Dr. Kim was very insightful. I felt she was going through the motions of the appointment though rather than seeing me as a person. She would interrupt me frequently when I tried to express my concerns and ask questions completely unrelated to what we were talking about. I understand there is a lot to cover quickly but I felt like a chart rather than a person and wish she had given me more space to talk. She may be the expert on fertility but im the expert on my lived experience. There were things I had written down that I wanted to discuss but since I felt she already had a diagnosis on me before I even logged into the call I didn’t feel it was even worth bringing up. I left the call a bit put off. This is a sensitive area and I felt there could’ve been a lot more sensitivity and personalization in the appointment.

It felt like the physician did not thoroughly read my chart prior to SIS. She also mentioned something was abnormal which really caused anxiety given my health history. I wish she would have explained or assured more.l given my history. I felt like the team was not all on the same page

I found her bedside manner to be lacking. I experienced an anxious time in my pregnancy and I found her to be a bit negative and only highlighting the possible negative outcomes. My ultrasound and blood work were completely normal and I felt her tone and message were just off.
