“I find it very meaningful to work directly with people throughout the continuum of their experience, from screening to diagnosis to treatment.”

— Dr. Kim

Why do you specialize in breast imaging?

I’ve always liked radiology as a field because it focuses on the diagnostic aspect of medicine. Figuring out what’s going on is crucial for effectively treating any condition, and it’s satisfying to help solve those medical puzzles for patients. Breast imaging is a unique subspeciality within radiology because it presents the opportunity to develop relationships with patients over time. I find it very meaningful to work directly with people throughout the continuum of their experience, from screening to diagnosis to treatment.

How do you like to work with patients?

Making decisions when faced with a breast cancer diagnosis can be fraught. It’s an anxious time, and a time when good communication becomes very important. I focus on being as clear and concise as possible so that you walk out of our appointments feeling like you have the information you need to move forward. Every day, I am humbled by the grace and perseverance of my patients.
