"12 years ago Shane Kim did laser surgery on my eyes. I was nearly legally blind. He corrected my vision to 20/20. I felt like he was a miracle worker. Later that evening he called to check on me. No Dr has EVER done that for me. Several years later when my correction began to retract I was back to wearing contacts although not nearly the correction I needed in the past and Dr. Kim worked with me to find the best fit for my vision. I have continued to see Dr. Kim all these years and he is always consistent, kind, cares and remembers things I told him a year ago. My husband just went to see him for the first time and was very happy."
"Just had my first cataract surgery. The appointment started right on time. All the staff from the front desk to the nurses were extremely friendly and professional. All questions answered. All in all it was a very positive experience. If I need my other eye done I will definitely go here and ask for Dr Kim."
