BIO Dr. Kim grew up as an "Army brat," with her father stationed in Texas, North Carolina, and South Korea. She's made herself at home in Salem, where she enjoys spending time with her husband and four small kids. She enjoys dancing and good food. She also enjoys getting to know her patients and hearing their unique stories. Part of what attracted her to the field of general surgery was being involved in taking care of people when they felt most vulnerable. She appreciates that privilege very much.
