I was admitted to Paoli Hospital a week and a half ago, with stroke like symptoms and cervical spinal symptoms. Neurology believed this to be due to lymes disease in my spinal cord. We asked Infectious Disease be brought into the case and Dr Kim seemed completely annoyed to have been requested. Keep in mind I also had a case if Bell's palsy so the lymes disease idea was one I was hoping for to explain all symptoms. When Dr Kim came in to tell us it was negative in my spinal fluid, he was short, irritated and unable or unwilling to explain himself in a simplistic manner to a patient who had been in pain meds and in a hospital bed for over 4 days. He seemed annoyed I couldn't comprehend, through my meds, he medical speak. The absolute worst bedside manner I have ever experienced. He made us feel foolish to think that it could possibly be lymes disease in Early February. I suppose it may have not occurred to him that people travel to warmer climates during the winter months where deer ticks may still be active. I would never recommend this Dr to anyone. Every other person and professional I dealt with at Paoli hospital was wonderful.

Dr.Kim has been very attentive to my diagnosis. He explains things in a way that I understand and he allows for questions even when they seem silly. He is honest and very intelligent! I really respect and highly encourage you to see Dr. Kim if you need an infectious disease doctor!

Dr Kim Infectious Disease Specialist

I was admitted to ER Bryn Mawr Hospital in a bad way a month ago. Dr Kim diagnosed my problem (staph aureus in the joints), told me how I acquired the infection, and put me on a course toward recovery. Whether I was in intensive care or in a normal bed, Dr Kim never failed to update me on the status of my disease. He would sometimes come by both morning and evening.This guy is a sweetheart. I trust him implicitly. Highest rating.
