Dr. Kim is unprofessional and inconsiderate; he does not care about the well being of his patient. It took him two days to return my phone call after calling several times over two days to report problems after a procedure. He did not explain what to expect after the procedure. He took two days to respond to a question about a medication and he took two days to report to be the results of my tests when I know he had them.
