Dr. Donald H Kim, MD
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!

Tracy DR Ellis Physician
Currently, I am in the middle of the series of treatments on my right knee (I'm to have 28, and I've had seven so far....three the first visit; four the second. The earlier reviewer described the procedure accurately. I'm scheduled for four more this week. I have experienced a remarkable change in my knee as well as in my ability to walk without any pain much of the time. Dr. Ellis stated on my last visit that such a quick improvement was not usual, but he was pleased I was feeling so much better. While I'm not yet 100%, I would easily be able to live with what I now have, if this is as good as it gets. And if improvement continues to happen, I will be very satisfied. I read all the comments about the legal situation he's had in the past--this was after my first round of treatments--and it did give me pause before I returned. But so far things are going very well. I'll continue with treatment to completion, if I need it. He had indicated that, should I feel the knee was up to the level of comfort I needed before finishing the 28 treatments, I could choose to stop with no penalty and without having to pay for treatments not received. Dr. Ellis now uses a payment program called Care Credit, which is interest-free for up to 18 months. (After that, interest goes up to over 20%, so it's best to pay it off as quickly as possible!)

Wright Michael Dr
I had my spine fused by another surgeon in 2004 due to a very severe scoliosis curve. I currently have hardware from right below my neck, all the way to my waist. 2 years ago Dr. Wright took x-rays & an MRI & discovered that I had a broken Herrington rod. Unfortunately I was the primary breadwinner at that time & didn't have the ability to have anything done about it. I called their office last Monday for an appointment, now that I'm ready & able to have surgery. I was super suprised when they offered me an appointment for this morning! (Saturday appointments are kind of rare with ortho's) We looked over the imaging again & discussed the game plan & I should be having the surgery at the end of August/early September. Needless to say, I'll be posting a review after I have recovered from everything. He may come off as arrogant, or cocky to some, but it's mainly because he is very experienced & knowledgeable & knows what he is doing. He talked to my husband & I for 30-45 min. & we never felt rushed at all. Maybe appointments during the week are different, but we really did have a positive experience!

Samantha Jasper's profile photoSamantha JasperShared publicly • 7:53 PMI have taken my son to several doctors, both at family offices and pediatric offices over the course of the last few years. I have been looking for someone who could figure out what his awful chronic cough is and how to treat it. We finally found answers when Dr. Palm began treating him. But of course, I also wanted a pediatrician who loves kids, who is patient, and who is understanding. Just Kids Pediatrics is full of women who care; doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, and front desk personnel that are not only knowledgeable, but they are themselves mommies who understand what it's like to be on both sides of the fence. I have always been treated with respect, my concerns have always been addressed as legitimate, and most importantly everyone there makes my son feel safe and comfortable.If you are looking for a pediatrician for your child in the OKC metro area I highly recommend Just Kids Pediatrics!Also, they now have an Urgent Care, so your child can be seen by the same doctor they know (and you trust) even if something happens after hours!

Fong, Winston MD
I have been cared for by Dr. Fong for 2 years and found him to be very knowledgeable and understanding. I have chronic neck pain due to a car accident over 13 years ago. I saw Dr. Fong after many years of pain and worsened shoulder pain and numbness in my fingers on the left hand. I had an MRI and Xrays that revealed multiple levels of disc damage and mild compression of the spinal cord at C5,C6. Dr Fong was conservative in his recommendation and I received tx at pain management x2 years with good management of my symptoms with steroid injections. Just recently my symptoms have worsened and an updated MRI was performed with Xrays too. Dr. Fong reviewed the findings and after a through physical exam and long discussion in his office we have decided to proceed with a 3 level fusion in the c-spine using my own bone for the procedure. I feel confident that Dr Fong did not rush into cutting me open and only advised it now because we have exhausted all conservative treatments.

Abbas Toughanipour MD
At 43 I had a stroke, four years later I had a heart attack. I had Marfan Syndrome. Dr. Toughanipour had to perform the Bentall procedure which is a replacement of the aortic valve, aortic root and ascending aorta, with re-implantation of the coronary arteries into the graft. This operation is used to treat combined aortic valve and ascending aorta disease, including lesions associated with Marfan syndrome. On top of that he also had to perform a quadruple CABG (bypass). This was two surgeries in one that took 12 hours. He then sat be me for 3.5 hours because I wouldn't stop bleeding. This was a surgery that my surviving wasn't expected. I was off the ventilator within 24 hours and up walking within 48 hours and returned to work in six weeks. It's been 13 months since my surgery and I owe my life to Dr. Toughanipour. I feel great and have not had any complications. Dr. Toughanipour has to be one of the top cardiac surgeons in the nation!!

Dr. Rex R Matthews, MD
He took care of my daughter, who is now 25 years old, from the time she was 2. She adored him and called him Dr. Pawpaw. My son never warmed up to him quite like that but he did okay. Dr. Matthews had some rude staff back then and probably still does but the doctor himself was exceptional. If you took the time to research whatever problem your child was having, he would listen and respect you for it. That is very hard to find. I can't imagine that being aged out of him but it has been a number of years since we've seen him. My first grandchild was born this last Friday and I will recommend Dr. Matthews, in spite of his age now, as a starting point. I don't know what problems the other reviewer had with "office policies" being ridiculous but you can't judge a doctor based on your inability to follow whatever silly rules are laid out.

Wright Michael Dr
ExceptionalCan't stop smilingI have been a patient under Dr. Wright for several years. I have to say the man is truly GIFTED!!!!Dr. Wright put in an amazingly beautiful bridge. I was preparing for my wedding. As such, I was very nervous about the procedure, and how it would turn out (after all they were going to remove my six top front teeth to put in the bridge). He took the time to explain every procedure and was very supportive, they look so natural and I cannot stop smiling. I get complements regularly from strangers on how beautiful my smile is. Dr. Wright is truly a perfectionist, to my benefit, and won’t stop until he has achieved it. I have benefitted from his extraordinary talents, professionalism and humanity. His staff is outstanding, and supper supportive. I cannot recommend him and his staff more highly. Thank You Dr. Wright 

DR Pope is a great dr always takes adequate time with you and make sure you fully understand what's going on. The office staff is not so friendly however...for instance I called to schedule an appointment the lady on the other end of the line had attitude and seemed like she didn't want to help and ended up choosing a time I had a hard time meeting because the weather was bad and I had to pick up my son from daycare. I ended up missing the appointment even though I tried very hard to get him there. Then I call to make him another appointment and they tell me my son is dismissed from the office...when my son has a chronic medical condition and it is so hard to find a pediatrician you actually trust.If they truly cared about their patients they would not let this happen especially to people who have been seeing them for nearly 2 years..

Wright Michael Dr
Dr.. Wright got my husband out of his wheelchair. The original Neurosurgeon had performed a lumbar fusion which led to a bone infection. The infection deteriorated his entire lumbar region and required a Hickman Port for the antibiotics. The port caused several blood clots to form and that delayed the repairative surgery for 6 months. During that time, his spine collapsed and he was confined to a wheel chair. The original surgeon told us that it was too risky and basically "over his head". He referred us to another Orthopedic surgeon who took one look at the MRI and sent us straight to Dr. Wright. After an 11 1/2 hour surgery, my husband was able to stand up for the first time in over a year. That was 7 years ago. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!!!
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
