Dr. Tom Kim, a physician specializing in Internal Medicine and Hematology-Oncology, is originally from North Korea. He managed to escape with part of his family during the Korean War at the age of six. His family eventually moved to the United States, and in 1979 Dr Kim came to Knoxville with his goal of “repaying his debt to America for the gift of a new life.”
Dr. Kim was raised in a strong Christian environment, where he was taught to follow the example of Christ and become a “light unto the world.” He believes that all people are challenged to love their neighbor as Jesus commanded. This includes providing our poor neighbors with the healthcare they deserve, and not simply relying on the government to respond to this need.
