I would like to rate Doctor Kim with a 10.
In 2004 I woke and could not move. It took me several minutes to roll over to get out of bed. I could not sit nor stand. My husband took me to urgent care in St. Paul and they said "Here take a muscle relaxer, you have just pulled a muscle." I cried so hard I know my back and this was no pulled muscle. I saw my doctor and my blood pressure was 190 over xx. My primary doctor ordered a MRI. I was told the next day to see a Neurosurgeon. I was referred to Dr. Kim. I remember sitting in the examining room scared that she too would tell me there was nothing wrong. My husband and I heard her in the hallway gasp "oh my". She came in and showed us the MRI. She said it was the worst herniated disk she had ever seen. It was C3,4 disk had crushed my spinal cord. She rolled her chair over to me, put her hand on my leg and said"If you sneeze, cough the wrong way, or hit a bump too hard you will be a quadriplegic. My husband started to cry with fear. I got an emergency operation. I went home the next morning. She indeed had given me back to my family. It was a miracle.
In 2008, I again blew a disk. Same pain so I knew what it was. I knew because of the skill and compassion Dr. Kim had that I would go to her again. I had an MRI done saw Dr. Kim again and she performed surgery again....this time it was C4,5. She fused the disks. I have plate and a few screws but I was back on my feet in a week, playing with my grand kids like nothing had ever happened. Another miracle.
Oct 11, of this year, I again had a herniated disk. C7/T1. She again operated on me. I am sitting in my home writing this because of the skillful hands of Dr. Kim.
Now I ask you, Is this a doctor you would be afraid to see? Not me or my family. We were treated wonderfully not only by Dr. Kim but by her staff. They were courteous and compassionate beyond compare. This is a Dr. that not once, not twice, but three times saved me from a fate that could have been far worse. She gave me back to my family and there is no greater gift than that.
Dr Kim is our MIRACLE worker.....Thank you Dr. Kim
