"Dr Kim is a brilliant and amazing surgeon. He has given me my life back! In meeting with him for the first time I found him to be a kind and thorough spine specialist. He spends a lot of time with you, discusses your xrays, listens and notates carefully, and is diligent in his follow through and treatment plans.
I had a very long and complicated revision fusion surgery which, if not handled by such a brilliant and extremely skilled surgeon, would definitely have gone very wrong. I'm now 4 months post surgery, continuing physical therapy and walking with ease without the constant pain I had lived with for a decade. I'm getting back to my normal active life of which I never thought I'd ever have again. God bless you, Dr Kim. I can't thank you enough!"
"On July 28th 2017 7.30am I Had a c5-6& a c6-7 anterior cervical Disectomy done by Dr kim" this was done at cedar Sinai hospital. Words alone could never express the gratitude I feel towards my surgeon/dr kim. I live In Victorville ca 94 miles from the office / hospital one way but let me tell all that reads these reviews it was so worth it !! Believe Me knowing how good I was treated by all I came in contact with at Dr Kim's office there so awsome" and the way my wife and I were treated by Dr kim. Thank God I made the Right call when it came to picking a dr/surgeon. The hospital was another great choice. Everyone there made my stay as perfect as it could of been. Thank you to so many people. @ DR kims office I want to personally thank MIRIA for everything she did for me to make it all go well with my insurance co. So in closing yesterday Aug 10th was my follow up on my surgery and I couldn't be any better Dr kim was happy and so was I & my wife. It's going to take some time but I know if I wasn't blessed in finding Dr kim I would still be in alot of pain. Thank you again Dr & staff. See you in a month."
"If you're looking for someone that knows what they are doing...this is the Dr you need. It took me a while to find someone I can trust and give me options. Dr Sang D Kim and his staff are amazing.
I went to a previous doctor and did not like how they treated my situation. I want to feel comfortable if someone is going to be my spine surgeon...
Update: 9 Week post op and I have my life back! I am pain free and returning to my old life."
"Dr. Kim operated on me last September to remove the L5 disc pressing on my S1, which was causing unbelievable pain. What a professional, considerate and knowledgeable physician! Coming from a family of physicians, I have very high standards and he met them all."
"I saw Dr. Kim for bilateral spondylolysis with spondylolisthesis and severe foraminal stenosis of the L3-L5 vertebra. He performed a L3 - L5 fusion on me in November of 2015. He is great at communication and explained everything clearly and completely so I knew what to expect. Post op I am doing great and am back to my normal activity. All my back pain is gone and all my leg nerve pain has been completely eliminated. He is a fantastic surgeon! Thank you Dr. Kim and his team for taking such good care of me!! It is really appreciated."
"Dr. Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with. I required one cervical ADR at C6-7. However, I never had surgery before (except wisdom teeth removal 20+ years ago) and was more than a little nervous about the procedure. At no time did I feel pressured. He showed me exactly what happened to me and walked me through the entire process during our consultations while his staff quickly handled the hospitality and insurance details. This inspired the confidence to undergo what needed to be done. I had the operation in about a month and was pain-free immediately afterward. It couldn't have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Kim for your surgery ."
"He is professional and very friendly and is always willing to answer any question I have for him. He performed a spinal fusion on me after I had an accident, the surgery was quick and precise. If anyone I know needs surgery I'd look for him. Thank you Dr. Kim!"
"I went to see Dr. Kim (along with two other highly skilled orthopaedic surgeons in Los Angeles). I chose Dr. Kim as he was the most professional, knowledgeable, precise, caring and kind, and made more sense to me than both the other doctors. I had a 3-level cervical discectomy and fusion (by Dr. Kim) and he did an amazing job. He is very responsive to all my questions and made me feel very comfortable with whatever questions I had. My recovery went as well as could be expected and I would gladly refer him to anyone I know who needs spine surgery. Thank you Dr. Kim!"
"What an outstanding doctor! I went to see Dr. Kim for treatment on my bulging disc and sciatica. Dr. Kim and his team were very professional and handled all details with the highest care. Back surgery can be a scary ordeal but Dr Kim was very patient and understanding while explaining all the fine details, concerns and needs to my wife and I. This allowed my mind to be at ease and focus on treatment and recovery knowing that I was in great hands! I am on the road to recovery and feel better every day. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim for all your back/spinal needs! Thanks again Dr Kim!"
