August 05, 2022
I felt very comfortable and loved my visit. Office was nice and clean.

Teresa Kim is an excellent nurse practitioner!
August 04, 2022
Yes, Teresa Kim was very nice, very professional. I liked her, she helped me out a great deal. The only problem was I did have to wait in the room for quite some time. Other than that, I had great service. Thank you.

I feel like somebody should be out directing people on the traffic flow of your parking structure. Took me like over 10 minutes to find parking and I was already running behind for my appointment, so it made me extremely late. So that would be my main thing for that location in Lakewood, anyways thank you. Bye.

The office was clean. The staff were attentive. My ratings were mainly influence by my interaction with the doctor. The doctor is knowledgeable and comes across intelligently. However, the matter of fact way of delivering information, for me, personally, doesn't satisfy my expectations of human interactions. There are gestures of compassion and attentiveness that help me establish a permanent relationship with a doctor. Unfortunately, I didn't feel that way. However, the interaction was still respectful and professional. I will remark that my ratings are influenced by personal preference.

The parking garage at this location is the PITS. Need some kind of arrangement to provide more patient parking. THE PITS, I SAY!!!!!

This time it was a condition that could wait 3 days, am concerned about seeing a doctor sooner if the condition required it, but did not need 911.

Dr Teresa nice and very profesional thank you
July 19, 2022
Everyone at this office is always very attentive to my needs and they treat me with respect. I really do appreciate the time and considerate behavior of everyone who helps me here. This was my first time seeing Teresa Kim and she impressed me with the thoroughness of her questions regarding my visit, observations, and attentiveness to all of my needs. I am happy that she is now a part of the Los Alamitos team!

Yes, I like to say that you're very blessed to have such a wonderful doctor there, Dr. Kim. She listens very carefully and I feel like I can go ahead and say things that I need to say over the phone and this is a blessing that somebody is listening, very carefully. Thank you very much and thank you for having Dr. Kim.

