Dr. Kim gave me much needed information about my condition and had a strong plan about what to do to help me while at the same time educating me regarding my heart issues. I felt concern and positivity from her.

Dr. Kim is hands-down, by-far-and-away, the best physician with whom I have ever had the opportunity to interact. (I've seen more than a few over my many years.) She is the acme of professionalism and the apotheosis of empathy. Her patience and attention to detail were beyond any description I might provide.

I would recommend Dr. Kim and her nurse without any hesitation! They are caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable. Dr. Kim took the time to address my cardiac needs as well as allowed me to share my concerns. She is absolutely phenomenal!

She made the effort to see me between other scheduled patients. I could tell that she was prepared and had reviewed my chart as well as developed a plan for my treatment. She was also able to find a slot for an MRI appointment the following day.

Dr Kim is personable, approachable, shares her knowledge with me in terms I understand. I feel confident that she considers my individual case and doesn’t lump me into a group of maybe’s or possible’s. I’m an individual to her.

I am confident in and trust the technical expertise of Doctor Kim. In addition, she clearly and completely answered my questions. I did not feel that she was in a hurry. She gave her full attention. Her staff was very helpful and professional.

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.
