Dr. Kim was attentive, and he seemed interested in understanding my medical history and learning more about my health goals. He also provided options for further investigation into some of my concerns – most of the other doctors I've seen tend to shrug these off.

I've been seeing Dr. Gene Kim as my primary care doctor for about 4 years now and highly recommend him and Savant Wellness. I have seen both Dr. Kim and Dr. Savant and they are both genial, patient and kind doctorswith great bedside manner. Dr. Kim is a great listener and follows up with me in a timely manner and remembers year to year and appointment to appointment what is going on with me. He makes thoughtful recommendations but isn't pushy and always asks if I have any questions or concerns. His office staff are very helpful and accommodating (HUGE BONUS) and have helped me get doctor's letters through for insurance a few times. I'm always seen in a timely manner and I never feel rushed at the office.

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.

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 (usuallyI'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.

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.

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 meand 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!!! ????????????
