Impressed

I had a appointment and was a little nervous because couple months ago I went in and the front desk girl did not greet me and I was in pain. She was a little rude. So about a week ago I went in and it was packed of patients and I noticed there was a new girl up front and she was very nice and made me feel really comfortable there. I asked her name and told her she was the sweetest thing ever. Her name is Falisha. My office visit this day was absolutely wonderful. Thank you. Hope they hire more girls like her. My doctor Kim was very quick and very polite. Great office visit.

Go elsewhere

Awful! No eye contact or bed side manner. Runs office like a prison. Front office staff dismissive, curt, and rude. Lucky to spend 6 minutes with you. Will not answer any of your questions. Doesnt know how to work computer to pull up XRays! A real ding dong.

One Star

I asked Dr. Kim about the viability of a shoulder procedure that has been around for a decade and is covered by my insurance. But he lied to me, telling me it's "experimental". He spent half the visit talking on his cell phone=right in front of me. As a retired professional, I was shocked. If your HMO forces you to see him, ask for a second opinion and never go to him for shoulder problems, if you can help it!

Run, don't walk away, as fast as you are able

OMG, where to begin. I guess the quickest comment would be DON'T SEE THIS ....I was about to call him, DR, but that would be over the top. I have never had such a terrible experience. The patient is in serious pain for months, doctor has MRI's and xrays, and with all this, along with several diagnosis from other doctors whom I know, this moron still doesn't know what is causing the horrific pain. I could write an entire book about Dr. Strangelove, suffice it to say, I suspect he got his medical license (if he has one) from the 99 cent store!
