Dr. Roy Kim


A few years ago, I went to the smirky Dr. Roy Kim to have a cyst removed from my back.

When he met me at the hospital to perform the surgical procedure, he told me he was late for another appointment.

After rushing me into a hospital gown, he then haphazardly removed my cyst as quickly as possible, sewed me up like I was some random piece of cattle … and left.

This took little more than five minutes.

A dark, raised keloid scar soon formed. When I told Dr. Kim about this, he said it was because there are certain people (me being one of them) that easily form these scars.

This could be PARTIALLY true. However, I feel that his sloppy and frenetic surgical work also contributed to the scarring.

I’ve had a cyst removed before … and it did not leave behind a nasty keloid.

Dr. Kim decided to deflate my raised scar with two cortisone shots, which he ROUGHLY injected me with; couldn’t figure out if he was simply on a power trip or just naturally ungainly.

Soon, my scar deflated into a sunken crater, the size of a quarter.

So – to sum up this review: I went in to get a cyst removed (the most MINOR of surgeries) … and was first left with an ugly keloid, then injected with cortisone, which has now left it appearing like I have a hole in my back.

And guess what! The cyst has returned!

Don’t let his professional-looking office in the Mills Building sway you! STAY FAR AWAY!!

  1. I would definitely come back for different procedures-thank you!

    Had tear through and nose tip fillers done by Dr Kim; very satisfied with the results despite light bruising next day; I would definitely come back for different procedures-thank you!

  2. Everything he did was very subtle and he is so personable!

    I am a 50+ year old woman and have been a patient of Dr. Kim’s for 10 years. I started with botox and fillers. A year ago I did a lower facelift, surgery on my upper and lower eyes, fat transfers to my face and a stomach and lower back liposuction. I have to say, I am surprised that his overall rating is not a lot higher.

    Thus, I am writing a review, even though I rarely post on Yelp. I have never been a beauty “junkie”. I have never had a facial or been to a medi-spa. I went to Dr. Kim based on a recommendation and was leery of both botox and fillers at first.

    Everything he did was very subtle and he is so personable! Much to my great surprise, I decided to do the surgeries above because I felt so comfortable with Dr. Kim. I never thought I would ever do this. He took very good care of me and even made a house call post op!! I have gotten so many compliments on the results. Very, very happy I took the plunge.

  3. Overall I would definitely do it all over again with Dr. Roy Kim.

    If you are looking to get breast augmentation I strongly recommend Dr. Roy Kim. I went in for surgery on a Thursday and was back to work on Monday. The pain pump was definitly worth it because I experienced very little pain and barely used the prescribed pain killer.

    His staff is also incredibly nice and patient and really helped me decide on the right size for me. I am writing this review because I did have a postive experience and although normally I don’t write reviews the reviews on this page helped me select Dr. Roy Kim and I am grateful and want to contribute. Overall I would definitely do it all over again with Dr. Roy Kim.

  4. dr kim and his staff are Not very friendly

    dr kim and his staff are very friendly…. the office is small and cozy, which i actually prefer- if it means the staff is more “humble” (they are!) i went to a few consultations prior to choosing dr kim – none of which were horrible but i felt most comfortable with dr kim and his staff.

    (not to mention, his prices were the lowest- that was a plus!) i loved that he gave an unbiased opinion and left all decisions ultimately up to me. he did an awesome job and i am so happy with my results. caroline was so helpful in explaining (to a T) what to expect before and after the surgery.

    if you’re thinking about getting breast augmentation done, you should schedule a consult with dr kim and caroline. only you will know which dr makes YOU feel comfy- check him out to see if you two are a match! ps: dr kim gives you his personal cell phone # in case you have any questions after the procedurey…

    that put my mind at so much ease after the surgery. **side note: if you wanted to use your care credit account to take advantage of the 0% interest – dr kim’s office will charge you a small % (i think its a fee that is charged to the company–

    there are other offices that will eat the fee but dr kims office extends to the cost to the client) it actually still ends up being cheaper than other prices around the bay area, so if you prefer to make payments – go for it.

    i, on the other hand, didnt want to pay anything extra so i decided to charge the procedure on my cashback card and pay the balance off in full. this however, is the only reason why i gave 2 stars vs 3.

  5. Never Again

    I was contemplating about whether going to a Beverly Hills or stay in San Francisco( comfortof my home) for a breast augmentation. Because I was referred by two of my friends who got theirs done at Dr. kims, I decided to go in for a FREE consultation. Caroline, the office manager was a sweetheart. She was friendly and even showed up on the day of my surgery ( 6:00am) to say hi and comforted me.

    Dr. Kim did great job . Although I’m still in the healing process, for the most part I’d say so far so good. I didn’t need the pain pump and only needed the pain killer for 2 1/2 days, strolling the mall on day 3!

  6. The office staff was just as nice and accommodating.

    Thank you Dr. for 2 great experience’s in your office. I hate the thought of needles on my face but what the heck. I gave Juviderm a try and was very happy with the results.

    He talked to me the whole time while he started the procedure so I was very comfortable while I was there and pleased with the results. I also came back to try the Refinity Peel which was great. My skin looks and feels younger. The office staff was just as nice and accommodating.

  7. I will continue to go back for anything else I need.

    I needed an Obagi blue peel for my back to get rid of scars and discoloration. Prior to this I was given medicine to help me heal before the procedure. I was warned that the peel was to be painful, however,

    Dr. Kim gave me numbing cream and it was nearly painless (keep in mind everyones body is different). The past two times I’ve been there I have always felt comfortable, and I will continue to go back for anything else I need.

  8. I admire Dr. Kim and find his staff quite professional as well. He is a ray of light.

    Dr. Kim is one of the best plastic surgeons in California. He excels in professionalism and is a great humanitarian as well. He is fair and does more than his part to help the less fortunate in the farthest, darkest most dangerous part of the globe.

    Each year he donates his money and vacation time to donate his services, free of charge to poor children with cleft lip and palette. I admire Dr. Kim and find his staff quite professional as well. He is a ray of light.
