Dr. Kim is a radiation oncologist who specializes in the treatment of breast cancer and is the University of Washington Department of Radiation Oncology program and disease site lead for breast cancer.
Patient Care Philosophy
“I am a board certified radiation oncologist who specializes in the treatment of breast cancer. At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, I offer several different types of radiation therapy techniques, including accelerated partial breast irradiation and other protocol options. I believe each breast cancer patient is unique and therefore deserves a thorough and individualized discussion of radiation treatments in order to make a definitive decision.”
