Dr Kim is just AMAZING! She was very thorough, discussed options, FOLLOWED UP (not an experience I have had before in other physicians namely Dr Tipton). Just really impressed with her level of care and empathy. I have recommended her to all of my relatives. she is Stellar!
Felt the appointment was a bit rushed and the care provider didnt really evaluate or diagnose thoroughly.
Dr. Kim is very friendly and makes me comfortable. She is very thorough on every issue and explains to me so that I could understand easily.
Dr Alice Kim extended my life and it´s quality by finding my PSA level and having me checked out downtown.
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.
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.
I already have recommended Dr. Kim to others.
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.
provide complete information and advise to her patient
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.
Dr. Alice Kim is the Best!
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
really good doctor
She wrote down everything about the visit for me and contacted me quickly via email with test results
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.
Dr. Kim is excellent. Really glad I chose her as my Doctor.
I´m very satisfied with how thorough she was with my care
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.
Friendly knowledgeable personable.
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.
So very impressed with Dr. Alice Kim. Down to earth, caring, intelligent (obviously - a dr. - but it shows), professional, thorough, sense of humor...I could go on and on! Just very pleased tat I am seeing her.
Alice is an excellent provider, she does a great job of describing what the condition is and how to treat it. I have a lot of trust in her.
Dr. Kim explains everything to you, the lab work, medicine your taking. When you leave you understand everything.
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.
I don´t know how to describe that I felt that she felt confident about her care, yet still listened to my concerns.
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!
Very good!!! Dr. Kim is a true professional. She is thorough and informative. She inspires confidence.
Dr. Kim have been care about my health and explain the concern I raised.
Dr. Kim called the next day to see how I was progressing. Excellent follow through.
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.
I have already recommended Dr. Kim to several friends and co-workers.
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. She ordered tests immediately and found the problem and followed up with me to make sure I was on track for next steps. You can tell she really cares about her patients!
She is excellent .
Dr. Kim is an excellent Doctor. She is patient, but persists in making sure I receive the proper care.
dr. Kim is great
1st time seeing this doctor. She had familiarized herself with my medical history before the visit, which I really appreciated.
Alice Kim is the best doctor my family has ever had.
Dr. Kim is a wonderful doctor. She listens, is compassionate and very thorough. She is the best!!
Dr. Kim is an excellent, caring, and very knowledgeable doctor.
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.
Transferring my grown daughter from peds to Dr. Kim. That is an endorsement.
I am very happy with Dr. Alice Kim
She tends to rush a bit. But this last appt. she seemed relaxed and pleasant. I was surprised. Then I came home to this survey and had to wonder.
Caring and professional, Dr. Kim definitely made me feel that she was present and happy to help me.
Dr. Alice Kim was great. This was my first appointment with V/M as my primary and the visit with Dr. Kim made me glad I made the switch.
I am so grateful to have such a thorough, caring doctor.
She will now be my care provider for check-ups
Dr. Kim has nice demeanor.
Dr. Kim was new to me. My regular dr. was not immediately available. I am/was very pleased with Dr. Kim.
I felt very fortunate that I was able to see Dr.. Kim on short notice. I felt very well taken care of. All issues were explained very well & follow up was fast!
I find Dr. Kim to be an exceptional doctor.
