Dr. Kim requested an MRI and they can't take me in until the 23rd. I wish the appointment would be sooner. Little disappointed in that.

My appointment was at 10:45 in the morning, which is good, but I have to wait in line and I'm kind of hand, handicap and there was only one person receiving the people. So I have to wait in line and the line was out to the to the door. In fact that line for door was open for the line. I think maybe if somebody would see that the line is long that they would come up and to help that person. And that's all I have to say.

Since nothing has changed since my last appointment with Dr. Kim. I did not feel that this appointment was necessary or could have been done on the phone.

I really enjoyed meeting Dr. Kim. He discussed both options for treatment for me and he was very thorough, explain everything extremely well, he's very friendly, professional and I am very happy that he's going to be my surgeon when I, when I have my surgery, thank you.

I felt that Dr. Kim was extremely...point blank, rude to me. I didn't feel like he really...understood or even look into my case that much without making a decision and not offering me other options that might pertain to my care. So no, I will not be back to him. I don't feel like he...he just made it seem like he was going to have to remove a mole from my chest instead of actually paying attention to the fact that having that having a mastectomy, which should have been handled in a different manner, so I will not be back. Thank you.

I think you can improve by not calling the house at 7:30 at night you know people go to sleep, my parents, go to sleep early. So, 7:30 is a late time to be doing a survey. Thank you.
