“I believe that medicine should be delivered in a way that is personal where there is mutual respect between the patient and physician. Clearly, the new advances in medicine should be implemented once proven its effectiveness. However the new technologies should not replace the personal and trusting relationship between patient and physician.”I am passionate about urology for many reasons. One of the more important reasons is that, at many times, I have many options in treating a certain urologic condition. Depending on the patient wishes and the life stage that he or she may be in, I am able to help my patients choose the right treatment, whether that is medical treatment or surgery, and if it is surgery, what type of surgery would be most appropriate for that particular patient.”Dr. Frank Kim attended Brown University in Rhode Island, where he graduated with Magna Cum Laude. He received his medical degree at University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine in Illinois. His urology residency was completed at Cornell Medical Center in New York. He received a Health Professions Scholarship with the United States Air Force where he served as the Assistant Chief of Urology at Malcolm Grow Medical Center on Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. Dr. Kim has published original research in some of the most well-respected urology journals.Dr. Kim and his wife, Anne, and their two daughters moved to Tacoma, WA in 2002. They have enjoyed the great northwest beauty ever since. He enjoys golfing, fishing, and traveling.
