My experience at my last appointment was very reassuring concerning my skin. I appreciate the kind service.

I went in for my second HALO treatment and it could not have been any better. After my first session, my skin’s appearance was so improved and the large scar on my left cheek (from a procedure over 15 years ago) had distinctly faded. Stacia, one of Dr Kim’s talented staffers, did the prep work on me and also the post-procedure work — she’s great! Dr Kim did the actual laser treatment and she was so smooth in the application of the laser. She talked to me throughout the procedure to be sure I was doing alright and I appreciated her concern; but, she is so masterful with the laser tools and I had no difficulties whatsoever.
The recovery after the second treatment has been much easier than the first, in part, I think, because I was more aware of the actual physical effects I would be seeing and feeling and I knew better how to mitigate them; a noticeable decrease in anxiety, for sure. I have to say, the directions Dr Kim gave me for dealing with the aftereffects and the skin recovery products she gave me were perfect: I followed the directions to a tee and everything went smoothly during my recovery.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Dr Jessica Kim and her staff at Summit Dermatology are simply the best; which is why she’s been my dermatologist for more than 15 years.

I have been seeing Dr. Kim for approximately one year and have found her and her staff to be caring and supportive. When Dr. Kim walks into the room, she greets me with a warm smile and is always happy. She is very professional and knowledgeable about current therapies and treatments. Whenever I have had questions, Dr. Kim was able to answer them in detail and make me feel comfortable. I receive compliments daily on how beautiful my skin looks! This is definitely due to Dr. Kim and her passion to make my skin look healthier & younger. Thank you!!

Beautiful office and staff! Dr. Kim is professional, approachable and kind. So many new skin care/treatments available and she provides information on the pros and cons of different treatments and made recommendations based on my skin and issues I was concerned about. I initially went to see her for sun damage to my face: including dark spots, dry patches and freckles. Her treatments have erased most of the freckles and dark spots but also improved the color and texture of my skin. She explains the treatment process I had laser peel, how it will feel, what to expect during /after and what the healing process typically looks like and how long it lasts! She makes recommendations regarding additional treatments based on my skins response to treatments and what my priorities are. Dr. Kim and her staff have become part of my regular skin routine ~ they also have great skin care products/sunscreens ~ love the results from each appt with Dr. Kim and her terrific staff!!

I will never go to another dermatologist again. Dr. Kim is the most knowledgeable doctor I’ve been too. Her and her staff are extremely thorough and professional. I felt cared for and comfortable from start to finish. I was given a well explained plan that would help me achieve what I was looking for. I have no complaints about my procedures and am excited to see more progress.

If I could give ten stars to Dr. Jessica Kim and Summit Dermatology, I would. Dr. Kim’s professionalism, knowledge, skill, and ability are top-notch. And I can attest that she has the gentlest touch whether meticulously examining my skin with her fingers or deftly using the latest instruments and devices with precision. All the members of her staff at Summit Dermatology (Daija, Abby, Stacia, et al) are very proficient in their craft and fully dedicated to serving the clients. When I walk into SD, the cozy surroundings of the office and the warmth of the greetings from her staff put me comfortably at ease. I know immediately that I’m in good hands.
Most recently, I was at Summit Dermatology for a HALO laser therapy procedure. Two weeks prior to having the treatment, Dr. Kim carefully explained to me all the aspects of the HALO procedure (what was being done, how long it would take, what I would feel when the lasers were applied to my skin, etc.), the recovery measures following the treatment, and the long-term impact the HALO therapy would have on my facial skin issues. She also provided me with accurate written materials that complemented and supplemented what she briefed me. Now that I’ve had the treatment, I can verify that it all happened in exactly the way Dr. Kim told me it would happen. I faithfully followed her post-procedure instructions and the recovery treatment oils and lotions she provided me worked beautifully to ease facial discomfort and stimulate healthy skin recovery.
Dr. Kim and her wonderful staff at Summit Dermatology are quite simply the very best. I’m nearly 73 and for almost 20 years Dr. Kim has been my dermatologist treating my medical and cosmetic skin issues – I trust her completely. Summit Dermatology is my place to go and Dr. Kim is my doctor to see. I strongly recommend that you make Summit Dermatology your place to go and Dr. Jessica Kim your dermatologist, too.

I have been going for the past few months in preparation for my upcoming wedding (I’m 68) and it has been amazing. My skin improvement and the attention to my comfort has been great and now I don’t have to be afraid of my wedding photographer. Thank you Dr. Kim and great staff.

