The only thing that was stressful was Dr. Kim's name or the office name (something plastic surgery) was not on the directory and with three medical buildings and my first time there, I didn't know what to do. As I'm making my way in the pouring rain to the other bldgs, I remembered the suite # is on my phone.

Not only did Dr. Kim spend a sufficient amount of time with me explaining my injury, reviewing my xrays, explaining treatment options, and answering all of my questions, we also connected. Dr. Kim made me feel listened to, helped me with my concerns, and also proved he is a human being. It was a quick appointment but that was all that was needed. I feel confident in Dr. Kim's expertise, "bedside manner", and as a person.

Although, I feel like I walked away with all the information I needed, I did feel like the appointment and the time spent with the provider was very rushed. And instead of a personalized visit, it felt like Dr Kim was reciting a memorized script with very little room for me to interject any comments or questions.

Dr. Kim is thorough, his bedside manner is superior, and he explains everything very clearly. He makes himself available to answer questions at any time by multiple means for example telephone or online messaging. He's one of the best physicians I have ever received care from. Particularly recovering from breast cancer, he shows care and concern with thoughtfulness, compassion, empathy and the highest regard for each of his clients.

Dr. Kim is professional and personable. He takes time to listen to me. He even offered additional care I had not even considered. He is a very kind and well trained surgeon. I have been recommending him to everyone that is looking for a fantastic surgeon.

Dr. Kim is very respectful of my concerns and has easily been the best doctor to help me in the last year. His office is very easy to communicate with through MyChart and super convenient with appointment times. They also show genuine concern for my well being. I have had many complications from my surgery and at no time was anyone in Dr. Kim's office dismissive of my many concerns. They also have a very professional demeanor along with great humor and kindness.

He opened the door and said "SO I HEAR YOU WANT A BREAST REDUCTION, WHY DO YOU WANT A BREAST REDUCTION?" Didn't introduce himself, say hi, ask how I'm doing, nothing. When I started giving my answers he started talking before I was finished giving reasons, and he only focused on the physical reason and ignored the psychological one. He explained all these things about the surgery without asking if I already knew anything or being conversational at all, it was just a monologue. When it seemed like the physical reasons wouldn't qualify me for insurance and I brought up the psychological reasons which were very emotional and I was crying, he was cold and just told me he'd connect me with the other doctor there, which is when I learned I was given an appointment with the wrong doctor in the first place! My PCP told me he was giving me a referral to the trans specialist but I got an appointment with yet another emotionless cis man who bulldozed through everything.

This was the worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. It took me 7 weeks to get on the schedule. This was our first appointment. He did not inquire with me at all about my injury, only referred to my chart. He refused to answer my questions. He spoke to me in a condescending, rude, blaming tone. He made Innacurate assumptions about my future reactions. His language was not compassionate and was out right inappropriate. I had to terminate the appointment early as I did not feel heard, treated fairly or comfortable. This doctor needs to work on his bedside manner. He needs to take continuing education in compassionate communication and empathy- speaking as a mental health professional. I left knowing nothing about my injury, only that another scan was needed. Please feel free to follow up with me regarding my concerns.

He is very good at his job, but I think while he is trying to inform you of all the potential things that could go wrong, he can come across a little pessimistic. But that's just my opinion, I still wouldn't change a thing. Because he is great at his job.

I got an appt with Dr. Kim very quickly, the front desk was very friendly. Dr. Kim acknowledged my concern for how painful the shot in my hand was last time and used a different technique to make is way less painful. I'm so impressed!

I was treated w/extreme care and respect, by both the MD and receptionists. The quality of care I received was both physically & emotionally very high quality.

I waited for 45 minutes beyond my appointment time for the doctor to come in. No apology was given. Had I been this late, they would have told me to schedule and he would not have seen me. Why is it acceptable for my time to be wasted ? I have to pay for parking longer, I have to pay the babysitter more, and my plans have to be adjusted. This is unprofessional and disrespectful.

Dr Kim was very kind and efficient. He explained everything in easy to understand terms. He also removed the glass from my finger the same day instead of scheduling an additional appointment, which I REALLY appreciated. He is amazing. The only thing I didn't like was that when I initially made the appointment I had to wait over a month, while suffering pain.

This visit went very well. As far as recommending, other meetings were too short, not enough information and they would not allow me to call in with questions, I could only use online.

Seemed to favor surgery as opposed to injectable solution

Dr. Kim fit me in even when his schedule was busting at the seams. He was personable, knowledgeable, and informed me sufficiently about my options with breast surgery.

Dr Kim explained in detail the procedure, after care and any possible complications that I may experience as a result of the procedure.

Dr. Kim should answer the question about my diagnosis that I asked him a week ago. He also lied in the notes after my visit. My vitals were never checked, but show as being checked. Overall it was bad. Bad enough that I'm looking for a lawyer.

My experience with Dr. Kim was positive and overall great. I appreciated that he recalled my last visit and the history of my concern and seemed to genuinely listen to me and talk with me about my medical options for care and treatment. Regretfully, my experience with the medical assistants during intake was consistently lacking. My perception was that they were just going through the motions and not listening or demonstrating care to me as the patient. I felt that they needed to get the task done of checking me in and taking my initial set of vitals and they weren't interested or empathetic to my experience as the patient. It was dismissive and unbecoming of my experience with other Legacy medical staff and providers that provided me with exceptional care, compassion, and a genuine feeling that they were listening and cared.

I was way early to my appointment and the receptionist opened the door for me so I could sit, she was very nice to me. The dr who was supposed to see me was going to be late, but his PA came and asked if it was ok if she did the procedure and I agreed. She was amazing and very helpful.
