How likely are you to recommend Dr. Kim?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Kim listens. This simple practice makes a huge difference in treatment of any chronic or other condition. He is always willing to listen and address your concerns and is happy to alter/change a treatment based on your feedback, this is a critical component of the treatment process. Dr. Kim will also argue with insurance companies, trying to save a dime on your health and will not let their opinions influence his.
