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.

Dr. Kim is very thorough and I feel very comfortable with him.
Fro my eye sections, most of the procedure is preparation, done by subordinates. Most of my answers apply to them. Their personalities vary, an all do their job. Dr. Kim is pleasant. He jabs quickly, minimizing the pain. Often, I don't actually see him; occasionally I'll get a chance to talk briefly with him.
The care I received from Dr. Kim was better than the care I received from any other provider I have used in the past.
My situation was kind of an emergency. I got in within a couple hours of making my first call, and spent a good part of the afternoon working through sign in, diagnosis, and treatment, all before I went home.
Dr Kim and all of the staff are excellent
We greatly appreciated the care, patience and tenderness my 88 yr old father received during our first visit with Dr Kim and his staff. All were well practiced and efficient in handling our situation. Dr Kim was clearly knowledgable in helping us navigate through the new diagnosis of AMD (new to us).
Everything was on time. I like that.
Everyone was great and Dr. Kim always does an amazing job explaining everything thoroughly.
Excellent physician, excellent staff altogether.

Everyone was kind and know their job
Terrific staff, Dr Kim Is the best In the biz, very attentive and helpful. Five stars and a smiley face!
Dr Joon Bom Kim is an amazing professional, who has exceeded my personal expectations and found effective treatment for what has become a lifelong medical condition. This last visit with Dr. Kim was an astoundingly informative event and sadly I may have a new diagnosis but Dr. Kim explained this with his empathic professional manner. I am a registered nurse and work with doctors and other professionals on a daily basis, and I find Dr Kim to be among the best doctors in the Milwaukee area, and am eternally grateful for the degree at which we have broken down the details of a condition, and offered intelligent, Treatment regimens and options.
Very professional. Thoroughly explained each decision or recommendation. Timely without feeling rushed. An enjoyable experience.

I love voice to Eye Institute. I'm in and out.. No waiting and amazing Dr. Kim (maleKim). Dr. Kim is brilliant! I've been getting injections 17 years at a different place that I loved, but that Dr. Retired. . I had to find a new place and chose Dr. Kim. I couldn't be happier.
