Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Very competent but I felt I needed to interrupt a couple of times to ask a pertinent question as he was giving the "usual" information on the procedure.

My [date deleted] appointment was for a consult prior to surgery. It is not possible to fairly grade the doctor until surgery is completed.

I got to know Dr. Kim more towards my surgery and just learned I had to be prepared with questions and ask him to slow down sometimes. I was impressed with the wait times and overall clinic.

The reason I/we keep coming back to Legacy Health systems is because of the excellent care I/we have received every time we need the services of Dr Kim, his staff, the surgical staff at your hospital, and Dr Shinabarger and his staff. We keep recommending them and this hospital system to our friends and family in the hopes that one day they will also discover how good Legacy is.

I had an urgent need for a procedure, went to my PCPs office first, for an 1130 appointment. She needed to refer me to another provider, Dr Kim was able to fit me into his schedule at 1pm. He did the evaluation, and the procedure, and I was in my way home by 2pm. I'm very grateful to him and his staff for making time for me and taking care of me with very little notice.

Dr Kim answered all of my questions, listened to what I had to say, and made sure I understood the various options for my treatment. I had a lot of questions but Dr Kim never rushed me or seemed impatient. This is the first time I have visited Dr Kim and it was a very positive experience.

My daughter recommended Dr. Kim as she had recently had his services on hand surgery. I had a similar problem of trigger fingers & was given immediate help.

Nov 5, 2018
Please comment on good or bad experiences related to your visit.
I contacted the office the day after my visit with a concern about pain in one of the fingers the doctor treated. I didn't receive a call back for 7 hours and the medical assistant clearly had not reviewed the treatment I'd had and gave me a very limited response - she sounded hurried and tired & rushed. By the next day, my finger was improving, so I did not call the office again, whoever responds to patient concerns after a visit should have more time scheduled for this, should respond more quickly and should be much better informed about who the patient is, and what treatment they received.

I understand the doctor was in a rush, after an unexpected surgery, but I waited like 1.5 hours, he saw me for 5 mins and didn't show any care

I saw Dr. Kim for reconstruction - I think I may have chosen the best dr. for the surgery I need.

i'm sure Dr. Kim is a wonderful surgeon, but his bedside manner in the exam room is far from desirable. I am seeing him as a second opinion and am very frustrated that he doesn't take the time to listen to concerns and doesn't do his research on patients before appointments with them. Every minute with him is made to feel like he has something more important he needs to be doing which makes me feel like I am not in the besf hands and he has no idea what is going in with my care.

I was in the exam room for about 45 min. prior to Dr. Kim's arrival. No one came in to explain the delay. When Dr. Kim arrived he seemed unprepared, and had to ask me if this was my pre-op (he was to perform surgery in 2 days). He hurriedly glanced at my chart and computer to fill himself in. As on other visits, I haven't been impressed with Dr. Kim's "bedside manner." He seems a bit dismissive and insensitive. An example, on two previous visits I had some redness on the breast that the surgery was done on, and when Dr. Kim examined me, he exclaimed "That's really bizarre." No cancer patient ever wants to hear those words from their health care giver. On another visit, after I asked a number of questions about my condition, rather than laying out the options in a clear, succinct manner, he seemed exasperated and exclaimed, "I'll do whatever you want." That seems unprofessional and inappropriate. My husband has been to all these appointments with me and can vouch for these experiences.
