Dr. Kim has completed his fellowship in pain medicine in the ACGME-Accredited Interventional Pain Management Fellowship Program at NYU Langone Health. The program at NYU, with Johns Hopkins, is an award-winning recipient of The American Academy of Pain Medicine’s Pain Medicine Fellowship Excellence Award.
Dr. Kim always had a strong desire to create an opportunity for like-minded physicians to network and learn from each other. The passion for making things better for future physicians and patients eventually led to the birth of BestDocz and now, its appearance in the medical community.
Dr. Kim entered the field of healing in 2003 as a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) student. In 2006, he obtained New York State licensed as a Physical Therapist Assistant. He has worked at over 25 different facilities as a licensed PTA treating patients with musculoskeletal injuries, neurological disorders such as strokes, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and cardiopulmonary rehab – for 5 years prior to entering medical school.
Dr. Kim recalls many of his patients suffering from chronic pain. Dr. Kim then decided to be the leader of the interdisciplinary team comprised of physical therapy, occupational therapy, social worker, case management, and nursing staff to further enhance the level of his understanding of the complexity of pain.
Having been trained in a Rehabilitation Medicine Residency and Anesthesia Pain Fellowship at NYU, he entered the field of pain medicine with a pure desire to become a superb diagnostician for his future patients. During his residency training at the Rusk Rehab, he completed a 300-hour course to obtain certification in acupuncture. He founded ALL OF PAIN in hopes of providing treatment options for patients suffering from all kinds of pain.
During his leisure time, Dr. Kim likes to travel to attend medical conferences.
