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.

Dr Kim is excellent. I felt very comfortable around him and will visit him again. My initial impression walking in was that his office is clean, it has space and it is well looked after. He has a calm demeanor, which I appreciate as it helped me relax into a new environment. During my initial consult he walked me through step-by-step what he was looking for, what he discovered and why my symptoms were occurring which I found helpful. I was also very thankful for the work he did to help fix my neck.

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!

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.
The practice is amazing! Derek was the first PT to actually properly diagnose me and send me home program with an app with appropriate exercises that gets updated as you progress. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and I wouldn’t be fully recovered so soon if it wasn’t for him! I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of PT.

My foot & ankle pain began last year since New York City Marathon 2016. The pain got progressively worse. Derek took me through a very thorough assessment and advised me I had wrong landing pattern and didn’t have control over my toe muscles. He devised a comprehensive rehabilitation plan. Derek was excellent at demonstrating the exercises and ensured my movement was correct. I found it was difficult at first to change my old running pattern but Derek kept me motivated and I started to see results quickly. It was a fantastic feeling when he said I could start normal running again. His running analysis was accurate and his tips for running were very impressive. In conclusion I can’t thank Derek enough for not just guiding me through recovery from my injury but also improving my running technique. I would highly recommend him to anybody experiencing a sports injury. You will be in excellent hands!
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..

Dr Derek Kim .. where do I start? He is so amazing and knowledgeable. I had rotator cuff surgery in June 2018 and was diagnosed with frozen shoulder going into my third month post surgery after attending a physical therapy office where ppl didn’t have A Clue what they were doing and pretending that they get cases like mine ” all the time”. Dr.Kim without him knowing proved to me in a short period of time that I can trust him. when I attended his office for a consultation I left out of there more knowledgeable of my condition and I was also given New and challenging exercises that I can do at home. Upon walking out of his office I knew in my heart that this would be my new home for physical therapy and I made the switch instantly! Everyday I am happy that I made this decision. Dr. Kim is a prime example of someone who has skill and has perfected his craft we need more Doctors like him. Anyone who is reading this review I encourage you to give this office a try you will not regret it. THANKS DR.KIM!!

I’m not sure where to start, but Dr. Kim has become such a trusted professional that, in merely 5 sessions, has completely changed my range of motion. I came to Dr. Kim with a herniated disc and an inability to bend over without pain and after my visits, my range of motion has vastly improved and my daily pain has gone from medium to mild. I’m pretty young, and very skeptical of rates by professionals but I really felt that every dollar was worth it and feel extremely indebted to Dr. Kim for his help!! I’m planning on returning for a few more sessions, I especially enjoyed that he himself recommended the 5 sessions to ensure that our working styles are productive toward healing my injury. He was right- it was enough to tell whether the program was working for me. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Kim and am eager to return!

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.

I thought Danny was very compassionate & helpful in resolving my issues.

I have a good experience with him. He is very gentle and careful and very hard working for his patients. I had pain in my neck and shoulder area and he was really helpful.

Let me start off saying, hands down the best chiropractor in NYC. The way he understood my body and how much pressure he should apply was truly magical. DC.Choi didn’t just help my body feel more alive and fresh, it was very therapeutic as well. Would recommended anyone to give him a try!

“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.”
