Great personality and very thoughtful. Very pleasant to interact with. Dr. Kim was very friendly, and I felt well taken care of.
Patient and very mellow. I haven't been in a doctors office in years so naturally I wasn't looking forward to it but he made it pleasant.
Dr. Kim is always excellent! I have recommended colleagues of mine to him and will continue to see him anytime I am in San Francisco working.
It was pretty great, and also hes such an understanding doctor
Dr Kim was awesome, you can tell he's a competent doctor. I came in with a bunch of questions and concerns and I left feeling taken care of. He was very nice and made me feel comfortable. The wait time (45 minutes) was the only downside.
He is a great doctor, and also has superb patient communication skills (he listens to you!). I highly recommend him to anyone.
Came to Dr. Kim on the recommendation of a friend after moving to SF. Dr. Kim is incredibly friendly, accomodating and professional. He saw me right away and spent more time with me than I would expect from a physician (usually I've had nurses doing almost everything and the doctor poking his head in to ask if I have any questions). Definitely going to keep Dr. Kim as my primary care doctor, and would recommend him to anyone in the SF, USF/UCSF area.
Dr. Kim was very kind and thorough. He took the time to address each of my concerns and present various solutions for them. He also personally followed up about lab work, which made me feel really well cared for. If you're looking for a great doctor, Dr. Kim fits the bill!
friendly, funny, kind, and an overall helpful doctor. Definitely recommend
It turns out I went to Dr. Kim back in 2009. I moved away for a few years and came back to San Francisco about four years ago, and I accidentally found myself back in Dr. Kim's office for a checkup (I didn't realize/remember that I had been there back then until I was in the office). I'm glad for it. Dr. Kim is friendly, reassuring, and thorough. He gave me several printouts and talked me through everything. Hey, I guess I have a doctor now.
Fantastic professional. Listens to patient's concerns.
Dr. Gene Kim is a great professional. He listens to patient's concerns and addresses them timely.

Dr. Kim was amazing! Not only was the check-in process super quick and friendly via his staff, but his previous patient walked out laughing (definitely a plus compared to regular offices)! After about 3 or so minutes, Dr. Kim greeted me and immediately made me feel at ease, as if I was talking to a friend I've known my whole life. He was not only knowledgeable but encouraging too about my health. Quick, friendly, and concise. If you're looking for a primary care physician, definitely see Dr. Kim!!! ????????????

Great experience! He is very nice, helpful, knowledgeable and a great listener! ;)
I am a new patient. From my first conference with him, I feel I am in good hands.
Dr. Kim is probably the best MD I have ever seen! He answered all of my questions without getting impatient. I did not feel rushed by him but I was the one rushing because I'm so used to other doctors. I'm looking forward to working with Dr. Kim.
It was Quick, but didn't feel rushed. Genuinely seemed to care about well being and was friendly.
Really helpful and great listener, gives positive evaluations
Very pleasant visit!
Very personable doctor with good bedside banner who spent time with me going through my questions.
Very informative and excellent service
Very friendly, was able to accommodate even though I was almost 30 minutes late.
He was responsive and funny. He didn't seem to be in a rush. He wanted to get to know me and my family setting. He saw me early, when I showed up early. He introduced me to his office partner (staff) so I would be familiar with the person would help me secure referrals ... super helpful and very thoughtful. I've tried 2 other docs on zocdoc for primary care options and he treated me like he actually wanted to take on another patient. highly recommend.
The visit was great. Dr. Kim was open to my thoughts on treatment and medication. The only piece of feedback I have was that the long wait sucked, although I think they had just brought on a new staff member in reception and that was a one-off type of situation.
Dr. Kim was amazingly helpful and attentive. He answered all my questions and provided proactive advice on places to get bloodwork done, etc. What I really appreciated was the clear next steps for myself. Great experience.
I was nervous to visit a new doctor in San Francisco but Doctor Kim eased my nerves amiable personality.
Dr. Kim has been my PCP for many years and he's been the best doctor I've seen since moving to the city over 8 years ago. Extremely personable and easy to talk to. Super nice guy!
Had been traveling internationally and came back with some fever symptoms. Gene asked all the right questions and really listened. Made me feel more at ease. Will definitely go back!
