Dr Kim performed my gastric sleeve surgery in January 2012. Since then I've lost 75lbs and kept it off. I'm more active not than I ever was. I'm doing 5K's, a 10K and even training for my first 1/2 marathon later this year. Things, I never imagined doing before!! I can't say enough good things about Dr Kim and the entire staff at Kim Bariatric Institute. From my first visit to my last yearly checkup, they have been outstanding. Dr Kim is a very compassionate person with a passion for changing the lives of his patients. I love that you get to see him personally on your initial consultation. I saw him prior to my surgery and the day after. My other visits are with the PA's in his office (also amazing people) and I know I can see him anytime I want, I just need to call the office and ask to see him on a day when he is not in surgery and is in the office seeing patients. He will be open and honest with you about your health and the best procedure for you. His staff at KBI will work with you and for you to help you through the process, whether you have insurance or are a cash pay, they will help you find a way and ensure your success. Even 2 years later, I can call the office with a question and they are more than willing to listen and help. I love that he has a very active support group to help you post-surgery, I've made some amazing lifelong friends from people I've met along this journey. Thanks Dr Kim and everyone at KBI for helping me change my life!!
