What Our Clients Are Saying

“I highly recommend him. I visited him because of my prolonged back/neck pain and unaligned hip bone. He stretches every muscle of mine gently but effectively. I feel so relaxed and less painful after every treatment. As a computer programmer, my neck and back are always stiff, so I can’t help visiting him every week. It is fortunate to have him near me.”

Ben S.

Dr. Kim was very patient with me and helpful in explaining everything that was necessary to recover from my knee surgery. He made visits easy and stress free. After his help and treatment, it feels like I never even had surgery in the first place and I’m able to run around with no issues at all.

Christopher Z.

Dr. Kim is extremely thorough and remembers all of the issues that you have. My pain reduced noticeably after the first session and significantly after a few more sessions. Very little wait time and all of the PT necessities are on hand. Will definitely recommend Dr. Kim to family and friends!

Daniel C.

I had issues with my TMJ since 1997 it didn’t bother me at first but over time the clicking sound every time I chew got louder and louder. Burgers are very hard to eat I had to cut it up in order to manage chewing because I was so afraid for my jaw to lock or dislocate. I’ve had braces and a had a specialist check on my jaw and discussed that it only needs surgery for realignment. I am so glad that I found Derek he was so knowledgeable and it only took 5 sessions to fix the annoying sound that have been plaguing me for almost 20 yrs now that the clicking sound is gone chewing is a breeze. Derek is very generous with intentions to help he gave everything I need to know to maintaining good TMJ.


Dr. Kim was incredibly helpful with diagnosing and developing a therapy plan for my dislocated shoulder. He also helped me with some back issues I was having. Everyone in his office is attentive and polite. Always flexible with scheduling and understanding if you need to change or cancel an appointment.

Gustav P.

In short – I highly, highly recommend this facility.

I was looking for a physical therapist to help me rehabilitate motion in my shoulder after a snowboarding accident. I knew Dr. Derek Kim would be my PT of choice after the first 10 minutes of consultation. He is deeply knowledgeable in how muscles and bones work, and suggests a variety of different methods for rehabilitation – massage, equipment exercises, electrotherapy, various machines, acupuncture etc.

He is attentive and dedicated and most importantly, makes sure you receive personalized attention for the full hour of every session – as you know, some PTs will delegate you to assistants, or have you doing exercises for 30 mins which you can do at home, etc..
