I've been a patient of Dr Kim since 2011. When I finally found him and was accepted I was a mess. The Dr I had been to previously had me on methadone and two benzo's. Couldn't even function. Dr Kim was kind as was his staff. I had been in pm for about a year and had become very familiar with the way people in our situation are treated. Like drug seekers without even asking what my diagnosis is. Nurses, pharmacist, Dr all guilty of treating people like junkie herione addicts. Because they don't want to take the time to learn why you are there! Or don't care! Dr Kim cares. He's only had one nurse who was mean and condescending. Being the kind man he is he gave her a chance to come around and be kind. She was there about 3 months. Dr Kim has taught me techniques to alleviate pain so I don't have to be on the extreme dosage I was on when I got there! He has made recommendations that keep me active and in less pain. There aren't words to say how grateful I am to him and his staff. He is responsible and compassionate. And makes certain you are treated with dignity. I have come to expect that and to believe I deserve to be treated with dignity. Oh BTW I am in pain management due to another drs negligence in administering an epidural. Left me with a disease called arachnoidititus. Before my diagnosis was fibromyalgia and I have learned from Dr Kim ways to alleviate this. So without the epidural I could likely have stayed on a moderate dose of Norco. So next time you want to slur a dr and his staff maybe you could ask a variety of people thier experience. Dr Kim is the best Dr I have and the smartest, most compassionate. How many drs have ever told you they would pray for your grandchildren and continue to ask after them! Thank you Dr Kim! And all you sweet nurses and the entire staff!

They were non-empathetic to our needs, kept being rude to us and whispering to one another. We had twins having surgery back to back that just lost their father. The surgery staff were wonderful but don't expect any positive actions from the front office. They act as though they don't like their jobs. Remember that no food and drink allowed in building at all. We brought two dolls for our twins for after surgery and one lady accused us for having pizza boxes. We told her twice that they were dolls and she didn't believe us and so we had to show her up close. Ridiculous! I don't usually write reviews but our family had several unnecessary issues with the front office staff.

I'm not sure if 2 of these people went to the same Dr. Kim I did. I really feel like I owe my life to this man. I was diagnosed with ESRD 4th Stage and immediately taken off every single medication I was taking to control my RA. Within 5 months the arthritis was running rampant in my body and I was in so much pain I didn't know if I could stand it. Dr. Kim taught me how to use the drugs to live NOT live to use the drugs. I'm never without some pain but thanks to this compassionate man it's bearable. And as far as helping you get off, after I had a knee replacement he managed to work me down from 6 pills a day to three. I think thats pretty good.

I go to the McBride on N. Lee and Ive seen a few of the doctors there. All of them have been wonderful except Dr. Margo. While a good surgeon, he has a HORRIBLE bedside manner! Ive heard this from many of his patients. He doesnt seem to care at all about your pain or issues resulting from the pain but generally, just very bad bedside manner in general!The rest of the doctors here are absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend McBride, just dont get Dr. Margo!!

Read the other reviews and don't understand the attitudes of the negative ones.... I'm currently recovering from shoulder surgery performed by Dr Levings and my experience with this business has been beyond outstanding. From my first phone call till today everyone has been professional, caring and friendly. They've never hounded me for money nor have I waited for more than 15 min at any appt. I highly recommend SOS for any orthopedic problem you have! !!!

i disagree with the two post. Dr Kim is a caring doctor that has helped me with my pain problems. he gives you just enough pain medication to last for a month and if you run out of meds he cannot by law refill it till it is due at the end of the month. looks like to me these two are angry because the law won't allow him to fill scripts early.

The doctors give good care here along with the lab and staff. To use this as a primary care provider is difficult because you communication is awful and you can forget getting a prescription refilled without calling several times over more than a week. If you are sick and just need to see anyone, this is better than the emergency room.

This place is amazing! It is very busy, so the wait time can be a little lengthy, but the excellent staff and medical care make up for that. The girls in the front are always so polite and helpful. If you ever have an orthopaedic issue, I highly recommend this place!

Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
