Dr. Keith Kim is an excellent doctor. He spends the necessary time to talk and guide you and answer any questions you may have about your situation. He is kind, courteous and very informative. He follows up very well on patients. I would definitely recommend him to others. Great experience I have had with this doctor.

my visit in the office was good but, when I was admitted to the hospital I found this provider to have no time for me or to address my concerns I saw his partner more than him and when I was discharged from the hospital he was not available for follow up appointment or or any concerns after discharge nurse states he was out of the office. Dr. Kim is frequently out of the office and since I have a complexed history I find that there are times when he is a great provider and then there are times when he seems to not care at all. I have been his patient for almost 10 years now and I am finding it disappointing with the inconsistency of his treatment unfortunately I don't have any options because other providers will not take me do to my history.

Dr. Kim was patient and very kind. Not one time did he look at his watch or get up to leave while I was talking with him. He spoke with me and explained things with ease. His passion for what he does is obvious. I feel safe in his hands. we are blessed to have such a wonderful and caring surgeon amongst us.
