These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I came in with three concerns one being vertigo I experienced while out of the country. Dr Kim tried to test my dizziness in the office which I could not do since the exam table was so short. The vertigo returned after my appointment and I was referred to Providence Rehab for Therapy which did solve the inner ear problem.

Phlebotomist was a little tuff on my arm. Dr. Kim sent me to the hospital lab instead of the office lab. I have had my blood tested many times over the past 8 years. Haven't been bruised like this before.

03/24/2017
I had a list of questions for Dr. Kim as well as a couple of comments I wanted him to know. Dr. Kim asked me a question to understand my statement more completely. Thus, his answers to me have been and are informative and understandable. He gives me a more complete understanding of the question so I am more informed and can thus, make a decision with more knowledge. That is what I call empowerment. I have never felt rushed or a sense of feeling I need more time with him. The sensation I leave his office with is "I am well cared for. He is knowledgable and able to explain well what I need to know. I feel confident in his care. I am grateful he is my physician."

The only complaint I have is, after you have seen the Dr. and go to make a follow up appointment, you really can't tell if the receptionist is on the phone or not. more than once I've walked up, and started to talk only to find out they are talking on the phone......then I feel like a real dummy