Just returned from my third IPL treatment with Dr. Jessica Kim at Summit Dermatology in Olympia, WA. Dr. Kim and the Summit staff are professional, and don’t keep patients waiting in the lobby. I appreciate her candid communication and suggestions without a heavy sales pitch. Aging and brown spots disappear over several days with one or two IPL treatments. Will keep getting this treatment with the team at Summit Dermatology!
★★★★★ On Yelp, March 13th 2019
Underwent Cellfina (cellulite treatment) and tattoo removal from Dr. Kim/Summit Dermatology in Olympia. I am amazed at my results and couldn’t be happier! The cellulite on my butt is significantly improved. Dr. Kim always seems to have my best interest in mind, she is extremely personable and it’s obvious she is an expert in her field. Going in for cosmetic procedures can be daunting and sometimes embarrassing, but my experience with her office has been wonderful and I feel well taken care of. Would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family.
★★★★★ On RealSelf, January 20th 2019
Dr. Kim and her staff are friendly, knowledgeable and inviting. I was encouraged to ask any questions, or voice any concerns I had. I felt listened to the entire time, and never rushed. I will absolutely be returning and highly recommend this office!

As soon as I walked in I knew this was my place. The girls that helped me were great. They did a thorough job explaining all the details to the service! When doctor Kim came in she was so great. I was a little nervous but she reassured me and was excited for me! Her and Michaela work great together to get the job done! Thanks so much guys!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Kim for over 10 years. She is by far the best DERMATOLOGY doctor in our State. Her office and staff are immaculate. I would never go to another DERMATOLOGIST. She has the best updated equipment and she is a highly trained doctor. Her staff are all cross trained and know the profession well.
★★★★★ On Facebook, April 20th 2018
Summit Dermatology is a fabulous place! It is beautiful inside and very calm and serene. The staff are wonderful and very knowledgeable. Dr. Kim is amazing! Thank you for an awesome visit today!
★★★★★ On Yelp, April 6th 2018
Dr. Jessica Kim is fantastic! I love her personal approach to her patients. He mannerisms are professional and warm. She connects well with her patients and is friendly. She answers all question in a manner in which you can understand and doesn’t mind explaining the details of what she is doing and how your body responds (if you like the details) The office is very clean and has the most current equipment. I’ve had some sun damage and we talked about all the options and came up with a game plan to treat it now, ongoing and how to touch up in time. I’ve also had some fillers and Dysport. I like that the treatments to NOT make me look plastic and fake. Her approach is to make you look as close to normal as possible and make people wonder “what has changed”. I absolutely would not risk a medical procedure in the hands of someone who isn’t as skilled as a medical doctor. Visit her office, you will NOT be disappointed.

Professional, explained in detail without overwhelming, to the point. I am happy with my results so far
Melissa D.★★★★★ On Yelp, January 8th 2018
I had my first appointment with Dr.Kim four days ago. The office is very modern and clean. Her staff was super friendly, professional, and they all had beautiful skin. Dr.Kim was very nice and knowledgeable. They were up front with the costs for treatment and even had the option to start that day. I opted to think about it due to cost, but I did buy some of the skincare products she recommended. I bought the cleanser, toner, and face serum. These are seriously the best products I’ve ever used! I’ve only been using the products for four days and I already see a huge improvement in my skin clarity and texture. I can’t wait to see what results I’ll get from continued use!
Alexa K.★★★★★ On Facebook, December 22nd 2017
It was totally worth the 90 min. drive! Dr. Kim took the time to explain multiple treatment options as well as the benefits that none of the other dermatologist that I’ve seen previously.
The staff members were kind and professional.
I will continue to see her for follow up.
Thank you Dr. Kim!
Chrissy F.★★★★★ On Facebook, November 28th 2017This was my first time going to a dermatologist for cosmetic reasons, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. During my initial consultation, they analyzed my skin and targeted areas that needed improvement. The great thing was that Dr. Kim and her assistant came up with a year long plan to get my skin in better shape. They realize that the process can be overwhelming for new patients, so there was absolutely no pressure to commit to anything at the consultation. I was given a print out of all of the treatments that they felt would be best for me, and told me to go home and think about it. The office is relaxing and the staff is pleasant. Can’t wait to come back in for my treatments!
Tina D.★★★★★ On Facebook, October 4th 2017I expected improved skin but what I’ve received so far has been nothing short of exceptional. My face has a healthy natural glow, I’m much more aware of sun protection and I feel like I have a team of professionals helping me make educated choices about skin care based on my goals.
Amy P.★★★★★ On Facebook, September 9th 2017First of all, this place is beautiful, high end and clean. They definitely stand out in Olympia. Dr. Kim is professional and very smart, gives great advice and offers the best, up to date services in the industry. Her Estheticians are incredible too, so friendly and offer outstanding facials, lasers and services themselves. Very happy here!
Amy J.★★★★★ On Yelp, August 3rd 2017

Dr. Kim was professional, kind, and caring. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns. She helped me choose the right skincare treatments for me. She scheduled a two week follow up, which is great. At my former dermatologist’s office, I would have to call if I wanted a follow up, and wait a great length of time to get in. At the follow up, she made further suggestions and offered her opinion, which I appreciate. I’m looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Dr. Kim.

