Ist time I had seen Dr Kim. Took forever to get an appointment with him. [detail removed for privacy] I can't say enough good things about this doctor.

  Mar 1, 2023
I felt like I had more to say but was given quick answers, the provider had his eyes closed more than open lack of eye contact, didn't set well with me.If he's going to talk to me he needs to look at me. It's like he had this all per planed speech.

  Mar 1, 2023
Only downside was it took 4.5 months from initial referral to actual appointment

  Feb 22, 2023
I just felt like a number to be processed quickly through. He was very concerned about what the insurance would cover. More then the pain it was causing to be so large. But on the upside, he did tell me if I lost 30 more pounds that I might be accepted by the insurance coverage.

Dr. Kim is very good at what he does, He explains what he is doing and what to expect

  Jan 27, 2023
My appointment was with my plastic surgeon who did my implant on my left breast because of my mastectomy. He did a reduction on my right breast. Dr. Kim and his whole staff are kind, perfessional and talented.

  Jan 13, 2023
I was rushed through this visit and as soon as I admitted to being a smoker, he appeared he was finished with me and referred me to another doctor staff was great.

  Jan 11, 2023
Dr. Kim is very thorough & knowledgeable, love the staff & assistants.

  Jan 11, 2023
Dr. Kim has always provided excellent care!

  Jan 4, 2023
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.

  Dec 30, 2022
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.

  Dec 28, 2022
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.

Perfectlyh nice man - am confident in his ability during my surgery.

  Nov 2, 2022
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.

  Nov 2, 2022
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.

  Nov 1, 2022
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.

Dr. Kim Shane is highly knowledgeable, skilled, and I am thankful he is part of my care team.

  Oct 7, 2022
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.

  Oct 5, 2022
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.

  Jul 27, 2022
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!

  Jul 22, 2022
Dr Kim is awesome!!

  Jul 22, 2022
Very professional and easy to communicate with

  Jul 13, 2022
I find Dr. Kim kind, professional & thoughtful AND he communicates - That's unusual. Staff is extremely helpful & kind.

  Jul 6, 2022
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.

  Jun 28, 2022
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.

  Jun 17, 2022
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.

  Jun 17, 2022
I felt he was rushed and did not really want to listen to my concerns.

  Jun 16, 2022
Dr Kim is very informed with my chart records. He's easy to understand & shows great care & concern for the Patient/ me.

  Jun 14, 2022
Very concerned and caring attitude.

  Jun 8, 2022
Dr Kim gives quality care, answers all my questions. I know I can contact him if I have questions.