The nurse was very nice.
July 15, 2022
Everyone was so helpful and treated my concerns. Dr. Kim and her assistant, (name removed) listened to all my concerns. I will definitely recommend them!
July 14, 2022
I missed my first telephone appointment in the am as I am on the east coast and forgot about the time difference. Although the PA was totally booked for the rest of the day, they squeezed me in at the end of the day, for which I am totally grateful! Thank you!
July 11, 2022
I ask to see A particular specialist in a particular area and she was more than compliant appliant and that helped me a lot to feel better about it
July 11, 2022
The front desk staff was very good. The MA showed up and treated me as if she was in a hurry.
July 11, 2022
I had a question about my Pap test. Still not sure what she meant. It looks cancerous .... But not ????
July 08, 2022
Dr. Kim was thorough and understanding and was able to give me guidance on the health situation I'm having.
July 05, 2022
I would definitely want Dr. Kim to be my doctor if I were looking for a primary dr. I would choose her. She was personable, kind, and knowledgeable. She asked questions and listened. She was adept and skilled.
June 30, 2022
Thank you
June 24, 2022
The staff was super nice and friendly. The NP was very nice and professional as well, she explained the steps of the procedure so I could know what was going to happen
June 24, 2022
I love my regular Doctor but her vacation replacement was just as awesome!. I love my doctor's at PIH so much thank you!
June 24, 2022
Taking an 8 am appointment doesn't get fresh day interactions from the staff. The gal who checked me in was all business. Not a fit for ME
June 20, 2022
Great experience
June 10, 2022
The doctor didn't listen to what I asked her to do.
June 08, 2022
It was positive and Dr Teresa K. also completed my doc expeditiously so I could get my handicap placard
June 08, 2022
I had a great experience. The Dr. did a wonderful job in accessing my condition and giving me just what I needed to complete this work. After this work was completed I felt so much better. The nurse also did a great job. Thank you.
June 07, 2022
Doctor didn't do a complete physical exam. It seems like now in days doctor are in a rush and don't take the proper time to listen, ask questions, and care for the patient.
June 07, 2022
My visit with Dr. Kim was the worse I've ever experienced with any doctor. Dr. Kim was dismissive of my explanation for the condition that I went in to see her for. She came off as a very condescending and careless person. She spent less than 10 minutes with me and the whole time never once came over to thoroughly inspect my condition. She proceeded to write me a prescription steroid and sent me out the door. And when asked about the prescription, and if there were any negative long-term side effects, she appeared irritated.
June 06, 2022
Hi, this is for Teresa Kim. Teresa Kim is always on top of our game when it comes to me, she always has the right answer and she can put it in words that I can understand, which is, Really. Really nice. So that's all I have but I really like having my doctor's nurse practitioner Kim
June 01, 2022
Hi. Teresa Kim was very helpful. She answered all of my questions, and she definitely was very helpful in answering or answering any of my concerns. She was definitely someone who took her time to ensure that I was happy with my visit, and that I didn't have any other questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend her to other people. Thank you.
May 26, 2022
Very professional and helpful. Gave me good advice and gave me the medicine I needed. Feeling much better. Thank you for helping me in my time of need. ???
May 23, 2022
All was very good.
May 20, 2022
Very professional and friendly
May 16, 2022
I need to find on the phone because, you know no doctor found on the weekend, and I'm really sick right now, and I don't know what to do. If you got to this message, call me back. Appreciate or anyone doctor call me. Goodbye.
May 12, 2022
Usually I feel nervous when I go for my Pap Smear exam but I didn't this time. I felt confidence and comfortable.
April 28, 2022
April 28, 2022
They generally shared my concern about my situation are very kind and courteous in helping me understand and make choices to help with my condition
April 26, 2022
My daughter and I came and she came in within a timely manner, but she had all my paperwork ready and all that good stuff, and she went over a few things with me and I could answer them, and she was just a really nice lady. I don't know. I had confidence in her and all that good stuff. And she was short, that was funny, but that's not really funny, but I was surprised I guess. But she is very nice person and I think she and I will get along just fine. So, that's my comment. We liked her very much. That's it.
April 08, 2022
Hi, I just wanted provide feedback regarding the staff and the provider they were excellent. They treated me with respect. And, and I would definitely go back. Kudos to the, to the team keep doing the job that you're doing. It is very greatly appreciated. Thank you.
April 07, 2022
I don't plan on seeing this provider again.
April 06, 2022
I really like that my doctor is always aware of what I need, that gives me confidence in her!
April 04, 2022
When I went to schedule an appointment for a mammogram - those ladies were not very welcoming. I walked up and was ignored. Then when I asked about making an appointment- no eye contact just told me they are closed. . Not looking forward to having to schedule with them.
March 31, 2022
Teresa Kim is an absolute angel. I'd highly recommend anybody I enjoyed seeing her and I was happy to hear when I got the phone appointment that it was her that was going to take care of me. Again, thank you, Teresa Kim. You were the best.
March 30, 2022
The only thing I'd like to say is that it would be nice if I could see my own doctor, I rarely can get in to see him. This may be the only reason I may change doctors and my plan when my enrollment comes up this year.
March 15, 2022
Other than being told to go to the second floor over the phone and then being told to go to the first floor when I got there, the service was great. Need to work on the communication among the staff.
March 03, 2022
I was most definitely satisfied with the service.
March 01, 2022
