Michael Kim, MD, FACC, FSCAI is committed to providing the highest level of care that is deeply rooted in compassion and partnership, placing the needs and goals of his patients at the center of the patient-provider relationship. He believes that transparency in communication between providers, patients, families, and loved ones is at the foundation of all strong patient-provider relationships.
Dr. Kim earned his Bachelor of Science at Stanford University. He then earned his Doctor of Medicine from The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine/Barnes Jewish Hospital. He then attended University of Colorado-Denver, completing fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease (2008) and Interventional Cardiology (2009).
Dr. Kim is an expert in structural heart disease interventions, encompassing the full array of catheter-based valvular therapies including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (MitraClip). His specialty also includes non-valvular therapies such as PFO/ASD/VSD closure, paravalvular leak and fistula repair, and left atrial appendage closure.
His goal is to provide patients with comprehensive and expert consultative cardiovascular care while emphasizing a strong patient-provider relationship, both in the acute hospital setting and in the setting of clinic-based continuous care. He views every patient encounter as an opportunity to assist patients in achieving their individual cardiovascular healthcare goals.
When not caring for patients, Dr. Kim enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, watching them grow, learn, and develop into well-rounded individuals in their own right. He also enjoys road biking, golfing, skiing, and can regularly be found on the leaderboard while indoor training on his Peloton cycle.
