I went to Dr. Kim for a 2nd opinion for my hemorrhoid. I was seen in a almost closet space that barely had room for me to undress, no place for my clothes except perhaps the top of the toilet. He explained very little and told me I was not a candidate for banding which I did have done by another doctor along with several other options. Dr Kim said I could only have the complete surgery. When he was finished with the exam he left the probe sleeve next to me instead of discarding it and it fell to the floor when I got up. I was never asked for my info or co-pymt and it was submitted to the insurance as a surgery which costs me $150.00 co-pymt for a bogus appt. Very unprofessional and I would NEVER go back!

This was the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor visit. First of all I saw the NP Amber , she made me feel like I was a bother to her . As I sat in the chair she told me to stand and pull my pants down then she took three steps back and bent over to pretend to look at the affected area, which made me feel like she didn't want to be near me. I said pretend to looks at because there was no way she could have seen the problem from that position. Then she talked with the nurse to tell he...
On 1/24/18 my mother had an elective heart valve repair, the surgery went very wrong, what should have taken four hours took nearly ten hours and my mother needed 22 pints of blood.
