Dr. Kim is probably the best doctor I've ever had. She combines her wealth of knowledge and experience with such approachability. She is very responsive and goes above and beyond routinely. She also has a great support staff.

I am SO thankful Dr. Kim is at Vanderbilt! I recommend her to our Fibro Muscular Dysplagia Group all the time. DON'T LET HER GO!
Patient | August 24, 2018

Dr. Kim is amazing! She is a compassionate, to the point, has a great sense of humor or "bedside manner", and explains things in easy to understand language. The best part about Dr. Kim is that she is a specialist who is experienced in treating patients who have Fibromuscular Dysplasia, which is a fairly uncommon disease! I am so happy that we have an FMD Clinic at Vanderbilt and such a great doctor who knows about my arterial disease. Thank you Vanderbilt for establishing this FMD Clinic and for Dr. Kim!