The doctor was focused on the task that she needed to complete. She did not give me opportunities to ask questions. When I asked if I could ask a question, she responded "well I can certainly try." It all seemed very doctor focused and not patient focused. I seen this provider because both of my usual providers are out on leave. I would not choose to see this provider again.
February 28, 2022
Very good medical provider
February 28, 2022
Respectful and pleasant
February 25, 2022
The doctor that call me. She was very polite. Very on time. She was before time. I really appreciate it. And all the services are very good. Thank you.
February 25, 2022
Teresa Kim was very attentive and patient which I appreciated. I never felt that she was rushing through the appointment. She listened to my concerns and readily suggested referrals to address those concerns. I hope she will be at PIH location on Artesia permanently.
February 17, 2022
Great care and service offered!! Great People too!!
February 16, 2022
Didn't see my primary dr. T Kim was very nice and explain what my condition.
February 15, 2022
I would like to have an appointment with my doctor. This is not my doctor, so she does not know my history. She was fine, though.
February 11, 2022
This star was very friendly very educated and very helpful.
February 11, 2022
Kind, precise, and attentive
February 08, 2022
I feel satisfied with the attention that was given to me and the most important thing was that you took the time to help me so that I could recover soon, thank you very much. -Teresa Kim
February 03, 2022
Teresa Kim has always been very caring and attentive to my care. She has always provided me with the right medication for my health needs.
January 21, 2022
My experience with a woman dr was more of a surprise was great. Always had a man physician. She seems to really listen.
January 20, 2022
Yeah, everything was excellent. Thank you very much. We'll see you soon.
January 13, 2022
Well, I would like them to last a little longer with one of you explaining to them because sometimes you explain a quick one and they're leaving, I need one to go for a minute or two so that they hear it well, some of them, ok, that exists, the only thing I would like them to pay more attention to in one. Thanks. Bye.
January 12, 2022
I did get a a rather quick appointment with Teresa Kim. That was fine. I did get an appointment rather quickly to come in with my concern, where I didn't get a quick appointment was for a test or diagnostic tests for mammogram and ultrasound. I have some concerns which is why I came in to see Dr. Teresa Kim. And I was able to get in within 2 days and that was perfect. But I was not able to get a mammogram or ultrasound to address my concerns, which is the reason why I needed to see my provider as soon as possible because I had concerns
January 12, 2022
I didn't go into the office. This was a phone visit. Therefore, I couldn't evaluate the office staff.
January 11, 2022
Thank you for having Dr. Kim on staff.
January 11, 2022
Very satisfied
January 11, 2022
They call me on time, she waiting for me to explain my symptoms.then gave me her opinion.
January 07, 2022
It was very good in your work, they are some people who save lives and one of them is Dr. Kim and her assistants second time (unreadable) is treating me and the truth, come on, I'm already negative and fortunately previous treatment and also thank you and I recommend it widely.
December 30, 2021
She presribed me the right medication to get me well.
December 22, 2021
My ultrasound is scheduled for a four weeks later. This is not acceptable. And I did not have the option to go to another PIH to get it sooner. With medical care it is important to get things done in a timely manner. It's ridiculous that I would have to wait over four weeks to get an ultrasound. I want someone to contact me about this.
December 16, 2021
Like Dr Kim she fix me right away
December 16, 2021
Always a pleasure to talk to Teresa
December 13, 2021
That is all.
December 08, 2021
She is always efficient and always treats me great. I really, really am happy with her. I will refer her too many, many of my friends. Thank you, Teresa Kim. Bye.
December 03, 2021
Excellent care.
December 01, 2021
1 on 10. I wanted to see Dr. Doshi, but the earliest appointment with him is end-Dec. If I have a health issue today, should I wait until end-Dec !!!!???? If I cannot wait, then I am directed to another doctor. So what's the point of having a primary physician? Secondly I was directed to a NP, not a doctor. If my co-pay to see a doctor is $65, shouldnt it be lesser if I am seen by a NP ?
November 18, 2021
It was a good experience. I felt like I was treated with respect and dignity. The staff is different from what it was around 2015, meaning the medical assistants and nurses were not rude like the ones from 2015. It's a huge improvement to see actual good people working there now.
November 12, 2021
Not a pleasant visit. I felt the visit was somewhat rushed, not detailed. Was sent to two different locations for lab work,location had 1.5 hr wait time and closed for lunch 11:30 to 3:30 making it impossible for me to get all done in one day. This was very disappointing. Serously thinking about changing medical group
November 08, 2021
Excellent, excellent, excellent!
November 01, 2021
Dr. Kim communicated with me very well, listening, observing and sharing her diagnosis. She gave me clear instructions on how to treat my condition and answered all my questions. I felt very confident in her ability to treat my condition.
October 26, 2021
I was so pleased with how quickly I got in an appointment and when Dr. Kim - Teresa Kim - called, I felt so cared for, so seen, she covered all my needs, and I'm so thankful really that I got the help that he did when he did because I really needed it. Thank you.
October 25, 2021
The care was very efficient. The doctor was very good and kind. Everything was excellent.
October 25, 2021

October 22, 2021

October 21, 2021
I always feel wonderful when I go there. That doctor was wonderful. And all the employees were very nice to me. Yeah, I love them, they're my second family.
October 20, 2021
Had concerns about base of medical condition. Was able to ask all my questions and get answers. Felt much more relaxed after visit. Would really consider changing my primary to Dr Kim.
October 19, 2021
Fully satisfied...

October 11, 2021
Teresa has always been a top notch Nurse Practitioner, and I have recommended her to others close by. All I can say about Teresa and staff is keep up the good work.
