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.

My PCP referred me to Dr. Kim. Dr KIM is a SURGEON, so his focus is more narrow than what I was seeking. Dr. Kim had a habit of keeping his eyes closed, as if he was recalling information in his mind to convey to me, about half the time when he was speaking to me, which I found a bit unsettling. He referenced statistics and seems to be very knowledgeable but it felt like he was going over this same info w/ a patient for the millionth time. He could only offer me bone fusing (once my condition worsens) or shots for pain management. The written description of the X-ray test results were extremely technical and since I don't have a medical dictionary I will need to use google to decipher the terms. At that point I may be able to discern if I have any follow up Qs for the doctor about the X-ray results. I would like to learn what I can do to maintain or not harm the function in my hands and take the best care I can for them. Dr. Kim generally referenced my age, and I imagine osteoarthritis in women's hands must be an extremely common condition for him to see. I was not offended by the age reference, and I understand that joints wear out eventually, but would have GREATLY appreciated a referral to a hand therapist or occupational therapist.

This provider's office mgr incorrectly deployed a phone message that said the office was "closed due to inclement weather" when, in fact, their office was open on a two-hour delay. The message still said the same thing just forty-five minutes before my (re)scheduled appointment time. They were good about squeezing me in, the next afternoon, for which I'm very grateful, but it made the time with Dr. Kim feel very rushed-less than ten minutes. I was happy with, and confident in, his evaluation, though.

Dr. Kim is a plastic surgeon. He is very direct and does not waste time during appts. This appt was my final post-op for breast reduction surgery. I am pleased with the results, and Dr. Kim asked if I was having any problems, if my back and neck pain had been reduced and if I had other questions. I brought the scar medications I have been using for his input. After examining me, he discussed my scar meds and told me which ones were highly recommended. He took final pictures of my surgery, and addressed my concerns about the inflammation in the lower part of my breasts and a small area under one arm where a drain tube was attached. He explained that everything looked good, that I was healing as expected and the area under my arm could be fixed in a couple months in the office if it hadn't receded on its own. He explained that swelling can take up to 6 months to subside, which made me feel much better. He was very encouraging and wrote an inclusive note in My Health, reviewing our conversation and his findings. Patients should come prepared with questions to get the best results from their visits. Dr. Kim will listen and address each one. Do not be afraid to ask. I like Dr. Kim and have appreciated him throughout this process. If I have forgotten to ask something during an appointment, I message him through My Health, and he responds quickly, usually the same day, within hours. My only complaint about my visits is the timing of nurses taking blood pressure. A patient needs to have a least 5 minutes sitting in one place to get the most accurate reading. I have been to this office 4 times. Each time I felt rushed, and my BP showed it. In addition, different methods of taking BP were used. I took my BP at home after sitting and the systolic was 13 points lower. After I have been seated for several minutes, it is lower still. The BP device I use at home is the same manufacturer as the one in the office, but has Bluetooth connectivity, so I have a running total available on my phone. Being rushed to take vitals seems to be a common thing in doctor's offices, not just at Legacy. Especially with older patients, I think it's important for this process to take a few minutes longer in order for the patient to feel they are being respected and treated with care. Back to Dr. Kim...I would recommend him highly. He did an excellent job reducing the size of my breasts and answering my questions and concerns. I have a piece of my life back. I have less pain and feel better about myself. I am so happy I had this surgery! He gets a gold star. And I loved the Halloween decorations in the office!

Dr. Kim is an excellent provider, clinician, and listener. His PA usually does trigger finger treatment, but he did mine this time - and honestly, it's a bit below his pay grade. Yet he treated me like I was his only concern of the morning. He also saw my son four years ago, without an appointment, for a traumatic hand injury. I called his office for this favor (I used to work at LGS with Dr Kim). They got us in that day, and it was the bright spot of a horrible event. I am forever gratefully to Dr Kim and his staff.

Dr. Kim is the whole package. His peers highly recommend him as a surgeon. He always took time to explain procedures and processes to me. My questions/concerned were always addressed. His compassion and caring is genuine. I felt very fortunate to be in his care. Legacy Health is lucky to have him on their team.

Dr. Kim provided professional and courteous care. He listened when I asked him questions about a treatment plan and offered me guidance on my questions to help me make the right choice. As a suggestion for improvement, I felt that the intake and service provided by the first medical assistant did not meet Legacy Health standards. I don't fault her for struggling to pronounce my name but she didn't even try. When we entered the patient care room, she started to take a set of vitals and didn't explain at all what she was doing. She approached my right arm to take my blood pressure, paused with the pulse ox finger meter, and didn't request or instruct that she needed my left finger to apply the pulse ox. She then asked me about my medications, skipped asking about my prescribed maintenance medication, and asked about the supplements and vitamins. She then asked if I was still taking insulin and when I responded that I have never taken insulin and stated my concern that it was in my chart, she didn't respond. I asked her again how that could have been entered into my chart and for a second time, I did not receive a response. I then stated that I am still taking the prescribed medication noted in my chart that she skipped and she answered, "Ok.". She then left the room. A second medical assistant or nurse entered the room shortly afterward and was very pleasant and professional. She explained who she was, informed me that the doctor was running a little behind, apologized for the delay, and offered me water. She then followed up with me two more times to check on me and offer to replenish my water. Her professionalism, bedside manner, and communication were fantastic and she should be commended for it. I understand that taking a set of vitals and intake can be routine but that is a short-sided perspective from the point of the view of the care provider and the patient shouldn't be treated less than professional and courteously with each encounter. Overall, my visit was fine and I had a good experience. I hope my feedback is received as a constructive suggestion and that my overall confidence in my care and trust in Legacy is unshaken and solid. Thank you for the chance to provided feedback.

I am seeing Dr. Kim for breast reduction surgery. He has given me the info about what to expect, but I always have more questions after I leave...even though I bring notes. He saw that I a written list of questions and made sure to address those before anything else during the visit. I have worked in healthcare, so I understand that doctors often have limited time to spend with each patient. I read other reviews of this provider and don't quite understand what happened with those who were very negative. My primary concern is that he do a good job with my surgery. He was cordial and answered every question I asked. I did not feel dismissed or disrespected.

I love me a mr. Dr. Kim! He is very thorough.he doesnt waste time yet he doesnt make u feel like ur just a # that goes in n goes out. He is happy and friendly and has an extremely sweet bedside manner...yet, he let's u kno wat u should and SHOULD NOT be doing. He makes a great dr. He really knew what his calling was. Mind you...I detest and fear anything that even looks, smells, sounds or is even related to any kind of dr. So he is like a breath of fresh air to me. He is very empathetic to my pain n that is extremely rare. All of the staff members were delightfully friendly and made me feel like they cared and were very attentive and made me feel happy n secure. Like people who would b my friends.
