I am so happy i didn’t settle with just any doctor and found Dr Kim. I happily recommend her to anyone who is looking to have some sort of eye surgery done.

Healthgrades Review

I was absolutely petrified at the prospect of a cataract operation. Dr. Kim’s calm, kind, professional manner allayed my fears. The operation was a piece of cake. Dr. Kim is a fantastic physician. I am devastated that she is moving, but I wish her the best.

- Elisabeth K.

Outside of work, Dr. Kim loves spending time with her family. She and her husband Chuck have three amazing children who inspire her to be the best mother and doctor that she can be. As a family, they love to ski and attend the many sporting events in which the children are involved.
