Dr. Peter Kim is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever met. The wonderful prayer he gave just before surgery put me and my family at ease.
Dr. Kim really cares and keeps up on the latest breakthrough procedures. And, most of all, it means so much that he prays with you before surgery.
Dr. Kim is my hero. I am so impressed with him. I would recommend him to everyone.
