Dr Alice Kim extended my life and it´s quality by finding my PSA level and having me checked out downtown.

May 2017
I have recommend Dr. Kim to others. I am very pleased to have found her as my doctor. She appears to really care about her patients - does not rush through the exam or discussion and I appreciate her very much. She is the best Primary care provider (and third) that I have seen at the Virginia Mason clinic.

May 2017
dr Kim remains by far the best primary care doctor I´ve ever encountered. I trust her completely and would be keenly disappointed if she relocated or left VM. It´s true we occasionally miscommunicate, she often seems to think I´m requesting additional care for minor symptoms when I try to provide clear answers to her questions. think dealing with that giant fibroid for years proves I´m no hypochondriac, I just don´t have the language to express myself, I don´t pay attention to medical stuff the way many people do. but I love the way she listens, and hones in on root issues; that she is firm about what´s important for me to do, that she respects my wish to limit medications. I could go on and on.

May 2017
I already have recommended Dr. Kim to others.

May 2017
Alice is very thorough. She always spends time with me and answers all questions. She is knowledgeable and wants to be sure she has covered all details and possibilities.

March 2017
provide complete information and advise to her patient

March 2017
Dr. Alice Kim is the Best!

March 2017
I was amazed at the effort Dr. Kim took to try to figure out what might have caused my strange symptoms. She asked a lot of questions, listened to my answers and explored all possible solutions. I recommended Dr. Kim to my daughter right away. I am delighted that I no longer have to see male doctors for female issues.

March 2017
Alice was courteous and concerned about my back pain, she got me diagnosed and prescribed a regimine to recover and what to do if not. she was right on, rest ice Herat muscle relaxant Tylenol ES. pulled muscle and I was glad to hear she did not there I it was more serious disc issue requiring MRI

March 2017
really good doctor

March 2017
good experience

March 2017
She wrote down everything about the visit for me and contacted me quickly via email with test results

March 2017
Dr. Kim was top notch. She quickly looked everything over, had a great conversation with me asking what I was experiencing and what she was noticing. Put all of it together and offered recommendations that made me feel like I was part of the solution. Really good doctor, amazing bedside manner and would strongly recommend her to others. Her easy going style really was comforting.

March 2017
Dr. Kim is excellent. Really glad I chose her as my Doctor.

February 2017
I´m very satisfied with how thorough she was with my care

February 2017
I changed to Dr. Kim because my previous physician didn´t seem to be understanding and helping with my problems. Dr. Kim is a wonderful physician, taking her time with me, going over all my concerns, my medical issues and what steps will be taken to ensure I will be taken care of and doing her best to give me the proper treatment for my medical issues. She has never rushed me through and her follow up is to be commended. I´ve had two great physicians there, the other is Dr. Sandra DiAngi but I moved too far away to continue with her and consider myself lucky to find another one in Dr. Kim.

February 2017
Friendly knowledgeable personable.

January 2017
Provider is a fine human being, and this forms the foundation upon which she practices. Besides being personable, she´s well educated and highly qualified. She engenders confidence.

Dr. Kim explains everything to you, the lab work, medicine your taking. When you leave you understand everything.

November 2016
Dr.Kim was fantastic! It was my first visit with her and I´m very impressed. She even called me at home a few days after my visit to check up on me.

November 2016
I was a patient of Dr. Kim while she was working at the Federal Way office two years ago. Unfortunately, she left for personal reasons. Since then, I haven´t been able to find a provider that I felt comfortable with. I was very relieved and happy to see that she was back practicing. I live in Federal Way and making the commute to Issaquah is a bit out of the way, however very rewarding knowing that she´s caring for me once again. Dr. Alice Kim is very compassionate and reliable and also extremely diligent when it comes to my well-being. I would highly recommend her!

November 2016
I don´t know how to describe that I felt that she felt confident about her care, yet still listened to my concerns.

September 2016
Dr. Kim called the next day to see how I was progressing. Excellent follow through.

September 2016
Dr Kim is one of the best Internal Dr.s around, and unfortunately I have seen quite a few with my health.She always has time to discuss whatever questions I have. If the question is out of her expertise, she will either look up the info to email to me or provide another physician in a specialized position that I can go see. She always makes you feel at ease even though not all info is pleasant to talk about. Virginia Mason is very lucky to have Dr Kim of their team and a few other physicians could take some lessons from her in how to treat patients with respect. Thank you for listening to my opinion, I hope the comments are passed on to her supervisor and to Dr Kim herself.

August 2016
I have already recommended Dr. Kim to several friends and co-workers.

August 2016
Dr. Kim is an excellent doctor! She really took the time to listen to me as we went discussed my symptoms and she was very thorough in her explanations of what my problem could be.

Dr. Kim is an excellent, caring, and very knowledgeable doctor.

June 2016
She was very kind but it seemed like she was in a hurry to leave and did not spend anytime with me. I had to ask her basic questions to get some more information about my illness and treatment, otherwise I would not have gotten any information. Even then, the answers were brief and not always helpful.

May 2016
Transferring my grown daughter from peds to Dr. Kim. That is an endorsement.
