I had an excellent and almost immediate result from two cervical spinal fusions in early September of this year that were skillfully performed by Dr. Paul KIm. He is thorough, thoughtful, and adept. Dr. Kim is an excellent listener and appears to be concerned about me as his patient. I have no regret that this is the physician that I selected to perform my corrective surgery. And I was referred to him by another physician that was also a very satisfied patient of his.
