This was my first time meeting with this doctor, as she was helping out with walk-in patients. She was very friendly and treated me as her own primary patient. I may even switch to her as my doctor! She took the time to understand my needs and my background.

The problem I have with this doctor is she wants me to take statins and I've told her for several years that I do not want to take them. She then puts on a big pouty show saying I'll surely have a heart attack if I refuse them. I've asked for natural ways to get the same result (lower LDL) and she has no answer. [...]

The only problem is that I was not asked why I'm not taking my statin drugs, although in the past I have declined, but they were ultimately prescribed over my objections. I am interested in natural fixes, but that is never discussed with me.

I do not wish to return to Dr. Kim again. I feel like she did not listen like she use too. I feel like she betrayed my trust and stated "I can't spend time with you" when a simple question was asked. She was overly anxious on getting to the next patient and not listening to help the current patient.
