Do NOT go to this vet. I will never ever recommend any sane person to ever pay a visit here unless they want to hurt their own pet. I never bother to review anything online, but this needed to be said here to warn other pet owners who love their pets.

The vet is not only rude, but just simply terrible at his job. He's left my tiny 5 pound dog full of staples to sew up the incision of the stomach muscles inside after an operation to spay my dog. He doesn't even know how to stitch up incisions properly with needles and threads.. I am not making this up. My dog still has staples in her stomach holding her stomach muscles together because of this incompetent lunatic.

Now my poor dog is yelping everytime I try to pick up the dog when she is excited while flexing of her stomach muscles because of these staples that are still inside. These were not the stitches for the skin, but for the inner stomach muscle, so it cannot be removed without another surgical and additional trauma to the dog. Leave me in a tough place where I don't wish to put my baby through another surgery. But she still feels chronic pain when she is flexing her muscles due to excitement and isn't handled very carefully like when I come back from work. Absolutely horrific job for a simple spaying surgery.

How this guy is still operating is just unbelievable... He's is not qualified at his job and I'm almost positive during my previous visit to get vaccines, he was drunk at work and snapped at me for asking questions. I certainly smelled alcohol on his breath. This vet needs to lose his license to practice.

DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT EVER EVER GO TO THIS VET UNLESS YOU WANT TO HURT YOUR PET ON PURPOSE.

I have taken my pets to Dr. Kim for over 10 yrs. He provides excellent care to all my animals. I moved but now drive 20 miles so they can remain under his care.

Dr. Kim and his staff took excellent care of my 20 year old cat. I was greeted with warm and friendly service and I would not trust anyone else with my cats.

Dr. Kim is the most compassionate DVM that I have taken my dogs to. Another clinic tried to put my dog down with the thought he had Parvo. Dr. Kim proved them wrong, and didnt even charge me for the visit. He talks to my dogs, and loves them as much as I do. My dogs even love to see him, even during a digital rectal exam (men, we know how uncomfortable that can be). He has even worked with the homeless that have brought their pets in (without charge). For the critics, I challenge them to work with patients that cannot explain their discomfort... Dr. Kim has an intuitive connection with the babies he cares for.

I've been going to Dr. Kim for 12 years. I've had both cats and dogs in that time. On every visit over the years I have found the staff to be professional and pleasant. Both of my cats lived to be 17 years old with no complications, when it came time to put them to sleep Dr. Kim was extremely supportive, even going so far as to remind me that all animals go to heaven, and even though I am not religious it did help me to feel better.

I agree with some of the comments here. Dr. Kim (although reasonable) does not seem to care about the animals he treats. I have been taking my cats to him for 4 years. My sister started bringing her cats to him and decided that his "bedside manner" was in short supply. He can be very short and almost rude in his dealings. He also wants to milk the client for tests and medication that has not been firmly diagnosed. If your looking for standard care,he is OK. However, if "compassion" in your vet is a deal maker,then you would be smart to look elsewhere.

Pros: Decent prices,separate entrances for cats and dogs

Cons: Not a pet friendly atmosphere

Not only is the Dr. terrible and has no idea what he's doing, the front desk receptionist seems to be a tad slow, disinterested, and unprofessional. I took my cat for regular shots and to get de-wormed. I described the worms I saw to him and he just gave random shots without even doing a fecal exam. Needless to say, the worms are still there so I guess out of all that randomness, he still didn't hit the target.

We've been taking our pets to Beverly Virgil since 1997. Dr. Kim is thorough in his medical care and has always treated our pets (and us) with the utmost compassion, kindness, and respect. He recently performed surgery on our older dog's gums, extracting 12 teeth as well. He made sure we were well-equipped with antibiotics, pain meds, and an oral rinse for her recovery at home, and he of course had her back in for a check-up the following week as well. (She smells so much better!!) Prices at Beverly Virgil are quite reasonable, and it is comforting to know that our animals are always welcome there.

As being the owner of four dogs, a vet is very important person to me and to my beloved four-legged kids. Dr. Seung Kim of Beverly Virgil Animal Hospital has taken care of all of my dogs since I've adopted the first one, Jerome, 12 years ago and has never turned me down. He is a highly competent and compassionate vet whom I always recommend to my friends. I remember one cold night when my Yorkie passed away from heart attack during cataract surgery three years ago. He waited for me and my sister until we took her back from the hospital to his clinic late at night. And we saw his tears sharing our loss and mourning, whch we still appreciate a lot. Dr. Kim, you are a great vet!!

