I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kim. She is extremely bright. Quickly deals with the health picture as an integrated whole. Really knows her drugs, and when to refer the patient to a specialist. Follows up, and quickly responds to patient correspondence. (At 75, I've experienced a lot. (Bucknell undergrad, Johns Hopkins Teaching Fellow.) Dr. Kim is a standard to measure others against.

Hard to Understand

Very caring, knowledgable and thorough.
Nov 12, 2015
I was diagnosed with tendinopathy and was sent to physicial therapy. PT wouldn't touch me because of the pain and inflammation. PT called my PCP for an immediate referral to ortho. This isn't a criticism of the physician, but sometimes it seems there is a rush to judgment because of the limited time they can spend with patients. This physician also had tendinopathy and I think that was that. The physical therapy appointment seemed much more detailed in asking questions and finding the source of my pain and figuring out what was going on with me.
Nov 10, 2015
It wasn't that it was a bad experience necessarily dr. Kim just doesn't have a very good bed side manner. She was concerned about out health which is good but she told me that being this heavy at my age is unacceptable and even thou I don't like my weight either I have dropped 60 pounds in a year and a half and am struggling with the last couple and she wasn't very kind about it even after I explained that to her. I agree and she was concerned but she doesn't choose her words wisely.
Nov 10, 2015
Dr. Kim is a great provider. I have anxiety/panic disorder, and she's helped me realize the range of symptoms that can cause when I'm in a fit of thinking 100 other things are wrong with me. My only concern is that she had prescribed me to anti-depressants before. I consulted the psychologist I was seeing at the time, and we both concluded that was extremely misguided, as I am very clearly not depressed at all. I will say, though, that even in that situation, Dr. Kim was very cautious and made sure to start me off at a low dose and warn me that I could stop them if the side effects were unfavorable. In a general sense, I think Geisinger providers could be much less prescription happy. No patient feels cared about and properly evaluated if their appointment results in nothing more than "take this pill and tell me how you feel in 2 weeks."
Nov 9, 2015
Really like Dr. Kim
Nov 9, 2015
Care provider did not satisfy me that necessary referals will come to be actually scheduled. This area is weak. The answer is usually "If they do not contact you please, call the department yourself. I view this as if it were a doctors order, and it should be followed up appropriately by utilizing a Geisinger TEAM approach.
Nov 4, 2015
I felt as though Dr. never rushed and actually enjoyed her job! She was happy and it was great to have such great care by such a great person AND doctor. I honestly walked out of the clinic feeling extremely thankful and blessed!

My interaction with Dr. Kim has been beyond excellent. She is very knowledgeable, shares information on the computer read out and does an excellent job explaining the chart and my corresponding questions. My prior GP retired and was good but she exceeds his good record in my opinion.

Sep 25, 2015
I have great confidence in Dr. Kim and have recommended her many times. She is always very direct, thorough and easy to understand. Dr. Kim caught my attention when arrived, having replaced Dr. Tobin. I was struck by how complete her exam was with my mother as well as her directions and instructions to her in order to help her help herself in managing her healthcare issues. Dr. Kim has never swayed from her approach and she NEVER makes us feel rushed, pressured or insignificant during the course of our appointment.
Sep 23, 2015
She is always concerned and is very helpful. I have a lot of faith in her as my Doctor

Dr. Kim is the best KC doctor I have had in the 30 years I have been going there. Recommending her to others would mean less available time for me. Now that I have a great doctor, why would I want to share her!

I am very confident in Dr Kim. she had change some of my medications since I've been with her and she has been working on getting me better care. my health is not good and she has a lot to do to get me where I should be, and she is working with several department trying to get me the appointment that I need so the I can get the correct care.

She was very nice, but I didnt like how she said that some of my levels where low without even checking them with bloodwork then put me on medication to maintain them.
May 4, 2015
I have been a KC patient for over 30 years. Dr. Kim is the one of the best KC doctors. The only think about recommending her to others is that her schedule will fill up. Do not lose her.
