“Dr. Kim did an amazing job fixing a problem I’ve lived with for over half of my life. I had been going to the chiropractor for over 12 years to relieve the symptoms of a childhood injury, but it got to a point last fall that chiropractic care was no longer effective. I always knew I was going to need a ACDF surgery, but I was concerned about losing mobility in my neck. Mt. Sinai is world-class, so I wasn’t particularly concerned with who my surgeon was going to be, but what sold me on working with Dr. Kim was his bedside manner. He was able to answer all of my questions and seemed to always have a visual to support what he was saying. He also provided his cell number and was available to answer questions before and after the surgery. I felt immediate relief after waking up from the surgery, but now at six weeks my neck feels better than it has in years. My curve was fixed, my nerves are no longer pinched, and I no longer wake up with a stiff neck or back. I regret not taking care of this sooner.”


“Dr. Kim is one of the greatest Spinal Surgeons that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. My father arrived from Puerto Rico looking for medical care for an unknown pain on his shoulder that turned out to be related to his spine. From the moment Dr. Kim took my father’s case, he made certain that we understood everything related to his care. The whole process from the initial visit to his surgery took about one month. Now my father is three months post-op and doing better than ever. Thanks Dr. Kim for your compassion and professional care.”


“I just wanted to say thank you to the staff at Mount Sinai 5th floor surgery team. On January 11, 2021 I got surgery done on my back. I was really nervous and the staff on the 5th floor surgery team was really helpful. The staff truly went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I’m saddened that I don’t remember their names, but I just want to say thank you to all of the staff of the 5th floor surgery team. Also to Dr. Jun Kim who treated me from the beginning. He was really helpful and caring throughout the whole process. Again thank you all.”


“Hello All, I feel the need to write this review on behalf of “THE AMAZING’ Dr. Jun Kim. I had an accident about a year and a half ago had to have surgery on my rotator cuff and bicep, done by Dr. Lisa Galatz from Mt. Sinai. I have been following up with Dr. Cagle and Dr. Bax since the surgery. They have all been WONDERFUL. Since the surgery I’ve had so many other ailments including severe back and neck pains, BAD SWELLING on the left foot, so bad that I lost almost all feeling on my left foot. The pain and swelling became unbearable and NO ONE could give me a diagnosis. Since I have diabetis most doctors were telling me it was diabetic neuropathy. One day my left foot swoll so bad I couldn’t work. I missed three days of work running from one doctor to another crying in pain. While visiting Dr. Bax seeking help Dr. Kim came in reviewed my chart and just said why don’t we take an MRI of your spine. I’m thinking who is this guy? and why my spine its my feet and body that hurt. I asked Dr. Kim why and he said ” I have a hunch” and boy did he hit it right on the nose. Turned out discs had herniated into my upper spine preventing the fluid from flowing. You could CLEARLY see it on the MRI. Dr. Kim moved FAST to get me into surgery. His staff and assistant were AMAZING I didn’t have to do anything but go to my appointments and COVID testing for clearance. Dr. Kim spoke to me before the surgery warned me of possible things that can go wrong and what can go right. Admission was smooth the whole MT. Sinai staff were so professional and helpful. Yes I was scared but Dr. Kim reassured me before AND after the surgery and guys when I tell you the surgery WAS A HUGE SUCCESS. its been 4 weeks and I am back to work ALL OF MY AILMENTS ARE GONE. NO MORE SWELLING NO MORE PAIN THIS IS LIKE A MIRACLE. My diabetis is a little over 100 which is AMAZING. Its been over 200 for years. I FEEL GREAT. Dr. Kim followed up with me with so many phone calls. Even had someone deliver a neck brace TO MY HOME. I’m crying right now I just don’t know how to Thank you Dr. Kim. I hope you read this and know that you are A MIRACLE WORKER. ONE OF GOD’S ANGELS Me and my children, grandchildren, family and friends Thank you for this new gift of life. Its like i have a second chance. My bicep still hurts from the accident but thats another surgery which I WISH DR. KIM Would do.,,. lol but otherwise EVERY ELSE THAT WAS WRONG WITH ME IS GOOD. I FEEL 200% BETTER. THANK YOU AGAIN DOC…. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU HAVE A GREAT LIFE YOU DESERVE IT, and the scar is hardly noticeable………. love it ….. Thank you from Me and my family this is like a second chance at life and I’m going to enjoy it to the fullest… Raquel Torres”
