Dr Kim is patient, concise, answers questions in layman’s terms. And clearly talented when it comes to removing tumors! His followup call was so appreciated and helped understand next steps, medication, etc. could not have asked for anyone better.

Dr. Kim was my lung surgeon for a procedure one year ago. I had a very good experience with his surgery and care afterwards. He, his staff and the the staff at Northwestern were wonderful during a very scary time for me.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
