Patient Care Coordinator
Recognized as “the sweetest one in the office,” Kathy is that previously unrecognized jewel in our practice. Initially joining SGK as a Certified Surgical Technologist in 2013, it was Kathy’s thoughtful, caring attitude and sincere desire to help others that drew Kathy to the Patient Care Coordinator role she serves in today.
Kathy’s extensive background in assisting Dr. Kim through the years of surgical procedures now provides her with a unique insight, which she uses to assist patients in selecting their choice of aesthetic enhancements.
Kathy’s no-question-to-small approach and genuine desire to make every patient’s encounter a special one has made her an outstanding window into our practice. After Kathy helps patients in scheduling their initial appointments, she continues to facilitate and guide patients throughout their transformative process. This often entails Kathy being present with Dr. Kim as the initial visit and aiding to create a customized aesthetic plan that establishes a unique, personal experience for each patient.
In addition to her role as PCC, Kathy also provides her compassionate care in the area of non-invasive procedures. Trained and certified in the use of IPL and Morpheus8, Kathy performs these services for patients not requiring or not ready for a surgical approach to their aesthetic needs.
Away from the office, Kathy enjoys exercising, interior design, and hanging out with friends/family.
