Dr. Kim was wonderful. From the moment I met him, through my post op, he has been nothing short of compassionate. He is very skilled in what he does, and I came through my surgery (4 weeks ago) without any complications. I was very comfortable with the verbage he used to explain the procedure, along with his bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone, and I would go back and use him all over again.

So far so good...can't say I really have any complaints. If there was anything negative about the experience, it would be all the time I had to wait around the hospital to do labs and meet all of the surgical staff the day before surgery, and additional having to pay for parking (which added up quickly). But the doctors, nurses and hospital staff were very nice, patient and understanding.


My first impression of Dr. Kim was a very pleasant and friendly doctor. He was nonthreatening and did not rush me,but took his time answering any and all questions I had, very knowledgeable of the procedure and with plenty of experience. During preop, before and after surgery, he was there to guide me through the process and reassure myself and my husband that everything was going according to plans. When I still wasn't feeling well the day after surgery and not ready to go home, he made the necessary adjustments and had compassion. Never once being judgemental towards the way I was feeling. I stayed another day and he came to see me each time to make sure I was comfortable. This doctors bedside manner and overall surgical competence were both outstanding. I would recommend him to anyone else looking for a Kaiser Permanente Bariatric surgeon.
