What People Say About Dr. Michael Kim, MD

I had consulted with other surgeons over the last 20 years but was never comfortable enough to proceed. The other surgeons were highly recommended by other doctors but something kept me from moving forward. At some point during the initial consult I was overwhelmed with trust in Dr. Kim. Something resonated in me that no matter what happened, he would do everything and anything to take care of me. I am a month post op and he and his staff still continue to make me feel like I am their only patient. Dr. Kim, Nicole, Bianca, Anne and Leslie exceeded my expectations. If you want an excellent surgeon that produces excellent results, with intuitive bedside manner and a great, competent and caring staff, see Dr. Michael Kim.

Dr. Kim did a brow lift and mini face lift on me in 2019, I don't think you can get a better physician. His work is top notch, and patient relationship is outstanding. A big thumbs up to Dr. Kim. Highly recommended.

Dr Kim performed carpal tunnel surgery on both my hands. He ran into complications with my right hand but was able to successfully complete the surgery. Both my hands are functioning better than ever. His staff is excellent and caring.

Dr.Kim did an awesome job on my tummy tuck! I am so happy with my results he has completely changed my life! I wish I would have done it sooner. The staff in the office and the surgery center were great as well. He also has a great bed side manner and is funny. If I ever need anything else done he will be the first person I will call. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. You’re the best Dr.Kim

I have had plastic work done in another state and then moved to FL. I asked many people and did my own research on who was the best of the best. I would have gone to Naples, Tampa or Miami. I didn't have to, he was right here in Fort Myers. I have been a frequent flyer with Dr. Kim . He is a true artist. I would never go to anyone else.

I highly recommend without reservation Dr. Kim, his staff and the professionals at SFI surgery center. I have seen examples of the work of Dr. Michael Kim, so I knew where to go to get a mass taken off the back of my head. What I didn’t know was how easy it turned out to be. I had no trouble getting an appointment. Dr. Kim and his staff were very friendly and professional. Dr. Kim was able to evaluate me efficiently and had his staff Jen, Nicole and Bianca arrange the surgery schedule that fit with mine. Dr. Kim was friendly and professional. The surgery was essentially painless and under local anesthesia. My cosmetic effect is excellent and I am very happy with the results of the surgery.

Dr. Kim is an amazing Plastic Surgeon. He has performed a number of elective surgeries on my wife with awesome results. He also had to perform one surgery that was not elective. We were very concerned as it was a very long and arduous procedure. My wife could not have been in better hands. Dr. Kim is such a kind and caring person. My wife was back on her feet in no time. The surgery was a complete success. Thanks again to Dr. Kim and we highly recommend him.
