She is outstanding. She’s extremely encouraging but above all she is honest and transparent. She will not sugarcoat your situation, she lays it all out on the table and gives you a realistic picture of what can and might not happen. That’s what’s most important.

I ask people questions for a living. She assumed that my other doctors had not done their job instead of that they were being tactful. She kept asking me the same questions over and over hoping to get a different answer. Perhaps this doctor should recognize that everyone does not drink or have a diagnosis. Somewhat tacky. Her questions bothered me. Also, everyone seems more focused on if I’m married instead of why I want to have a baby or if I thought about seeing having a baby. I can see why she had openings.

Dr. Kim is an excellent doctor. She gives very clear medical advice and lets you know the reasons behind her decisions.

This was our second ultrasound and last appointment before “graduating� and it felt very rushed, not celebratory, and it was hard to capture and understand all the data that was being measured about our baby.

Dr Kim and Nurse Jessica have helped me feel relaxed and ready for the next few months/cycles no matter the outcome. I'm elated to feel in control of my endometriosis and fertility rather than letting it continue to control me. Dr Kim has helped me not just take this one step at a time, but prepare for multiple options and outcomes. Psychologically I feel ready for whatever the next step is in this process.
