He is a very calm professional which is great for me. He has been able to extend me from knee replacement with Orthovisc injections. They lasted 1 year ! He is an excellent doctor. Office staff helpful and knowledgeable!
I took my mom to Dr David Kim a month ago. My mom is 86 years old and suffering from knee and shoulder pain. Dr David kim was carless and unfriendly. He hardly even examined her knee or shoulder area. He was rushing out to take care of another patient. I am sorry that such people get a degree in medicine. They are not there to cure and help. The only thing they care about is money. There should be a humanity test before they receive a degree. The staff are the same as the doctor, rude, unfriendly and unorganized. I have never experienced such treatment before. when I booked her appointment I told them what insurance she had and if they covered it. They said yes, but after a month they told me they were sorry and they didn't accept that insurance. A week later they charged my mom $185 dollar for 5 minutes doctor's visit. If this is not a ripoff what it is??? I don't give this doctor any star, but I had no other choice to select one. I suggest Google add negative points to their charts.
6 months ago I requested an MRI or better than just a CT scan on my shoulder as an athlete and chef. He came in for 5 minutes and told me it would heal in 3-6 weeks For AC joint separation, months later now I found out it’s multiple tears in ligaments and my rotator cuff requiring surgery -still can’t sleep on my side, which they refused to look at. Got a bill for 1400$ Don’t bother
Excellent experience. I was referred by Dr. Kim by my PT and the entire team did not disappoint. Friendly, timely, organized and helpful. From the front desk to X-rays to Dr. Kim, everyone was great.Dr. Kim thoroughly explained my condition and all of the potential courses of action INCLUDING referring me to another surgeon who may be a better fit for my shoulder issue.If I am not a candidate for that surgery, I will definitely come back to Dr. Kim.
Dr Kim is an amazing doctor. He has performed arthroscopic patella knee surgery on me in 2011 and in 2019 performed a repair of my ruptured achilles tendon. Both turned out well and I was able to return to the active lifestyle I enjoy. Dr. Kim is very patient, thoughtful and thorough. He will take the time to explain his treatment plan and work with you on the right solution.
I suffered a shoulder injury while training with my Jiujitsu sparring partners. I needed to find a top level Orthopedic Surgeon in Orange County who could repair my shoulder to handle the stresses I put on it at times. I liked what I read about Dr. Kim's training and affiliation, so I called his office to set up an appointment. Dr. Kim set me up for an MRI to accurately diagnosed my injury. The MRI showed I had a completely torn rotator cuff tendon, along with other damage to my labrum and biceps tendon. Dr. Kim's office staff guided me through the pre-surgery and post-surgery process. Special thanks to Mulani for the pre-surgery help...she is a life saver! Thank you too Melissa for your post-surgery help. Dr Kim performed surgery on my shoulder, and everything went exactly like he said it would. My shoulder recovery has been going great. It's getting stronger every week, along with increasing range of motion. My shoulder movement is very smooth! Thank you Dr. Kim! and Melissa!
Dr. Kim repaired my torn labrum about 8 years ago. I remember being pleased with my visits and the results of the surgery. No exaggeration, I was bench pressing more than I’d ever done my entire life exactly 12 months after the surgery—I wrestled in high school and have lifted weights my entire life, by the way.
Dr. Kim just performed shoulder surgery on my 18 yr old son. We saw 3 different orthopedic surgeons and chose to go with Dr. Kim. So glad we did. He is a caring, skilled dr. Scheduling the surgery was a breeze. Every one of his staff members we have dealt with have been friendly and professional.
First the receptionist(jason) didn't informed me were to park or were Dr Kim's office was at the rather large outpatient hospital. Second the parking is horrible,random people taking all the patient parking spots. It took me 10 minutes to get a spot close to front door. Then when I saw the parking security lady and informed her of what I saw. She just looked at me like I was crazy and I was bothering her. Third strike, this office is BUSY ! (Money) people in and people out while I waited (fast food medicine). I then got my turn with Dr David Kim and I felt very rushed and very much like a number ! Finally straw, I thought I could get an MRI done in their office..nope . I got a referral ? ! I could have done that myself . Haha. My ppo allows for self referrals, don't need an orthopaedics to do so. Very annoyed and disappointed this office was a referral from my great chiropractor too. At least I got a fancy knee brace out of the deal. All be it probably chg insurance $1000 for it.
Dr. Kim's surgical skills, time spent with you in pre and post office visits, staff communication and over all professionalism is as stellar as it can get. I highly recommend him and his partner Dr. Gibson
Love the new office. Dr. Kim has been my Dr. For a long long time. Outstanding.
Dr. Kim was very rude and barely looked at me the entire consultation because he was looking down and texting on an ipad. He was not providing guidance when I asked how he would help for my rhinoplasty questions. He made me feel uncomfortable and I felt he was condescending in the way he spoke to me. I don't think he took me seriously and didn't give me the time of day. It was very disappointing and I'd never go to him again.
DR. DAVID KIM, is an outstanding physician/surgeon!!! Dr. Kim operated on my knee, where I had a chipped bone. And every step of the way it was comforting to know I was in extremely good care! His office staff too are very professional and courteous! I recommend him highly! Thank you Dr. Kim, I was blessed to have you as my Doctor!
Dr Kim is a very kind, caring and informative doctor. He makes you comfortable.
I have had two surgeries by Dr. Kim and couldn't be more happy. He stabilized my shoulder so it wouldn't keep dislocating and he has done a knee arthroscopy procedure for a meniscus tear. I had very little pain after surgery and the recovery process was smooth with no setbacks. I am back playing sports with no problems. I can't recommend him enough. He is very trustworthy and will give you an honest opinion on your problem. Go see him if you have a sports injury.
He is an amazing knowledgeable professional. I highly recommend him. He knows his stuff, has great bedside manner and excellent follow up. His office staff are professional and efficient. They are a very organized office and he is a spectacular doctor. I highly recommend him. Additionally, he trained under Karlen Jobe. Great experience. Full recovery with 100% full rotation and no problems. Thanks Dr Kim
I was sent to him by another orthopedic surgeon to have shoulder surgery. He took the time to listen to my story, reviewed all my MRIs, and did a thorough exam. It turned out that Dr. Kim didn't think I needed surgery and thought I could heal with therapy and time. Sure enough he was right! My shoulder feels great and I am back playing my sports!! He is an amazing doctor and I felt that he had my best interests in mind. He could have easily done an operation on me as I was fully expecting it but he gave me the best option. I highly recommend him as an honest, caring, and trusted doctor. You can't go wrong with him!
Dr. Kim is exceptional in his field of Orthopedics. He is also one of the most caring and thorough doctors we have known. Takes his time with you and is always available if needed.
I was recommended to see Dr. Kim by my physical therapist who said his patients always did well and healed a lot quicker after surgery when compared to other surgeons. Sure enough, last year I had knee surgery and my knee healed up perfectly. I even had shoulder surgery earlier this year and once again, I had a great result. He is a very talented surgeon.My experience with his office staff was excellent. They were very helpful and got me in quickly to see him. They were always courteous and pleasant. I would disregard the other review bad mouthing his staff--it wasn't my experience at all. He is definitely worth seeing if you have a sports injury or other orthopedic problem.
I saw him on a recommendation from my personal trainer. He ended up having to fix my knee with surgery and I had an ACL repair with meniscus repair. He has a great bedside manner and is very caring. He is a talented surgeon and the surgery went very smoothly and I had very little pain (well except for the first couple days). I am back snowboarding and playing soccer with no problems whatsoever. I recommend him highly!!
