Dr. Roy Kim

STAY FAR AWAY!

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 never come back again.

    I came to see him and felt like he did not care. He tried to rush me out of his office. Then I later realized that his girlfriend/wife was waiting for him probably to go out for lunch. I would never come back again.

  3. DO NOT COME TO THIS OFFICE

    Absolutely HATE my results. My recent breast augmentation turned out to be a waste of 8g. Sloppy scars, noticeably uneven shape and placement, hardening of one implant, palpable implant edges around my breasts (although I went under the muscle, silicone gel).. everything is just UGH! And although I had my incisions at the breast fold like Caroline (office manager) & Dr. Kim recommended, it’s not even in the fold. It’s higher than the fold so you can actually see the scar.

    I assumed the breast fold would be the easiest incision – I can’t believe he would mess up! On top of that, my implants are so wide for my rib cage so I have plenty of unwanted side boob. My bf also describes it as “big longitudinally” – meaning its so wide for my body that it looks LONG.

    However, I barely have any cleavage wtf! When I lie down, both implants just droop towards opposite sides so that I can place my entire palm in the middle of my chest and feel my chest bone.

  4. Scammer

    REALLY? A sudden boost of stars all in one day? ( notice all the 5 stars are written on the same date) * raise eyebrow*. I REALLY didn’t want to do this bad review, but figured people shouldn’t be blinded or mislead either.

    Had my breast augmentation last year in Nov ( saline) . Consultation, staff were nice. ( duh, they are selling thousand dollar treatments). The 2nd consultation AND on the day of the SURGERY, Dr. Kim kept forgetting I was getting saline. He kept mentioning “silicone”.

    I had to correct him . I was having allergic reaction to my med ( vomiting ) and left him a voicemail. He called back and asked me what of pain I was in. SERIOUSLY? KIM doesnt listen too well.
    After 2 months, I had some weird feeling in my breast. Told KIM. He listened and said ” I DONT KNOW WHAT THAT IS. AND THERE’S NOTHING I COULD DO”. ( weird feeling still going on today)

    Then the ” office manager” comes in and bombards you to WRITE HIM A REVIEW ON YELP! I’m sure writters, they get incentives. Little did she know, not ALL reviews are going to be positive.

  5. HOW DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

    If you’re looking for an unprofessional doctor to just experiment on you then this is your doctor! I’m absolutely dissatisfied at my results after coming in for an augmentation after doing so much research and consultations.

    My breasts are nothing close to the size I wanted and they’re completely not balanced! I came back to let Dr. Kim know and he expects me to pay even more than the initial costs to get them done. HOW DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

  7. there isnt a day that goes by that i dont think my body sucks.

    i got my breast implants from Dr Roy Kim on May 3rd, I wanted a big C small D I am now a DD. 15months after my initial surgery i had to have my left implant repositioned as it was falling down into my arm pit, it still does today.

    I hate my breasts now, i used to be happy and now im so miserable sometimes i feel like ive the ugliest body When i went back to get my left implant redone he wasnt very nice neither were his staff.

    Im back living in Ireland now and cant afford to do anything with them. I hate my self for doing them and i hate my body. there isnt a day that goes by that i dont think my body sucks.

  8. Dr kim is rude and unprofessional!

    Dr kim is rude and unprofessional! He portray himself as very nice and sincere during consultation until he gets your payment. He will also give you a Special discount which is cheaper than most but obviously there is a reason why.

    In the end, you will get what you paid for. If you are considering him please make sure you do your homework with him & have consultation with others doctors too.

  9. BOTCH Plastic Surgeons do exist! And i found him!

    If you have money to spend on another doctor to fix Dr. Kim’s work then I HIGHLY suggest Dr. Kim! BOTCH Plastic Surgeons do exist! And i found him!

    (I wonder how many reviews here were asked by his office to write..
    and i can see why his old staff no longer works there)

  10. His work speaks for itself.

    I am writing this review for my girlfriend. She is 100% unhappy with her results and how unprofessional Dr. Kim was going about it. She has visible uneven scars on both sides of her breast. He told her to use the ointment that he said would help but its complete [email protected]!

    The implants are lopsided. It is not even and Dr. Kim’s started to blame her saying her breast was like that before. Which is completely false. Its very obvious that Dr. Kim does not know what he is doing. Its sad that he does not care enough and just all long as he was paid!

    FYI: just because a doctor goes school to be a Plastic Surgeon and has a certificate to prove it on his wall, it DOES NOT mean that he actually has the talent for it. Believe me you need both to be a Good Plastic Surgeon. His work speaks for itself. Thumbs down!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!
