Dr. Kim did my LASIK with ICON Eyecare in December of 2020 and WOW was I impressed with her! She was very calming throughout the entire procedure and talked me through every second of what was happening. I will be recommending her going forward.

This office is awesome! The people working at the front desk even during a pandemic were really nice and professional. Dr. Kim and Dr. Sturdy are the best! They took care of my PRK surgery and made me feel more at ease pre and post-surgery! Highly recommended!!

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.

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.
