Good experience.
Dec 18, 2015
Dr. Kim is truly a kind and compassionate physician. I couldn't be happier with her as my primary care doctor.
Dec 16, 2015
Very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, compassionate and thorough. An asset to the organization.
Dec 15, 2015
Dr Kim is the best :) I appreciate her so much and she gets things done. She is very thorough.
Dec 15, 2015
I was very comfortable and I never feel rushed with Dr. Kim.
Dec 11, 2015
My only complaint was...I wish that xrays had been ordered on my hand. I explained I had alot of pain and I was hoping that xrays would be ordered to see if there are any issues.
Dec 10, 2015
I am very impressed with Dr. Kim's competence and professionalism.
Dec 9, 2015
First time I saw Dr. Kim. I was very impressed by her.
Dec 8, 2015
I developed shingles near my eye. Dr. Kim confirmed the shingles and arranged a same day appointment with the Ophthalmologist. Great care.
Nov 24, 2015
My doctor is the best
Nov 23, 2015
The time spent with my PCP is short. I make a list of my concerns in order to use the time in the efficient way.
Nov 19, 2015
The doctor was excellent
Nov 19, 2015
Dr. Kim was not courteous at all. I am 26 years old and I always get the impression she is treating me like a kid and kind of talking down to me.
Nov 18, 2015
Excellent care! She listens and answers any questions or concerns. Exceptional. Thank you.
Nov 16, 2015
Hard to Understand
Nov 14, 2015
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!
Oct 27, 2015
felt well cared for by doctor
Oct 23, 2015
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.
Oct 21, 2015
Dr. Suk was very attentive and thorough. This was my first visit.

Sep 28, 2015
Dr. Kim is about as good as a Doctor can be. She's very attentive to all conditions and questions. She is ready for all problems.
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
Sep 22, 2015
Dr Kim is the greatest
Sep 18, 2015
love Dr Kim, she is great!
Sep 4, 2015
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!
Aug 31, 2015
Dr. Kim was running late before my appt. so I felt she was in HURRY-UP mode. Had little time to ask questions.
Aug 27, 2015
My wife and I both like Dr. Kim very much and appreciate her care and concern for her patients

Aug 18, 2015
I trust the judgement of Dr. Kim with my care. She has always been caring and pushing me to do what I need, even when I had "challenged" a specific course of treatment (and she was absolutely right)
Aug 17, 2015
I am very happy to have Dr. Kim as my primary care physician. She is very thorough and always reviews my labs, etc., and offers explanations. She is an excellent doctor. GMC is lucky to have her.

Dr. Kim is the greatest. I have recommended several people to her. She more than makes up for the unfriendly receptionists and occassional grumpy nurse. Nurse at this visit was very pleasant and friendly.
June 29, 2015
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. I used to be a Evangelical and unfortunately they were just letting me just hang in the wind. Now Dr. KIm is left to pick up the pieces.

May 6, 2015
Doctor Kim seems very compassionate and thorough. I was well pleased in meeting her for the first time.
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.
Apr 27, 2015
Dr. Kim is a true professional with the skill to make you feel at ease with thorough, easy to understand explanations. I enjoy our visits.
Apr 27, 2015
Felt rushed in appt. - This is why I usually like my provider only since he is familiar with my health and concerns - Dr. Gibson is one of the best.
Apr 27, 2015
Dr Kim is simply the best. She helped our family navigate a stressful and difficult situation. She absolutely understood the situation and was able to help our mother understand it as well. Superb doctor!

March 26, 2015
dr. Kim was great. Showed a lot of concern for the problems I explained. Took a lot of time to explain things to me.
March 19, 2015
She was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable, but my GI issues have been an ongoing significant issue and I didn't feel confident that she understood the relation of my symptoms to the past. Then again, it was a same-day appointment and she is not my primary care doctor.
March 18, 2015
I was not very happy with this visit. What the doc prescribed for me did not even work. I call back for other medication on March 27th. Unfortunately, I still feel like crap.
March 18, 2015
I'm very satisfied with my PCP!
