Ratings for Dr. Hwaok Kim
Dr. Kim had been wrong about a few conditions I've had and got offended when I went to a specialist without a referral. I didn't completely trust her diagnoses, which is crucial for a successful patient/doctor relationship. I often felt like answers were kept vague as a way to bring me back in for more copays.
I have had Dr. Kim for a few years now. Her staff are horrible. I was handed another patients chart when I went in for an appointment once. It is nearly impossible to get a sick apppintment and she always has to be "asked" if you can be squeezed in. Then you have to wait all day for a call back to be seen. I have been over charged when insurance was supposed to cover. She had me doing B-12 shots and never followed up with blood work to see if the B12 was absorbing or to check levels. This office is a joke. Her staff are rude and incompetent to say the least!!! Ive worked in the medical field for years and have never seen such disorganization. Not for anything, add a doctor if you cant handle the load.
Dr. Kim is not familiar with foreseeing future outcomes of diagnosed patients and the stages they go through trying to deal with medical issues. She likes to try to resolve everything at her level before sending patients to specialist and holds her patients too long before giving referrals. She is moody-you can tell by how she is walking around if she is going to be nasty and rude. She gets upset when what she believed was wrong proves otherwise. She breaks dr/patient confidentiality. She does not review doctor reports with you when you see a specialist. She gets confused on what medication changes she makes and blames it on the patient. My prescriptions are on my medicine bottles that she originally wrote. She forgets that everyone does not make the pay of a doctor and thinks there is something wrong with you if you ask costs. Never been to a doctor office that was unwilling to have RNs to give shots and do blood pressure. They all probably refused to work there though-obvious tension
