"I was a bit apprehensive as this was my first visit to a dermatologist to check for skin cancer but I am so glad I picked Couture. I had the pleasure of being assigned Dermatologist Grace Kim. She made me feel comfortable and took time to explain about skin cancer and what procedures she was doing. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment to see Dr. Kim if you have not had your skin checked for cancer. They do many other dermatology and plastic surgery procedures but I can't speak for them other to say Dr. Kim and all of the staff are spot on (no pun intended.)"
"Followed Dr. Kim to this office. Great doctor and just as important a great office. You won't have long wait times and everything from the doctor to the staff is professional. The office is right off of the 95 by Mountain View hospital so it's a convenient location and the office is clean and doesn't look dated. Dr. Kim is a knowledgable innovative doctor but kind and thoughtful in her approach. She takes her time in educating and finding the right treatment for you. I've been seeing her now for a year and have been very happy with her and this office."
"Dr. Kim is the BEST my face was a total mess horrible outbreak of adult acne she prescribed me medication to treat my acne inside and out and you can really tell the difference with my skin now I am so happy with the results. Thank you Dr. Kim"
"I have gone to Couture Medical once a month for almost a year. I have never EVER waited for more than ten minutes to be called back. The waiting room is never packed or busy. The office staff is second to none. They are always friendly, fast, and personable. If I ever call with an issue or question, they handle it quickly and actually answer the phone when you call.I see Dr. Kim and she is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She listens, is extremely intelligent, and actually cares about your results. I absolutely love this place and am so glad I found it."
"Came here for my initial consultation a few months ago after receiving a referral from my Primary Doctor. Love this place! The waiting room is gorgeous and comfortable. Thankfully you don't have to wait too long since this office is on time with they're appointments. Dr. Kim was knowledgable, smart and quick with her diagnosis. I came in for one thing and got a referral for Strataderm for a scar. I like the convenience of being able to purchase right in her office. It works wonders. Better than any over the counter scar treatment. Looking for a new dermatologist? Choose Coutoure Medical."
