Dr. Kim is so great. He knows exactly what I want because he listens to me and he also tells me exactly what can and cannot be done so the expectations on both sides are the same. I appreciate that very much.

This was my 3rd visit with Dr Kim plus he performed my carpal tunnel surgery. He is very polite, engaged in who I am and knowledgeable. I'm very happy with his demeanor and professionalism.

Dr Kim was knowledgeable, helpful, reassuring and pleasant. He knew what the next steps are in this case and has asked his office staff to reach out to my insurance provider.

In a previous visit to this provider my wait time was almost an hour due to reception being at lunch. This seemed unacceptable for wait time. I also had a lot of trouble getting an appointment bouncing between ortho and plastics several times which was frustrating.I also must ask that you place hand sanitizer in the waiting room.

I never did see Dr. Kim at this visit, instead I was seen by his PA. She seemed quite knowledgeable, but rushed & clipped. I there for follow - up for fx in my hand - took 3 wks. to get an appointment.

Only thing is l was less prepared than l thought and consequently did not ask questions l wish l had. Dr. was all business and covered all salient points himself, but he seemed every bit the surgeon, which is somewhat intimidating to me, so that l failed to ask a couple questions l should have. However, l'm pretty sure l can get these questions answered. He also had a stellar recommendation from my primary, in whom l have immense faith.

Dr. Kim was probably in the exam room for a maximum of 1 minute. He didn't even sit down to discuss my concerns but quickly ordered an MRI for me to check for issues and stated I would need to return another day for that. I had asked about some dimpling occurring on my breast and I felt like he just brushed off my concern and said there wasn't anything that could be done to "fix" it due to the "device being located under the muscle" and basically ended the conversation w/ that and walked out abruptly.

I was seen right away. Dr. Kim was nice enough to fit me in the schedule. Dr. Kim was very kind and explained my issues well and did not seem rushed. Dr. Kim's staff were all kind and professional. I would recommend his office to others without hesitation.

The only issue I encountered related to initial scheduling. When I was directed to the office I was told that I needed a referral despite having Pacific source insurance through legacy. This created an extra hoop to jump through I was able to connect with the office manager to forgo this requirement as is my understanding That our insurance does not require a referral in order to see a specialist. Other than this issue I was very impressed with the timeliness and respect I received during my care

I enjoy the doctors & staff at this office & will use them in the future for my needs, but I am disappointed that I was charged $50 copay for less than 5 minutes of face to face time w/the doctor to discuss what was already decided though electronic communication.

provider was over 20' late for an appt that I arrived 10' early. Apologized but never looked me in the eye. Was repetitive in his explanation and POC( prefer more to the point conversation). It's challenging to be told that you just have to wait and see if it happens again, and that I would get squeezed in for an appt if needed when it took 6 weeks to get an appointment and it could have been taken care of then.

I had a morning (first time) visit with Dr. Kim. I arrived early, as requested, but didn't get in to exam room for nearly 45 mins after appointment time. then, the wait for Doctor seemed longer than average. Once seen, Dr. Kim seemed rushed to get through exam. While I feel he covered the basic information of visit, his hurried demeanor caused some anxiousness where I didn't feel I had time to discuss some medical history or an opportunity to ask questions I feel important and pertinent to potential procedure/surgery.

It was a pleasure working with Dr. Kim and his PA Allison. Office staff was very responsive and pleasant. Emilyn MA went out of her way to assist in scheduling a surgery day the was optimal for my work and up coming vacation schedule. Thank you !!!

Dr Kim has been my surgeon for both my two mastectomies and also my hand surgeries. I would refer him to any breast cancer patient, and to patients needing hand surgery- he is the very best in both fields. Five Stars to Dr Kim! my suggestion, is his office needs a better reception system in terms of relaying messages to him, and also a system that recognizes the needs of patients in a need basis. Particularly the online messages, which he rarely receives. that needs to be improved, especially for a surgeon of his magnitude.

[Removed to protect patient privacy] I appreciate that Dr. Kim takes time and doesn't rush. He listens and makes sure that we are in agreement regarding how he will proceed in surgery. I am very pleased with his surgical expertise and genuine interest in resolving every issue to my satisfaction, from where to get my COVID19 test before surgery so that it is convenient, to scheduling of surgery, to exactly what I want to have happen ultimately with my reconstruction and revision. Each visit has been respectful of my time, thorough, pleasant and information.

The doctor and the staff were excellent. There was some anxiety between the time I saw my primary care physician and when I was contacted by Legacy. I didn't know how the referral process worked or how quickly my broken finger needed to be dealt with.

Dr. Kim seemed a little rushed, and it was difficult to get a word in edgewise, but overall I felt like things were explained well, and he answered my questions effectively. I feel confident in his abilities as a doctor as well as his commitment to patient care.
