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

Dr Kim was a referral from my PCP and this was the first time I met with him. He answered all of my questions and explained my condition [removed to protect privacy]. His explanations were thorough and not rushed.

Dr Kim's office staff are always very helpful and kind to me - whether on the phone or in person. And I am very happy with all the help Dr Kim has given me, before, during and after all of the surgical work he has done on me. He is always ready to answer all questions and listen to any concerns I might have. He is extremely capable, kind, knowledgeable, professional, yet not "cold". He has a warm heart, is compassionate, and makes himself available to answer any inquiries I might have via email also. Whenever I have opportunity I always highly recommend Legacy and these physicians. They are all very capable and I really appreciate them!

I asked when I scheduled the appt that the injection I was getting be ready when I got there (it has to be warmed for 30 minutes) and called on my way in (got voicemail). I wasn't warmed. I had to wait 1/2 hour. It's annoying.

Dr Kim has been great. He always explains procedures and answers any questions that I would have. I was in pretty bad shape and he "put me back together" better than I could have ever hoped for. I am very thankful that he is on the team that helped me.

Dr. Kim is the best. He listens and then explains things in an easy to understand way. He's always friendly yet still concerned for your well being. Would recommend him to anyone!

Dr Kim is always very kind & takes the time needed to answer & explain answers to my and my husband's questions. He explains all options and treatments thoroughly. We are never made to feel like we are taking too much of his time. I am very pleased and comfortable with his care and attentiveness to all details. He is an excellent physician.

Dr Kim is probably a very good surgeon, but he is highly strung very intense in person in an office as well as on the phone. While he does listen and did give me enough time in the appointment, it felt as though he was incredibly impatient and ready to move on. both my husband and I could understand the specifics of my injury description as well as the protocols for healing, however I doubt that most people would be as lucky. I would suggest slowing down slightly and not using quite so many medical terms for most people. What's that line? No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care. On the other hand, you can't fault enthusiasm and he clearly is very confident in what he does.

Dr. Kim didn't give me a chance to ask my questions and get answers involving my injury due to domestic violence. He seemed more interested in finishing with me and moving on to something else. Didn't seem to be interested in my input regarding my injury -

He gives me a (3) weeks wait for every step of service, as if he is trying to give it time to "get a worse" condition - rather than be proactive.

dr. Kim is an amazing person and provides a service in this area that no one else does by giving women their dignity back by doing trim flaps and other surgeries for women like myself who have had breast cancer they cannot have a normal reconstruction he also did Hand Surgeon and my husband when he was bit by a dog and he is not only our surgeon but our friend I tell everyone I meet about him I actually have his video in the end of my email account so everyone can watch it if they like and see what a difference he is made in our lives he is an amazing individual and you are so very very lucky to have him you should do whatever you need to keep him because without him it would be very sad for women like myself to get the care that we need and to have a provider that is willing to stand up and fight for us. I am blessed and honored to know him. I proudly leave my name in total support of him

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.
