Dr. Minsoo Kim



The decision to become a neurologist stems from a deep appreciation for the intricate workings of the human brain and nervous system. I was fascinated by the way neurologists think and approach diagnoses, utilizing neuroanatomy to pinpoint the root causes of complex conditions through a process known as “localization.” This methodical approach, coupled with the challenge of unraveling the mysteries of the brain, captivated my interest and fueled a passion for neurology.

As a double-board certified Neurologist, Dr. Minsoo Kim is an integral specialist of the interdisciplinary spine team at VSI. As the in-house neurologist, he provides a unique approach to treating spinal and neurological disorders that provides patients with continuity of care all under one roof. Dr. Kim evaluates, diagnoses, and treats conditions that affect the central and peripheral nervous systems. He also performs Electromyography (EMG) diagnostic procedures.

Dr. Kim embraces each patient as a close family member or friend. His approach to building the doctor-patient relationship begins with building trust and establishing open dialogue. Unlike many neurologists, he has the unique ability to simplify complex medical concepts to provide patients with the information they need to make informed decisions. He encourages patients to ask questions and actively participate in their custom treatment plans. 

His dedication to providing top-quality care begins with an accurate diagnosis, followed by the latest neurological solutions to improve the quality of life for his patients. Dr. Kim is thoughtful, disciplined, and particularly attentive to the intricate details of each patient’s care. Patients can expect clear communication, accurate diagnostics, and a genuine, trusting relationship with Dr. Kim. 

With nearly 15 years of education, training, and experience, Dr. Kim pursued additional training in a Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship and served as a sub-investigator in five clinical trials that involved ALS, CMT, FSHD, inflammatory myositis, and dermatomyositis. This track record has him positioned as a leading neurologist in the Washington, DC Metro Area, treating conditions of nerve and muscle diseases. 

Dr. Kim enjoys spending time with family and traveling abroad. He aspires to be a global neurologist, specializing in translational research and clinical trials for neuromuscular diseases, especially in underserved areas. 

Dr. Kim is fluent in English and Korean.
