About Michael Y. Kim, MD
Dr. Michael Kim is a primary care physician board certified in internal medicine. He joined the Inova VIP 360 team in 2020 after five years as a hospitalist at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital caring for our community's critically ill and hospitalized patients. While at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, he served on the Antimicrobial Stewardship and Hospitalist Advisory Committee. He was awarded the Medical Staff Quarterly Patient Experience Award, along with the Shared Beliefs Award, which both reflect innumerable positive reviews left by patients under his excellent care.
Early in Dr. Kim’s training, he found a deep respect and passion for primary care. During his residency at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, he notably presented case reports to the National American College of Physicians conference and served on the Infectious Disease Committee and Patient Hand off committees. He developed a deep understanding of the importance of the bond between primary care physician and patient. He finds that primary care fosters the crucial connection that allows the patient to take an active role in their own medical care. While working in the hospital setting, he met patients who benefited greatly from this relationship and saw the difficulties endured by some who did not have this relationship. He has seen healthcare outcomes in both instances and believes that having a strong and effective relationship between primary care provider and patient is one of the most important tools on the path to best health outcomes for the patient.
Outside of the workday, Dr. Kim enjoys exploring our local communities, being active and enjoying time with his wife and daughter. They visit local farmers markets, festivals and wineries. He also enjoys running, fitness, golfing and hiking as well as appreciating a relaxing night at home reading or watching movies.
