Dr. Kim is a trusted family physician at Victory Medical in South Austin, Texas. He has over 24 years of experience working with patients, and he believes that sustained health and wellness is a cooperative effort between patient and doctor.
An affiliated MDVIP physician since 2020, he strives to stay up to date with the latest studies to ensure each patient always receives cutting-edge care. As a personal doctor, he has the time to really know his patients and their personalities so he can partner with them to create a personalized healthcare plan to help them meet their medical needs. People are able to manage their health effectively if they understand their conditions; consequently, Dr. Kim spends a lot of time making sure his patients comprehend their medical problems by simplifying complex medical jargon.
He has extensive experience as a diagnostician, managing complex internal medicine problems with empathy and compassion.
