Care Philosophy

As a surgeon, the safety of my patients come as a top priority. I have seen too many other surgeons who carelessly perform procedures and/or care for patients, and patients needlessly suffer. My philosophy is that of patients first, safety, efficacy, and "as if I would treat my mother," and I teach this to all my staffs.Read more

Dr. Kim is very professional as well as personable. I have been an athlete all my life and now had some vein issues as well as verricose veins. I had constant swelling in my ankles not realizing that can be a vein problem. Dr. Kim gave me a treatment plan that I have followed and have already seen great results and haven't had swollen ankles since the 2nd procedure.Amazingly he and his staff have always gone out of there way to make me feel comfortable.

I have been a patient of Bellagio Clinic since 2011. Dr. Kim is a very competent, thorough and caring professional. I had laser treatments from him several times throughout the past years and have been very pleased. I have also been very satisfied with Alexis' work. His staff is very courteous and attentive. I had a laser treatment two days ago. The technician working with Dr. Kim was Brincia. She was also top notch. I have been a registered nurse for many years

If I could I would give him 10 stars!!! Dr. Kim is very compassionate. He helped me get motivated to loose weight I was over 204 pounds! I have lost 37 pounds!! He started treating me for my veins and I came to him with a lot of pain and swelling on my legs.I do not have any more pain on my legs. Dr. Kim has helped me not just physically but also emotionally. I felt very depressed before coming to see him and now I am SO HAPPY my legs don't hurt and I feel better.

He has given my confidence back and I cannot thank him enough. I have had a facial vein from forehead to my neck line very dark. After 2 sessions 50% improved. He also rid me of a 4x4 patch of blue, red and purple spider veins which was my main reason for going to Bellagio in the first place. I have been treated with care and dignity and consider Dr. Kim my favorite doctor in any field. He takes his time with me and I much appreciate him. Perhaps some of you reviewers should be more patient
