He completed his fellowship in Richmond, where he cared for cosmetic patients, facial trauma victims, and veterans, for whom he holds the utmost respect.


During his head and neck surgery residency, Dr. Kim was inducted by his peers into the Gold Humanism Honor Society, an honor given to physicians who exemplify the human connection in the practice of medicine. He emphasizes listening to patients, and his goal is to enhance each individual’s unique natural beauty to help them look and feel their best.
