  • This is insane! Dr. Kim, an esteemed practitioner of acupuncture and Oriental medicine, has a spotless criminal record and is renowned as a person of high professional standards and provider of excellent care. Yet he is facing the first allegation of his career, an allegation of two felony charges by one person, that he denies. This is our plea for your assistance in funding a skilled criminal lawyer to provide him the help he needs. We can’t turn our backs on him and hope you won’t either.

We are afraid he is being cancelled- his life’s legacy, his career, his good reputation, his employment, and his future. We are worried about the lack of Justice-the presumption that he is guilty, without a trial, without legal representation, and without even the chance to enter a “not guilty” plea. The news coverage in some reports has plastered his face on their websites with sensational headlines, asking “other victims” to step forward. In this case, we believe Dr. Kim to be the victim. He unexpectedly lost his position at VUIM, after 20 years of devoted service in positions of high trust. His livelihood, good name, and reputation of exceptional moral character and professional distinction have been severely damaged.

We are a group of students, clients, and fellow academicians, who love and trust Dr. Kim, our friend, mentor, and colleague. Based on years of connections and first-hand knowledge of his excellent treatments, mentorship, and religious faith, we know in our hearts, he would never hurt anyone, and in fact, he told some interns, that he prays for each client in treatment. We implore your help in funding a criminal lawyer to defend him from these charges and help restore his reputation. He is alone and needs help. He is an American citizen, though his English-speaking skills and ability to defend himself are somewhat limited; he doesn’t fully understand the American legal system and is unable to fund a criminal lawyer with the credentials he needs.

We implore you to find it in your heart to care. Our first priority is legal defense. Since he was fired, any additional funds received will be used for Dr. Kim to buy food and pay for his bills.

Thank you so much.

  • Dr. Kim has treated myself and family members many times, he was always a very respectful and caring doctor. I hope this misunderstanding will clear his name soon.
