I always recommend dr Kim highly to others
Jan 19
Could not get a more passionate and caring provider. Do not loose her.
Dec 29, 2016
Dr. Kim is very thorough! She listens and recognizes my needs. This visit was to prepare for a missions trip; Dr. Kim covered many health issues to be aware of and what to do if they occur. I feel confident that I will be "healthy" throughout my trip!
Dec 23, 2016
not clear about the side effects of the prescription , while I developed severe side effects to this medication it is hard to get hold of her
Dec 21, 2016
She listened. I do think it would be helpful to also see dermatology for the skin issue. I called back after seeing her December 21 to suggest seeing dermatology. I was called back from dermatology same day. I am scheduled tomorrow to see dermatology so thank you to all. Dr. Kim does care. She does a great job!
Dec 21, 2016
she was very thorough and complete. no nonsense and right to the point. I was very satisfied!
Dec 19, 2016
Dr. Kim is a good doctor, whom I have confidence in.
Dec 6, 2016

Nov 18, 2016
Dr Kim is great! I would highly recommend her :)
Nov 16, 2016
Best doctor I've every had!
Nov 15, 2016
The doctor seemed to rush through the examination process. I feel the the examination was abrupt and not well executed. I remained fully clothed while she quickly examined me. I should of asked her if she had xray vision!
Nov 15, 2016
Really like Dr. Kim.
Nov 14, 2016
She didn't agree with my visit and diagnosis when I was admitted to hospital by a cardio doctor. She literally told me i did not have that problem he said I did. That really upset me due to the fact who do you believe. Your pcp or the cardio doctor. Even after I ask the cardio doctor again if I had it, he said YES! Now look where that leaves me. ?????? Scratching my head. This happens often more than I like with Geisinger doctors. No communication between doctors or one basically say the other doctor is wrong. Then like I said your stuck scratching you head wondering who is telling you the truth. The fact that it involved me heart that really really upset me big time. I only ever had one pcp doctor that actually communicated with the other doctors. Shame she left. I actually move to doc kim cuz of having the same problems with my pcp before doc kim.
Nov 11, 2016
I went for a referral to see a podiatrist because of foot pain and the doctor was more concerned about changing my BP meds and ordering blood work for the following week. I never received a call for podiatry and when the doc sent me for an xray I wasn't sure if my visit was over or not. She sent me the results of the xray but did not explain the plan of care. I had to assume I had to call to schedule an appointment with podiatry.
Nov 7, 2016
End of day appt. Felt rushed out.
Oct 31, 2016
We're so happy with Dr. Kim. She's great. My husband told me that I made a very good election selecting our primary doctor.
Oct 20, 2016
Dr. Kim is such a caring and compassionate provider. She takes time to listen. She is extremely thorough in her physical exam and work-up. She is simply the best.
Oct 19, 2016
I had seen Dr. Kim as my PCP was unavailable for a reschedule yearly check-up until March 2017, but it was nice not to have to wait 40 - 50 minutes past my appointment to be seen, since that is the normal with my normal PCP.
Oct 19, 2016
Dr. Kim is always concerned, she's familiar with your chart, and aware of your health concerns, labs and what needs to be addressed.
Oct 14, 2016

Jul 28, 2016
I just hate when I've had a appt scheduled for over 6 months and I had a lot to say and I felt rushed and this is not the first time and I leave and say what just happened now I can always check in on MyGeisinger but when I'm there I want to discuss things then
Jul 27, 2016
Dr. Kim is always very caring. She has helped me to deal with my problem.
Jul 26, 2016
This DR. came to me as a surprise. It did not take me long to decide I needed to switch to her, I felt much more comfortable talking to her then my previous PCP. I believe it was because of her interest in my problems, and concerns! My other PCP eaw great, but was more interested in getting my RX"S into the computer as I had so many. He was not upto date on my tests etc. She immediately noticed and ordered the EKG"S, EcoCariogram, and other Labs that I was behaind in. She is also more concerned in finding out what is behind my complaints and is trying to find out the reason behind them! I feel we may be on the right trac even though I am going to Physical Therapy, it is causing me more pain, instead of less, and I feel it is not helping, I will push thru and do what they want till I complete the course of PT. then they can not say I did not try.
Jul 25, 2016

Jul 5, 2016
This doctor basically ignored the reason I was there and went on a tangent about an issue I do NOT have. I am still sick!!

June 13, 2016
Dr Kim is very good but you cant spend enough time with her to fully go over everything with her - seems she is always rushing and doesn't really want to tackle any new problems or questions that you have but I feel it is not her fault because of her clinic load and the time allotted to each visit.
June 9, 2016

First time at GMC that I had that thorough of an exam. Very nice experience.
May 17, 2016
I met with the care provider for just a few moments. I went in with serve lower abdominal, just pushed on me twice and told me to go home that I strained my muscles. No tests were provided (I mentioned to the doctor that there was a possibility of pregnancy), no additional questions, etc. I left very upset. I went home and took a home pregnancy test, which was positive.

First visit so #10 would be premature.
Apr 26, 2016
dr kim has been good in my care so far, but in this visit which was a pre op clearance she seemed rushed. I asked for a refill on migraine medicine that I was prescribed by GMC neurology years ago, she was reluctant to refill. I last filled in feb so it is used sparingly. She went on to tell me that migraines lessen as we age. Unless you are a migraine sufferer that does not help how you feel, and I was made to feel like I was abusing something. She did end up filling the medication, but I feel it made the rest of the visit uncomfortable.
Apr 19, 2016
I love Dr. Kim. she is very caring, kind, and respectful.
