National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2023
Dr. Kim was very efficient in her time getting up to speed on why I was visiting. She was also patient with me not having all of the details on my family history, which factors pretty heavily into the condition we are looking into. She has great bedside manner and did an excellent job of moving forward with a plan regardless of the information I was able to provide.
