Mesa View Regional Hospital welcomes Soon O. Kim, MD, to the medical community in Mesquite! Dr. Kim is a general surgeon and is certified by the American Board of Surgery.

She and her husband recently purchased a home in Mesquite and have relocated from New Mexico where she served as a surgeon for many years. “Moving to Nevada is like coming home for both of us and we are excited about making Mesquite our home forever,” commented Dr. Kim.

Dr. Kim earned her medical degree from the University Of Illinois College Of Medicine and completed her surgical residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.

“With a strong work ethic, proficiency and compassion for her patients, Dr. Kim is a great addition to the caring team at Mesa View. We are so pleased to have her here so that more patients will be able to remain closer to home for their surgical needs,” Stated Ned Hill, CEO for Mesa View Regional Hospital.

In her 27 years as a surgeon, Dr. Kim has had experience with a range of surgical procedures including: colonoscopy, gastrointestinal, gallbladder, appendectomy, hernia repair and endoscopic surgery. She prefers the          laparoscopic method of surgery when appropriate, as this approach is less invasive and more likely to have a cosmetically positive result.

She has practiced in many different parts of the world including: Texas, Illinois, New Hampshire, Abu-Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates where she served as Specialist Surgeon and Nevada where she spent eight years as Chief of Surgery at Humboldt General Hospital in Winnemucca.

Dr. Kim believes in treating her patients with respect, honesty and dignity. “My practice philosophy is to under promise and over deliver and I believe in keeping myself physically fit by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, as a role model for the people I serve and for the community,” Kim stated.
