Meet Dr. Marshall Kim, MD, PhD

At the Glaucoma Center of Hawaii, Dr. Marshall T. Kim, MD, Ph.D. remains committed to the philosophy that you should be treated with courtesy and respect.

Nowadays, when you go to many doctor’s offices, you do not spend much time with the doctor. You are treated like a heard of cattle. You spend most of the time at the doctor’s office with their assistants. You only get 1-2 minutes where you are actually seen by the doctor. No doctor, not even a Nobel Prize winning MD, PhD can make an accurate diagnosis and assessment in 1-2 minutes. At the Glaucoma Center of Hawaii, Dr. Kim will personally see every patient and take the proper amount of time for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
