Very confident with dr Kim

By Cedars-Sinai Patienton Sep 22, 2021

He's an excellent doctor, explains everything very clearly and very confident of himself make you feel that you are in safe hands and confident with your doctor. He's a very helpful, smart and energetic doctor that makes you leave the office when you're very happy and feel confident that you're going to be okay.