Extremely nice, wait time was fast! He's the best!
Very knowledgable and understanding. He gives you options given your circumstance and doesn't push for anything in particular. Made me feel very comfortable and everything was quick and to the point!
He's always awesome and caring and attentive!
Dr. Gene Kim was fantastic! Highly recommend
Great doctor - would definitely go back.
Seems like a great GP. Friendly and caring. But waited an hour after scheduled appointment time to actually see him. Kinda silly. Maybe I should just show up an hour late for appointments?
I was seen thirty minutes early! Very fast and efficient, and Dr. Kim was helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!!!

Wow! It's been a while since I've had such a pleasant physical appointment. Dr. Kim very patiently answered all my questions and made helpful suggestions. He struck me as confident, humble and knowledgeable. I got in right away and even though the appointment did not feel rushed at all, I was on my way well before I had anticipated.
Terrific doctor! Smart, sympathetic, and everything else you'd want from your doctor. The rest of the staff is kind and helpful as well.
Great guy to talk to, smooth experience.
Dr. Kim was great! He really took the time to get to know me & my symptoms without rushing me through the appointment. His recommendations were sound and thorough. Really glad I found him and will definitely see him again in the future. Highly recommend!
Doc Kim rules. My personality is usually informal, often joking around, and Gene was able to match and add to the funny banter while providing me a detailed examination of my condition. Also, he called up me twice to see how I was doing. This guy rules.

A fantastic Doctor that takes time with me and answers all of my questions. Super kind and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kim was so friendly and nice and his office is the same way! Such a speedy appointment, i was taken in right after i checked in :-)
Nothing but a pleasant experience. Dr. Gene Kim is an all around great guy. The staff is also very friendly and easy to work with. He knows his stuff and has great bedside manner. Not a pill pusher and you can tell he cares. Definitely would recommend him to anyone needing a primary care doc.
Dr Kim was warm, friendly, relaxed and professional. He completely puts you at ease and you don't feel at all rushed. A wonderful experience.

Never a wait and always friendly and makes you at ease!
Friendly and professional. Really enjoyed my appointment, would certainly recommend him to a friend!
It was New Year's Eve, and I had a hacking cough that would not quit for weeks. I was able to get an appt with his office the same day. Was in the waiting room for about 10 minutes, and Dr. Kim was thorough and gracious. Later in the same day, one of the medicines he prescribed has already made me feel better.
I've been seeing Dr. Kim for a few years now and am very sad I'll be moving out of the area away from him. Excellent Doc & I looked forward to every appointment. Very personable and knowledgeable. Nice receptionists as well!
No wait, nice guy, no complaints!
very professional and friendly, made me feel very comfortable
Awesome doctor - would see him again if I was back in the area. Highly recommended!
Cancelled my appointment after waiting for more than 40 minutes. Would not go back.
Great! Super friendly and very knowledgable.
Dr. Kim was attentive and listened to all of my concerns without making me feel rushed. He was informative and friendly.
Overall another great visit... he is knowledgeable, friendly, and very easy to talk to. Highly recommended
My first visit, it went very well. Will definitely go back to see Gene again next year.
He's my primary doctor for almost a year now. And my husband's too, recently! He's always prompt, doesn't rush his appointments and is pleasant to speak with. He's chill and is not a pill pusher. Very happy with his bedside manner.
Dr. Gene Kim is everything you could ask for in a doctor! I just moved here and I'm particular about my doctors but he's very professional, kind, and effective.
Great experience, was very promptly seen by Gene, he was very courteous and professional. Answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. I left feeling like I was in very good hands. I feel like I have finally found a GP in the city that I can see regularly!
I've been his patient for over a year now and he is just amazing! Very thorough, helpful, and clear. I like that he makes a real effort to know his patients and remembers more about you than just your medical history. I highly recommend Dr. Gene Kim.
I love visiting Dr. Kim. He is super friendly, gives great and honest answers and helps me find labs that fit with my insurance. He is going to be my main doctor from now on!
Dr Kim was so wonderful. He was kind and made sure he answered all my questions. He also was very thorough in explaining my illness and my options. I found him through zoc doc on the day I was feeling sick and he was able to see me the same day. I will definitely be going back to him as my primary care physician.
