Care Philosophy

Dr. Kim: "I find building relationships with my patients and the trust that comes along with it, incredibly fulfilling. It is rewarding to be close with my patients; people are shocked when I call them to check up on them. I'm just that kind of doctor.  I try to break the wall between doctor and patient, and I always strive for good communication by showing my patients that I care about them. In my office, it is not uncommon to have someone cry on my shoulder, whether because of family, financial, or health issues. How does this happen? Simple. I take the time to ask every one of my patients, "How are you doing?" … and they open up. For me, it is so rewarding that I can be both their doctor and their friend. I love seeing my patients grow to be healthy and happy, and I'm lucky to be a part of that".

In My Own Words

Dr. S. Don Kim is a board-certified holistic podiatrist who specializes in both natural treatments and related surgeries for heel pain. He has been the medical director of Kim Holistic Foot and Ankle Medical Centers since 1991. Also, a naturopathic physician (ND), Dr. Kim founded the K Wellness Center that specializes in holistic, natural treatments for such chronic conditions as diabetes, hypertension, neuropathy, fatigue, chronic stress, and more. He became the "Walking Doctor" after he overcame a debilitating back injury with his own walking regimen. Once paralyzed and unable to walk for 7 months, he is now sharing his walking-to- wellness expertise through his 9-week "Walking Cure Challenges" program.  For more than two decades, Dr. Kim has been an innovator in the health, nutrition and fitness fields, presenting hundreds of life-changing seminars since 2002. In addition to traditional medicine, he uses herbal medicine too. He seeks treatment methods that encourage the body to participate and heal itself. Now, after his years of research of Holistic medicine and practice, he has started writing books about nutrition, exercise, emotional and spiritual health. He is the author of 9 Secrets of Health, 1 Minute Wellness Messages, 9 Easy Ways to Eliminate Your Nagging Foot Pain, Get Ready to Walk, Heel Pain Epidemic, and the #1 best-selling Walking Cure book.
