He and all the nurses through out the visit and through the surgery were great. They were kind, gracious, comforting and understanding. They made an uncomfortable situation comfortable. Call backs from nurses have been amazing, response time has been very quick. I really appreciate how kind they all handled the process with me. As long as my results after healing turn out great, I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff to anyone!
