23/06/14 3 1 1 1 This "doctor" only bad mouthed the radiologist and facility where I got my MRI. He said that most radiologist only get it right about 50% of the time. He wouldn't believe the report and said he couldn't read the MRI images because he thought they were very poor quality. So he completely ignored the report and my primary doctors report and just said he thought it was old age based on "orient traditions". I'm only 52. Completely unwilling to help other than suggest heat packs to de thaw and force movement in my torn rotator cuff.  Respond

20/12/12 4 3 1 1 My experience with Dr. Kim had a very unfavorable outcome. After breaking a bone in a fall, he installed a metal plate and 10 screws to repair the break. His "fix" caused additional breaks in my bone post operation, disfigurment, and continued pain, loss of healing time and loss of ability to resume a normal active life. His advice was to leave it alone. I went for a 2nd opinion which resulted in a removal of the plate Dr. Kim put in, a correction to the disfigured bone, and a new plate installed.  Respond

01/07/07 5 3 5 5 He has done 3 surgeries for our family and he will be doing my hip replacements this year. He is an excellent Dr. who is not one to rush his patients in and out he takes his time and is very precise with everything he does. I have seen him for numerous things over the years and have always had excellent results and he is a very smart and kind man. His staff is very friendly. I would recommend this office and Dr. to anyone in this area for any Ortho.
