Jin-Hee Kim, MD, is a Diplomate of the American Board of Urology. She was drawn to urology by a desire to add some gender diversity to the largely male field. Dr. Kim currently practices at The Urology Clinic, PC.
"I was strongly influenced by the urologists I met during my training," she says. "They were a universally nice group of people. I also saw the lack of female presence in the world of urology and thought this needed to be remedied."
Dr. Kim enjoys the mix of different patients she sees in her job, and says the combination of office work and surgery is immensely fulfilling. Although she practices general urology and sees the full gamut of urologic patients, a high percentage of her patients are women.
"Women tend to feel more comfortable seeing women doctors, especially in this field," Dr. Kim says. "I am very proud to be fulfilling that need."
In her free time, Dr. Kim enjoys horseback riding, traveling and reading.
