dr. Kim has taken my condition, Scleroderma, and given me the tools & knowledge to face it realistically.
