Charles Kim, MD, FACC

Philosophy of Care:

I believe in the role of physician as educator and patient advocate. I work to earn the trust of patients and help them reach their health care goals. I believe patients needs to be listened to, respected for their opinions and comfortable with their health care decisions. I try my best to deliver kind, respectful cardiovascular care based on evidenced-based and scientific medicine, but tailored and individualized to specific patient preferences and goals.