Dr. Kim helped me picked out my very first puppy and took care of him until his passing. I am very satisfied with the care my dog received. I especially appreciate Dr. Kim??s compassion at the time when I had to put my dog to sleep (at the age of 15). I am now with my second dog which is also under Dr. Kim's care. I am confident that my dog will continue to receive the good care that he deserves.

We have four cats, all of whom have been treated at this clinic in the last few years. In that time, we've found Dr. Kim to be professional and pleasant, and, more importantly, he cured our cats' illnesses. He also is very reasonably priced. We recommend Dr. Kim very highly. I understand from a couple of other postings here that there are other opinions. I can't speak for others, of course, and I understand the disappointment one feels when a pet doesn't respond to treatment in the way one would wish, but veterinarians are not miracle workers, many things are outside their control, and we are all only human. In our opinion, Dr. Kim is very conscientious and competent, and our pets' treatment has been very good.

I am very sad with the performance of Dr. Kim and I am no longer going to take my dogs there. I first took my dogs there a year ago to have their annual shots and a teeth cleaning. I should've known he was a quack then because one of my dogs permanently lost hair in the injection site and had trouble breathing from the anesthetic tube. I just went there a year after that for their annual shots. When I mentioned the fur loss the doctor chalked it up to being a breed problem. He then noticed that my dogs needed a teeth cleaning and said some teeth may need to be extracted. He then said he would have to take blood tests to be sure. Blood tests for a tooth decay problem? What? He then also wanted to run ring-worm tests on them even though they hardly set foot outside and are in great health. I think he just wants to pad his bill with useless tests. I should've never gone back after the first time. AVOID THIS DOCTOR!

All my three dogs were Dr.Kim's patient since 1990.
When one of my baby had vomiting problem no other vet could find
out what was wrong with him in New York city when we were there
briefly returned to L.A , Dr. Kim recognized his problem instantly. I recommended Dr.Kim to all my neighbors who think of their dogs as their own child and they thanked so much.
Dr.Kim is well experienced and knowledgeable charges
very reasonable price.

I recommend this vet because he is understanding, patient, and answers all your pet related questions. He has to be brusque because he has lots of patients. He handles animals well and he knows exactly what he's doing. The price is decent and the service is top-notch. He's been in this business for a long time and I respect him for the service that he gives the animals.

I brought my cat to this clinic back in 1993 when she was only 10 months old and pregnant. This cat is now 14 years and now has to have a NON functioning and INFECTED kidney removed because the Dr at Beverly Virgil Animal Hospital erroneously clampled off one of her ureters during the spay surgery. This has put my cat at tremendous risk. I DO NOT recommend this veterinary pratice to anyone who loves their animal.

PROS: NONE
CONS: Bad bedside manner and poor medical care.

The vets recently misdiagnosed and almost killed my dog. They told us to come and pick up his file and get him to a hospital. Now they are harassing us to bring his file back. We found other people's pet's blood work in our pets'file. Thank God our dog was saved. Space does not allow for me to tell
how bad these vets are. Hopefully this will save some lives.

PROS: There are none in the long run.
CONS: It may cost your pet's life.

The doctor reminded me of many physicians I have dealt with. He is professional and somewhat personable. He is not rude, just very matter of fact. He seems to be in a rush to get onto the next patient. You don't get the idea that he really loves dogs. If I was dealing with a potential tragedy with my pet, I am not sure that he is the vet I would use.
I want to patronize professionals in my area, but I am tempted to take a drive to the nicer part of town to see how the vets' social skills are over there.
However, for standard procedures, you can't beat the price! And I have never waited long to be seen.

PROS: Price, convenience
CONS: Doctor's briskness

I came here because my puppy's mother's owner was a regular. The prices are decent but the vet has no idea how to handle animals. Also, after every visit, my maltese would have a negative reaction to the shots (i.e. throw up, shakes). I am looking for a new vet because I cannot trust this clinic to neuter my baby.

PROS: price
CONS: difficult parking, bad handling
