  • What people are saying...

    I immediately started seeing results…

    Let me start by saying that I’m a SUPER hard grader.   I work at a law firm and am responsible for hiring lawyers so I have to be super picky.   So, when it comes to hiring someone to take care of me, I’m even tougher.  I’m really busy and stressed out and don’t have time or money to waste on someone or something that isn’t the best.   Dr. Kim is the BEST!

    I started looking for an Acupuncturist a few months ago when I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy (temporary paralyis of half your face brought on by stress).  The doctors at Cedars gave me 1 week of steroids and told me to wait it out.  That’s really not helpful when you can’t go out in public.  I read online that Acupunture might help.  I already believed in Acupunture because I had it during my chemo treatments for Ovarian Cancer.  Unfortuanately, Dr. Ross who was wonderful much passed away a few years ago so I couldn’t go to him.  Dr. Ross was able to help eliminate almost all of the side effects associated with my Chemo therapy.

    I found Dr. Kim by googilng her.  She immediately answered her phone and took the time to listen to me. She got me in for an appointment that same day. I left messages at a  few other places  but they never called back. They were probably too busy doing facials or mani/pedis since a lot of the acupunture places in Southbay seem to do more than Acupuncture which in my opinion is not a good sign.

    I immediately felt comfortable when I met Dr. Kim.  She’s patient, kind and understanding.  Did I mention she’s also really GREAT at what she does?  I immediately started seeing results.  I was able to start blinking my eye and my smile looked less crooked after a few sessions.   Based on what  I read online, I expected to be paralyzed from 3 – 9 months.   Dr. Kim got me back to looking normal in 5 weeks.

    The Bell’s Palsy is almost gone but I still go to Dr. Kim once a week for stress and digestion.  I’m less stressed, less bloated and feel better.

    Go see Dr. Kim but don’t take my 5 pm appointment on Thursdays!

    All the best.
