Elizabeth Kim, M.D.

A gifted surgeon, Dr. Kim looks into the eyes of her patients, listens to their words and what is behind them, then applies her skills to begin the healing process.

Admiring some other well-known people, Dr. Kim believes, “The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.” (Albert Schweitzer)…”To love at all is to be vulnerable...God doesn’t require us to succeed, he only requires that we try.” (CS Lewis)..”Seek always to do good, even if it’s a little thing for those that need help, something for which we get no pay but the privilege of doing it, and it is in the little things that our strength lies and can turn what is impossible to possible with God‘s help.” (Mother Teresa )
