Dr Kim performed my weight loss surger in Sept 2011. He was wonderful! I lost over 100 lbs and I have managed to keep it off! I think it is due ot the after care! Dr Kim and his staff care about you and they really want you to keep the weight that you lose off! They have monthly support meetings and I have meet some wonderful friends in the group that help keep me on track. I don't think I would have been successful if I would have went to another Dr! Dr Kim is the best DR by far!!!

Good day- I am a revision patient, I had a lap band installed in May 2008, by another doctor, and had complications. I came to Dr. Kim in July 2014. After having my lap band drained, nutrition classes and some other tests, I had my lap band removed December 23, 2014 and had a sleeve done in its place. My surgery took about 1 hour 45 minutes. I am very happy so far. I have lost 19 pound since starting the Protein shakes a week before my surgery. Dr. Kim's staff is awesome and so was the staff at Victory Medical Center in Hurst TX. Dr. Kim and Dr. Holden really know what they are doing, they work as a team. Their sense of urgency to help their patients can be seen and felt on your first visit. As a lap band patient for 6 years I didn't realize how miserable and desperate I was. I thought what I experience was normal since I made the decision to have that surgery. But looking back now, I should not have allowed myself to suffer for so long. So if you are overweight, have high blood pressure, diabetic, and your cholesterol is on the rise and you don’t see how you can get off the wheel. Come see Dr. Kim. He will be on point, so don’t be shocked or upset. You are seeing the best in the business. Just remember you will start your new journey to a new life. Trust me it is worth it.

I contacted the office of Dr Kim and Dr Holden in January 2014. Dr Holden performed my vertical sleeve surgery in July 2014 and since then I have lost not only pounds but many inches and clothing sizes as well. I've also lost my diagnosis as type 2 diabetic and I no longer have high cholesterol. I've gained friends and fun acquaintances...I may have lost pounds but I've gained so much, much more!

From the first visit all the way through the surgery I had a great experience. After surgery I was required to come back to the office after one week to have my staples removed. They removed all but the ones in the "big" incision which were not quite ready. They advised me to come back the next week to have them removed. The next week I went back and they took rest of the staples out....or so I thought. They left ONE staple in me and I had to go back THIRD time to have that one removed. I know this is not Dr.Kim's fault, but I had to drive from Plano to Colleyville 3 times and take off early from work each time. Other than that one hiccup, my surgery was fabulous and I enjoyed everyone at Kim Bariatric and at Texas General Hospital in Grand Prairie. I would recommend them to anyone who is obese and is looking to get their life back!!!

Dr. Kim saved my life not once but twice! I was sleeved May 2014 and was to have the DS with the surgery in May. Due to liver being to big the DS was not performed. My safety was the top priority with Dr.Kim. December 23, 2014 I was able to have my DS. Down 99 lbs since May 2014 I couldn't feel better!!! I feel like I have my life back. Best feeling ever.

It's very hard to describe in words when someone, or a group of people change your life forever. I walked into Dr.Kim's office for the very first time a far different woman than I did the last visit that I made. The least of those differences is pounds and inches lost. Dr.Kim and his staff begin your journey with transparency, a healthy dose of plain truth, and will assist you in every way you haven't even thought of yet. I've experienced care, true concern, and empathy every step of the way. Even my husband, far removed from much of the support I have received as a patient, has been completely Wow'ed by Dr.Kim, and the associates he works with every day. These lovely folks will take an active interest in you. From Tiffani, to Trudy, to the folks who work in financing, they will remember you, ask about you, and come to care for you. My surgery was not covered by insurance. I was a private pay patient. This was affordable, and I received the absolute top level of medical care. I cannot encourage anyone who is struggling with weight enough to go and speak with them. The first visit is free anyway, so you have nothing to lose. Lastly, you cannot imagine the journey this will take you on. If there is a way to get coverage; these folks will figure it out for you. From there, they will help you with everything, every step of the way. I've made friends I will have for life, had support I would have struggled in vain without, and they even manage clothes swaps! Call....! I've never felt so good about ANY review!

I came to see Dr Kim in 04, was diabetic with High Blood Pressure and was miserable I was so heavy. In the 9.5 plus years I have lost almost 100 lbs and take no medicines except vitamins. It was the best decision I have ever made to have the Gastric Bypass Surgery, I feel it saved and gave me my life back. Dr Kim and his staff are the most caring folks you will ever find. They provide many support groups throughout the month and cautiously watch your progress throughout your weight loss process. Dr Kim and Staff-- THANK YOU! Sandy F

Dr Kim performed my gastric sleeve surgery in January 2012. Since then I've lost 75lbs and kept it off. I'm more active not than I ever was. I'm doing 5K's, a 10K and even training for my first 1/2 marathon later this year. Things, I never imagined doing before!! I can't say enough good things about Dr Kim and the entire staff at Kim Bariatric Institute. From my first visit to my last yearly checkup, they have been outstanding. Dr Kim is a very compassionate person with a passion for changing the lives of his patients. He will be open and honest with you about your health and the best procedure for you. His staff at KBI will work with you and for you to help you through the process, whether you have insurance or are a cash pay, they will help you find a way and ensure your success. I love that he has a very active support group to help you post surgery, I've made some amazing life long friends from people I've met along this journey. Thanks Dr Kim and everyone at KBI for helping me change my life!!
