Specialties

Dr. Young H Kim has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Five Stars

This practice has a cadre of excellent pediatricians, each of whom we have seen at least once over the years. Some are old-school authoritative; others are Patch Adams funny. And then, there's Dr. Kim who is totally our pace. He possesses the attributes that are important to us: thoughtful, friendly/approachable, respectful, knowledgeable, compassionate, great bedside manner, not pushy, and cares deeply about his patients. Our son adores and looks up to him, and we can't recommend him highly enough to other families.

The best!

Dr. Kim is by far our favorite doctor at FH pediatrics. He's very knowledgeable without being arrogant, and always takes time to answer all of our questions without making us feel rushed. He treats our concerns seriously, and responds well to phone calls. It's not always easy to trust others with your children, but Dr. Kim is someone we do trust.

probably the best at the practice

I just saw Dr. Kim today with my daughter, and LOVED how he spends time with you. He always asks questions, values your thoughts/opinions, and really thinks about your child's issues (if any). He did not rush me out today, and I liked that! He has been "our" doctor at the practice for almost 7 years, but when he is not available, we've seen every other doctor there. He is approachable and genuine

Great doctor

Out of the many doctors at Forest Hills Pediatrics, Dr. Kim is one that is high, if not top, on our list. If you're looking for him to crack jokes and be the life of the party, he's not and won't. But if you're looking for a nice, competent, caring professional pediatrician, he's your man! Don't think that he is not friendly- he is very friendly, always looks genuinely caring- he puts your mind at ease.