Professional and more than willing to take the time to answer all questions. First visit did not feel rushed or dismissive at all unlike experiences I've had with other doctors. Very knowledgeable and if the topic veered outside his territory he was quick to recommend other specialists. Highly recommend.
Great bedside manner and good listener.
Like some of the other patients on Zocdoc, I stumbled upon Dr. Kim purely via sifting through the Zocdoc user reviews. As a recent transplant to SF, I was in dire need of a new PCP. I believe I found one in Dr. Kim. He was very easy to connect with, asked only relevant diagnostic questions for my ailment, and I left the office confidently with a good treatment plan in hand.
Been seeing dr. Kim for the last year now. Awesome doctor won't go anywhere else
Very sincere and super knowledgable.
Dr. Kim is awesome, super friendly and makes you feel welcomed. Have seen him several times now and plan for that to continue as well. Would recommend to everyone.
He's great, easy to talk to.
He was thorough, professional, answered questions openly and seems empathetic
Friendly and efficient, as always.
When in the area, I would absolutely return for a visit or consultation if needed. Great personality and great, quick service with good, solid advice. Thanks!
Great first experience using ZocDoc, and Dr. Kim was very helpful booking me last minute and recommending treatment for a small injury.
He was great. Very comfortable, very helpful, and very knowledgeable.
On time, very attentive and personable.
Friendly and knowledgeable. He knew the right questions to ask and was thorough without being length.
Just moved to SF and chose Gene based on location and his Zocdoc rating and had my fingers crossed. As it turns out, Gene is a fantastic doctor! Gene is highly personable, very methodical, and patient - he took as much time as I needed to hear about my case and was both assuring as well as informative about my options. Highly, highly recommended.
Helpful and respectful
I saw Dr. Kim today for a first-time visit for a primary care doctor. He was personable, easy to talk to, listened critically to what I was saying and made helpful suggestions/revisions to the treatment I was previously receiving.
I used ZocDoc to find a Dr in my area and Dr. Kim was the highest rated. He was excellent! He has wonderful bedside manner, is very thorough and I will definitely return to his office again.
Dr. Kim is a true professional! Very knowledgeable and really gave me insight on my problem. He was very thorough with my doctor visit. He offered some advice on how to tackle some of my health issues. He's very pleasant to talk with and non-judging. I highly recommend him!
Gene was kind, open, and shared professional views in a clear and concise manner. I highly recommend him for a general practitioner.
Dr Gene was so nice and attentive. I havent had a doctor who was as informative and actually listened to what i was saying about my problems. He didnt just brush off my thoughts but rather led what i was thinking to a logical solution of how to deal with healing properly. I highly recomend him to anyone looking for a nice, attentive and professional doctor!!
Dr. Kim spent my entire appointment with me! I was only there to get a few shots, and he talked me through all my options, gave me a brief physical, and gave me my shots. Terrific customer service, excellent bedside manner. I would highly recommend going to Dr. Kim.
Dr Kim was very helpful, professional, and personable. I definitely plan to make him my primary care physician. He personally took my blood pressure, oral medical history, listened attentively to my illness symptoms, prescribed great medications, and gave me a thorough explanation of chest congestion and flu-like symptoms. I had a real conversation with him for at least 15-20 minutes. Fantastic doctor.
Very friendly and helpful!
Very kind and willing to answer questions.
First time patient, but Dr. Kim was great. Felt comfortable the entire time and he was very attentive and friendly.
New to San Francisco, was looking for a Primary Care Doctor in the area and was able to book an appointment with Gene Kim the very next day. When I arrived and completed all of the new patient paperwork, I was seen almost immediately. Gene was very personable and made me feel comfortable being in his care. He was also able to dig through his roledex of specialist contacts for recommendations in other areas of care that were closer to my office and home. I highly recommend Dr. Kim.
Very approachable and caring. Very willing to help you get better as well as to get to know you on a more personal level
The visit was very good, Dr. Gene was awesome, he answered all our questions. He took his time. I was very satisfied with the consultation. I highly recommend him.
Excellent bedside manner and really does care for what he's doing!
Dr. Kim was really nice and personable. He took time to give answer my questions, and made me feel very comfortable.
Great doctor, very easy and knowledgeable. Think we've found our SF family doctor!
