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.

I needed help making a decision about doing reconstruction surgery and all he could say is that I wouldn't even touch you unless you lost 50lbs. I wasn't there for his opinion on weight loss nor was he going to perform the surgery, I just needed help making a decision. In my opinion this man needs to take some classes on customer relations.

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.
