Dr. Steve Kim has been practicing Primary Care medicine for 32 years. He is Board-Certified in Family Medicine (FABFM) and also has extensive experience with Urgent Care, Telehealth, and office-based Psychotherapy including Marriage and Family Therapy. Dr. Kim has also served with the US Air Force Reserves Medical Squadron, attaining the rank of Major (now retired from USAFR). Dr. Kim believes in a “holistic” approach to healing patients, meaning that a patient’s Mind, Body, and spirit are integrative, and all three phases need to be “Healthy” before a client can be truly well. He also believes that the “patient-physician” relationship should be a Partnership, where both sides work TOGETHER as a Team, to overcome illnesses and chronic disease conditions. He also feels that modern technology can be very useful in improving communication between patients & physicians, but that over-reliance on IT can also be a barrier to ideal communication.
Dr. Kim completed his undergraduate work (B.A.) at Stanford University with a degree in Human Biology. He then received his Medical Doctorate (M.D.) from UC Davis School of Medicine with a Primary Care emphasis. He received a board certification from the American Board of Family Medicine in 1992, which he has maintained through 2029. While working for Cisco Corp Primary Care Clinic he was one of the first 3 physicians in the country to complete telemedical examinations that were reimbursed by insurance.
Dr. Kim’s interests include leading medical mission expeditions to third-world countries, helping coach “underdog” premed students into medical school, and long walks at the beach or in the mountains. Other passions include gourmet dining with his wife, or visiting their three 20-something-aged children who are spread throughout the U.S. He is also a reigning Yahoo Scrabble champion.
