I have been seeing Dr. Kim for over three years. I know he has a deep concern for my well-being and quality of life. He closely monitors my condition (cervical disk disease) and adjusts my medications so I am able to function with a minimum amount of pain. Several times I have had break-through pain that left me unable to sleep or work and he has seen me the very next day. He administered shots to alleviate my pain and provided a quiet room for me to rest in while the medications took effect. During two of these visits he administered a second shot when the first didn’t alleviate the pain. He takes a holistic approach to my situation, evaluating all of the medications I take, making suggestions when there is a better alternative available. He talks with me about my home life, things that stress me, things that make my pain worse. He has made constructive recommendations that have improved my situation. Over the past three years I’ve noticed many people as they interact with his staff. Some of them, I assume, are in extreme pain and are quite irritable or even angry. The staff deals with each person in a professional manner. I have taken the time to get to know Gloria, asking her about her life and work, and have found her to be a wonderful friend. I highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone who needs a thorough, effective, caring pain management doctor.

Patients seem over medicated and they tell horror stories of what happens inside this office. OBN, please put this doc on your radar!

Dr. Donald Kim eally Leave his Nationality, what he states he has seen, insteadt of reading medical records. Everyone's medical conditions differ than what he has seen. The staff is great he would venture more with patiens if he tooks notes on how to treat patients off medical notes instead of what h seen in other patients.

I saw Dr Kim for YEARS and I recently called to see if I could start seeing him again. I should have none better. First, I called a good 3 weeks in advance to make sure there would be no problem 1st call back was told the girl that does this does them on Fridays wait she'll call me... Then we wait, husband says they say I'm was #52 of 108 what the hell does that mean? So then 6 days later the girls Says "she missed her appointment" he says "she never had an appointment I'm calling from our Drs office to make sure you got the referal and understand it" "oh, your right! Sorry!" My nurse laughs and says "really? Are you SURE you want to do this again?" I think she's right! The last time he got me so addicted that I left so angry after 3 years of management in one appointment set up to the visit with him it all came tumbling down! I found another doctor to take me off 40mg of OC 3x daily btw: the hospital wouldn't give that dose!!! He is irresponsible.

Dr. Kim's staff are the rudest people. Entire staff really needs to learn about compassion. For an office that has scriptures and religious artifacts throughout, it obviously does not rub off on the staff. In fact, it's the total opposite. Maybe Dr. Kim is secretly trying to perform exorcisms on his employees because they act like the devil in disguise. If you have an emergency and need to go out of town and have to get meds a day or two earlier due to a parent dying-the staff's response to that is "not our problem!" The prescriptions do not even last a full month. Dr. Kim makes you call the pharmacy so they can fax in a request to his office then the patient has to wait around for his lazy staff to call to pick up the prescription, which they sit on until the very last minute so you have to often go the weekend without meds because they don't give you enough time to pick up the prescription on Friday to get it filled. Please go somewhere else. staff is incompetent at best!

I was a little put off at first by all the negative comments but I'm so glad i went ahead and kept my appointment! I absolutely love Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I always get seen at the time specified, Dr. Kim always goes over every bit of my file,shows me things to do to lessen pain, i.e. yoga, stretching exercises, recommended probiotics when i talked to him about my stomach problems that my regular doctor blows off every single visit. He was rather upset when i mentioned that my regular doctor makes jokes every time i bring up my stomach problems. Dr. Kim is the best Dr I have and i have quite a few. Love them all!

Dr. Kim is very helpful and knowlegeable. His rules are there, yes, but he is liberal with medications. One of the best, in my opinion.
