About Dr. Kim

Philosophy of care

I believe that educating my patients about their medical diagnoses and conditions is an essential component of helping them heal. My goal is to provide you with excellent evidence-based compassionate care and treat you as if you are part of my own family.

Why I entered medicine

Deciding to pursue a medical career was a journey of discovery as I initially tried to stay away from the field. I was a school teacher for 3 years before I embarked into medicine. Ultimately, I learned that medicine combined the intriguing world of scientific discovery and joy of teaching. It has allowed me to be a lifetime learner!

Community involvement

I am actively involved in the Society of Gynecologic Oncology and want to continue raising awareness of gynecologic cancers both locally, regionally and nationally. I have been involved in raising money for the Women's Cancer Foundation and the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition by participating in their annual walks. I also support my local church and community.

Personal interests

I enjoy cooking, traveling, scuba diving, snowboarding and most of all, spending time with my family.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
