Should not be a doctor

I took my child to see Dr. Kim for a second opinion. I found that he is arrogance and narrow minded. Instead of helping, he belittled my concerns. He viewed two other doctors' opinions as a grain of salt. Even if he is the best surgeon in the city, I WILL NOT bring my daughter to see him again. Because being a great doctor requires a compassionate heart and respect for patients and their families.

WONDERFUL

Dr. Kim is an amazing, effective, warm superspecialist

I cannot imagine a more specialized, skilled, and warm ortho surgeon. Dr. Kim is a rare individual whose value cannot be overstated. Plus, I've had nothing but world-class experiences with absolutely everyone attached to his office and OR (especially his PA, Erin). So lucky and happy to have him on my team!

Exceptional MD

Dr. Kim has preformed several complex orthopedic surgeries for our daughter who has a very rare genetic condition that effects the proper development of all her bones. He has done an amazing job in caring for her. Our daughters quality of life has drastically improved over the years as a result of Dr. Kim's extremely talented work. Every time we have called in for even a simple question about post op concerns I always have gotten a call back from him directly within an hour. ~Very Pleased

One Star

My biggest regret is having brought my child to this doctor. She suffered greatly under his care. I do not believe he had the expertise needed to properly treat her. Will never go back.
