It's certainly an honor to be recognized with this award, but the greatest reward I have ever received is the privilege of helping my patients everyday win the battle against obesity.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. has identified Dr. David Kim as a top weight loss surgeon in the U. S. in the most recent survey. The Top Doctors™ selection process begins by surveying thousands of physicians and healthcare professionals and asks them to identify leading physicians in a number of specialties throughout their region and across the nation. Dr. Kim’s inclusion in America’s Top Doctors® highlights his experience and expertise, as well as his low rate of complications with procedures such as the LAP-BAND System®.
Each year, the physician-led panel carefully reviews the credentials of all physicians nominated for inclusion in the current edition of America’s Top Doctors®. After reviewing a comprehensive biography provided by the doctors themselves, the panel determines the top doctors list based on the input from the surveys and their own professional judgement. America’s Top Doctors® is updated annually, and the doctors chosen by Castle Connolly cannot pay to be listed.
At the Live Life Again Center for Bariatric Surgery, Dr. David Kim has performed over 4,000 weight loss procedures, ranging from gastric banding procedures to the vertical sleeve gastrectomy. Dr. Kim says his selection to Castle Connolly’s list of top doctors is an important and exciting distinction, not only for him, but his dedicated team and loyal patients. “It's certainly an honor to be recognized with this award, but the greatest reward I have ever received is the privilege of helping my patients everyday win the battle against obesity. I know I have done a good job when a patient refers a family member or a friend.”
