Dr. Kim was born and raised in Korea and came to the United States in 1953 as an exchange student. He has turned his experiences as a young man during the Korean War into a lifetime of service eliminating pain and suffering for others.
He ran a successful private practice in medicine and rheumatology in Pasadena for 30 years. After his retirement, he joined the Congress Orthopaedic Associates as a resident internist and rheumatologist because of his long association with the group’s founders. Dr. Kim performs pre-operative evaluations and participates in post-op care.
Dr. Kim was chair of the Huntington Hospital Pharmacy, Therapeutics and Dietary Committee for many years. He served as Chief of Medicine for two years. For decades, he was a valued attending physician for the teaching program of the hospital’s Internal Medicine Residency Program. Quite a few of his former students have become pillars of the Pasadena medical community.
He also served as an attending rheumatologist at the USC-LAC General Hospital and attained the ranking of Clinical Associate Professor at USC. His life-long scholarship led to his being elected as Fellow of the American College of Physicians.