Dr kim was great
Second time seeing Dr. Gene and it was great! His bedside manner is excellent and I love that he remembered me. I also got to the office almost 30 minutes before my appointment and was seen early!!
I really liked Gene's demeanour. He was friendly and professional. I felt like I was in good hands during my visit. The reception staff were also friendly and helpful, and my wait was only due to me filling out my forms because it was a first time visit. I had originally thought that I would probably get another doctor closer to my new place when I move, but I liked Gene so much that I am now fairly certain I will keep him as my doctor.
I have found my doctor! Great bed side manner, concise explanations, and just overall great experience.
Patient, kind, took the time to listen and respond. Personable. Would highly recommend Gene.
Nice and friendly doctor but I am not extremely satisfied yet.
First time visit for me but one of the best. Dr. Kim is very professional, very detailed and made me immediately comfortable. Best of all, Dr. Kim is one of those rare doctors who conveys genuine care, concern and empathy!
It was a terrific visit. Everyone was very nice and I felt very welcomed and comfortable.
I went to see Dr. Gene Kim because of all the great reviews. My expectation was set pretty high, but he went above and beyond that! Excellent bedside manner- I felt that he really cared about me. I am definitely using him as my doctor and recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Kim was awesome. He made me feel comfortable, and he asked me a good amount of questions so that he was able to gain a sense of what he was diagnosing. He was friendly and honest, and he was a great listener. I 100% recommend him.
Dr Kim has excellent bedside manner. He is very friendly and helpful. I greatly appreciated that he understood the trade-offs of different treatments and diagnostics needed and explained them thoroughly in non-judgmental tones.
Dr. Kim is great -- very personable, detail oriented and made me feel at ease when discussing health problems.
I liked that he was very relaxed and friendly. Where most doctors spend only fifteen minutes with a patient, he took time to really talk and listen to me, go over my lab results, etc. Felt very comfortable with him. My husband and I finally have our primary physician!
Dr Kim is incredible! He really sits down with you and walks through all of your concerns! Really great doctor!
1st time with Dr. Kim and I'll definitely be returning and will continue to use as a primary. He's thorough, personal, and makes you feel extremely comfortable. The office itself is nothing to write home about, but the staff is extremely friendly and on top of things.
Dr. Kim is fantastic! I came to him with concerns about a medical condition and he was very patient, working with me over a couple of months to find a solution that was specific to me and my needs. He listened carefully to my thoughts and answered my questions thoroughly. I was hesitant to start the medication for the condition I was concerned about, so he started me off with a lower dosage and worked with me to find the right amount. He is easy to talk to, I immediately felt comfortable talking to him about personal matters that he took into account while diagnosing and prescribing medication. He is very funny, laid-back and polite. Dr. Kim is hands down the best doctor I've ever had, I highly recommend him!
I found my primary doctor. I'm very lucky to have found him on zocdoc. My husband will see him and officially make Dr Kim our family primary care doctor!
I love Dr. Kim! Has great bedside manners and was a joy to talk to. He put me at ease! So glad to have him as a general care practitioner.
Very thorough and friendly. He explained everything in an informative manner without being condescending, and made sure his point got across. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kim was very thorough, friendly and took a lot of time to explain everything to me. Much better experience than the rushed One Medical appts. I'm happy I switched.
Great PCP overall! Answered my questions, was thorough in his approach and very personable-- did not let his laptop get in the way of conversation. Knowledgable about the latest recommendations relevant to a general checkup and preventative care.
Great doctor. Very personable. Would be my doctor had I not moved.
I really liked him, easy to talk to, quick with answers and was very genuine. Would and will see again!
Dr. Kim is AWESOME. He's friendly, kind, patient, thorough—has an awesome vibe. His office is great—people there couldn't be nicer. I came early and was seen early. I lucked out finding him: He's my new doctor!
So pleased to have a nice doctor in my neighborhood. I've had a lot of trouble getting my insurance to work properly for me, and Dr. Kim's office was very helpful. It's a huge relief to know where to get thoughtful, professional help.
Very personable and professional!
Great visit. Kind, thoughtful and made sure he answered all of my questions.
Super welcoming and willing to answer all questions. Made me feel so much better and well taken care of.
