Dr Kim and all of the Medical Staff were great it was the waiting time to see them that was bad.
Patient | May 29, 2017

I don't care if doctor is friendly, as long as they can communicate and answer questions, which was done expertly
Patient | May 27, 2017

Dr. Kim is clearly an expert in his field. He explained potential causes & treatments as well as listened to my information.
Patient | May 1, 2017

What I would like to highlight, is the fact that Dr. Stephen Kim has outstanding people skills and a bedside manner not normally seen in younger physicians his age. He listens, is concerned that he appropriately answers questions, and is interested in practicing continuous improvement in his surgeries; to the point that he is was very interested in how my experience during this surgery compared to the last surgery he did for me several years ago. I was able to pick up on the fact during conversation that he takes this information and uses it to adjust his processes/care going forward. He also personally called me at home following this surgery to see how I was doing. Dr Kim's interest and concern is genuine and comes across in his interactions with both myself and my husband. I appreciate the extra care he provides and have recommended him to friends in the past 2 years who needed a retina specialist and I will continue to do so in the future.
