My goal is to provide high quality clinical care to prevent vision loss in patients with uveitis and retinal conditions. During the clinic visit, I enjoy getting to know my patients and their backgrounds so I can offer tailored treatment plans. I use advanced diagnostic and therapeutic modalities and collaborate with my colleagues at the Eye Institute and specialists at the Medical College of Wisconsin to develop optimum treatment plans for patients with complex medical and eye conditions.

All of the staff from desk to Opthamologists are absolutely outstanding. The best in their practices. Froedtert&MCW is lucky to have these professionals as part of their care team and hopefully they are recognized for their outstanding skills, practice and care for patients. Dr. Kym, his colleagues are some of the most genuine, compassionate and trustworthy people I have ever met. My loyalty to them, diagnosis, and their treatment plans are unwavering because of the attention and trust built in the relationship between physician/patient. Absolute the very best in what they do.
Excellent experience from start to finish!
The Dr. Is very pleasant and aimiable.
MD was very patient and discussed treatment options throughly
Ease in making appointment was great. Receptionist was cordial and pleasant to work with in all respects. The nurse assistant was professional in all respects. She prepped me with no problems. I felt confident in her services to me. Dr. JOON-BOM KIM was excellent in helping me sort out my situation. He is outgoing and professional in evaluating what he discovered during my exam. This was my first encounter with the Eye Institute I am confident in services provided a highly impressed.
Very good visit except for a significant time between the doctor's initial consultation and his return. No updates were provided while waiting for approximately an hour, from any staff member.
I appreciate him being upfront and not sugar coating the situation. I also appreciate him calling me when I emailed him a question. May be too abrupt for some folks, but I appreciate his style, even if it's not the best news.
Dr Kim and all the staff are amazing. I always feel listened to and like I am getting their full attention.
Dr Kim is the best eye Doctor I ever have he take very good care of my eyes

Dr Kim continues to address my medical issues with professional and TLC.
Dr. Kim did an excellent job! He was very personable & very through!
I absolutely love Dr. Kim. Have seen other ophthalmologists recently and he is the best! He is very clear and concise with his comments and gives you a clear picture of your condition and prognosis. I would want to follow him wherever he went. He is also friendly and approachable.
