Dr Kim was my doc! Had Robotic sugery December 2007 - EXCELLENT results, no ED issues, no incontinence. I really liked the staff at RWJ and of course him too. As I recall, I was his 397th procedure, so he has a lot of experience. At the time he was the only certified doc at RWJ, so he has a full schedule. I am only one data point.
