"As always, Dr. Kim provided excellent care, empathy and follow up during and after my most recent follow up visit. He listened to my questions addressed my needs and allayed my concerns. After getting an unexpected elevated PSA result following this visit, Dr Kim quickly responded to my concerns and explained next steps to address. I’m blessed to be under the outstanding care of Dr. Kim and his nurse assistant Lupe."
