    He was a very nice man and an excellent pediatrician. My sons loved him. When he retired they were upset that they wouldn’t get to “visit” him any more. RIP & God Bless you.

    Rest in Peace, he was a wonderful pediatrician. My girls out grew him before he retired but there was a time when my youngest needed something for college and he was a great help in giving her what she needed. He saw my girls through a lot of scary times. I always felt blessed that we chose him to be our pediatrician. Prayers for the family.

    What a kind and wonderful man he was! I will always remember him at the parties at my home and the shopping bags full of Avon products he would bring. He was so generous and so informed on so many topics that we had many great conversations. God bless your family in this sad time . Forever in our hearts!

    Dear Family:

    Dr. Kim was my pediatrician for my 3 children. He was a wonderful doctor, and kind human being. On one occasion, my son developed a medical emergency in Dr. Kim’s office and he himself put my son in his car and rushed him to the hospital. He made the world a better place. My prayers are with his family and friends. Rest in peace, dear one.

    My heartfelt sympathy to Dr. Kim’s entire family. I was in practice as a radiology consultant to Dr. Kim for twenty-five years.
    He was a devoted and most caring physician to his patients. He exuded warmth in all facets of his practice. His generosity was legendary! He was blessed with a long life and his family can be proud of all his accomplishments.

    Cathy, Steven and Family. So truly sorry for your loss. He was an amazing, loving and truly caring human being as well as the perfect doctor. There will never be another doctor like him and if every doctor was half the man he was to his patients the world would be a better place. May he rest in peace and may God comfort you in this time. Again, my condolences and God Bless.Sincerely, Korie and Debbie Fritzinger
