Ratings for Dr. Terrence T. Kim
Dr Kim is hands down the best orthopedic surgeon in LA. I saw him to have a total cervical disc replacement done after a car accident. He was thorough with his explanation of my injury and how to treat it. He spent ample time to ensure we understood our options. His genuine care and bedside manner is unique in a great surgeon. He genuinely cares about his patients and is a truly great doctor. If you need spine surgery done in CA you need to see Dr Kim!
Dr Kim is hands down the best spine surgeon in Los Angeles! I had second opinions from several other doctors, but chose Dr. Kim. Not only is he extremely warm, kind, and caring, but his bedside manner was fantastic and he treated me with exceptional care. His office staff (Ricardo and Nicole and Stacy) were extremely responsive and took care of me with all my work and scheduling issues. Now that my neck and arm pain are gone, I decided to write this to thank him and his staff. For anyone considering spine surgery, make sure to see him as a second opinion. You won't be disappointed.
I Came to see Dr. Kim for a consultation regarding m y spinal steosis. I was very impressed with how clearly he explained my condition and his recommendations. He is conservative in his approach and while other surgeons that I have seen told me to have a two step surgery, including a fusion, Dr. Kim felt that was not necessary at this time and told me he would recommend a lesser intensive surgery at this point. He took the time to explain his reasons for this. I was fortunate in that I saw him only about 15 minutes later than my appointment.
The Droctor knows his field well he is nice friendly caring open & honest admits quickly when he doesn't know something which I respect wish he new a little more about Meds. Nurse is good at her job but struggles very much to hear what you say, but doesn;t .
Dr. Kim is a professional, academic and caring physician. His extensive training is reflected in his process and results. After 2 1/2 years of being unable to walk or stand, I saw several MDs who were unable to diagnose my condition. I was referred to Dr. Kim, who patiently read my MRI reports, examined me thoroughly, explained his approach to my surgery (consisting of 2 herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and micrdecompression) and visited me daily in the hospital post surgery. I was pain free upon discharge and am walking 2 miles a day after 1 month. Dr. Kim is truly a brilliant, compassionate and superior MD. His wisdom, smile and disposition are assets towards the healing process.
Dr. Kim is a fantastic doctor and a truly good person. He did a three level fusion surgery on my neck for my neck pain, hand numbness and my balance problems. Now they are all fixed and I can't thank him enough for giving me my life back!! Thank you doctor Kim!!
Dr. Kim is truly a surgeon above the rest. My friend referred me to Dr. Kim after having great results. I had severe back pain and leg pain after a previous neurosurgeon had done a microdiscectomy on me. Dr. Kim spent 30 minutes explaining my problem and told me how he would fix it. I trusted him and he came through for me. He saw me everyday in the hospital and he took great care of me. I am so happy to have had my back fixed by him and I am grateful for each day that I am now able to walk and play with my kids without severe back pain. Dr. Kim, you are the best. You are truly a caring doc and at a level above the rest!! I recommend you to anyone thinking of having spine surgery!!!!!!
