The MediCenter is proud to welcome Dr. Bill Kim, MD to Soldotna, Kenai, Sterling, Seward, Barrow, Nikiski, Kasilof, and to other various contracted locations.

The MediCenter Medical Group welcomes Dr. Bill Kim, Gastroenterologist to the Kenai Peninsula.  Dr. Kim is board certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology and is a Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology.

 " The Kenai has always had a need for a Gastroenterologist, one who will raise the quality of healthcare on the Kenai " said Mr. Joseph Hurley, Executive Director of the MediCenter Medical Group. Dr. Kim addresses problems such as abdominal pain, liver problems, colon polyps, cancer, acid reflux (heartburn), peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease (IBD), nutritional problems, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, constipation and many other issues . said Joseph Hurley.  

Alaska is arguably the most beautiful state in our great nation and offers opportunities in nature that are not found elsewhere. Many times, Alaska calls on individuals who can also make a difference in their new communities. Dr. Kim is one of those individuals. He is an avid outdoorsman who has been coming to Alaska to hunt and fish for several years.

Growing up in Iowa, Dr. Kim received his medical degree from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. He completed his residency and Gastroenterology fellowship with the UCLA Health Systems. He has been in practice for more than 20 years in Downey, California.

Dr. Kim believes that all patients deserve to be treated with compassion, respect, and dignity. He focuses on treating the entire patient and not just focusing on the gastrointestinal issues. This comprehensive care philosophy is shared by the founder of the MediCenter, Dr. R. Lynn Carlson, and the other health care providers at the MediCenter facilities

Gastroenterology is a service that per patient population is severely lacking in the Kenai. Choice is a term not commonly used in Alaska as we seem too rural to really offer competition, lower prices, and higher quality. This topic has been something the MediCenter Medical Group has taken on directly. " We are going to offer higher quality care, lower the overall cost of healthcare, and improve the ability to choose quality healthcare providers  " said Joseph Hurley  

Dr. Kim is welcoming new patients and all insurances. He will begin seeing patients with MediCenter Specialties Clinic at 100 Trading Bay Rd STE 8, Kenai, Alaska 99611.  Appointments can be made by calling 907-283-9110.

Patients have options in Alaska and we believe our patients deserve the best locally ” stated Joseph Hurley. " Instead of driving to Anchorage, patients can now been seen by Dr. Kim right here in downtown Kenai!  " stated Joseph Hurley.
