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 26
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.

June 13
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.

May 17
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.

Apr 26
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.

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.

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.

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!