I first met Dr. Jessica Kim when she was assigned at Madigan. Over the past fifteen years or so she has been my dermatologist. I continue to marvel at her skill, her manner, her knowledge, and her delightful personality. I trust her like no other. Her staff at SD are absolutely terrific, too. The “care” I receive at SD is more than just medical — it’s genuinely personal. I heartily recommend Dr. Kim and am proud and grateful she’s my doctor
Kim W.★★★★★ On Yelp, March 9th 2017
Had my first appointment today, $50 consulting fee that is credited to your bill if you have a procedure. I have some sun damage, normal wrinkles and concerns. We discussed skin maintenance and procedures plus of course fees. Very professional, clean and quick. I was able to have my first procedure on the spot and was in and out in one hour. Dr. Kim and her assistant were very kind and always checking to see how I was doing. I will definitely return.Melissa S.★★★★★ On Google, March 7th 2017Excellent customer service, informative consultation, and exceptional results. I will be scheduling more procedures.…
Kelsy H.★★★★★ On Facebook, March 7th 2017I had an excellent first experience at Summit and saw results in the first week. I am looking forward to my next IPL treatment
Anna C.★★★★★ On Yelp, February 8th 2017
The office is very modern, friendly, and clean. The staff contacted me very quickly after I requested information. I was able to get an appointment within a very quick turnaround time. I went for later tattoo removal, and was able to have the first session at the first appointment. The procedure was quick. The staff and doctor were knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. I go back in five weeks for my second session. I am looking forward to going back and getting rid of my tattoo.
To update – I have had three sessions total to date. I have seen substantial lightening of this tattoo. Which by the way, is saturated with dark purple and could take six to twelve total sessions to remove.With each session we have increased the laser intensity slightly to make sure it is comfortable and appropriate. I took the summer off to allow more time for healing but I am ready to go back for my next round of sessions. This is a painful process but so worth it!!! I have hated this tattoo since I got it.

Falisha S.★★★★★ On Facebook, January 18th 2017This was my first time at a dermatologist office and I absolutely loved it! Dr. Kim’s space is beautiful, very clean and inviting. They were all so friendly. Her equipment and technology were all… brand new and top of the line. I was so nervous to get Botox, and it was so nice to have snacks and water available in the waiting area. It really helped my calm my nerves. My palms were sweaty because I didn’t know what to expect and they made the process so easy! I barely felt anything when getting the Botox. I love that she was able to put just the right amounts where I needed it. Looking forward to coming back for more treatments.

Michelle J.★★★★★ On Reviews Today, January 12th 2017Dr. Kim is the best in her field! I have been seeing her for over 10 years. I lost touch with her after she left her last practice and had to see other doctors, so when I found out she opened her own… practice I couldn’t wait to reunite with her. It takes me an hour longer to go see her but if it were 2 hours I would do it.. she is that good. She always knows the latest technology and has the top of the line products and machines. She listens to you, never rushes you, and is honestly concerned about helping you with your skin issues. She never talks you into anything and always explains what to expect . Dr. Kim is very compassionate and wants you to feel good about yourself. Please don’t think twice about seeing her. You will not be sorry. Also Machelle and Daija , her assistants, are sweethearts and always answer your questions and make you feel welcome. Olympia is very lucky to have Summit Dermatology and Dr.Kim!!
Michael D.★★★★★ On Reviews Today, January 9th 2017Fantastic skill and expertise. A warm and welcoming staff in a modern efficient environment. As a physician myself, I am careful who I entrust with the healthcare needs of my family, without a doubt …Dr Kim has earned my trust and is an expert in her field.
Angela H.★★★★★ On Facebook, January 9th 2017I had a pretty awful tattoo on my wrist that I got as a teenager. I was just beginning a new career and it was time for it to go! I went to Summit Dermatology to have it removed. The staff was veryknowledgeable about the process and what to expect as far as discomfort level, length of the treatment, the amount of treatments that would be needed, and the healing process in between treatments and after care. I was initially pretty nervous about getting it done because I had heard that it was very painful. While, it was uncomfortable, the procedure was very quick, so it was tolerable and totally worth the results. They applied a numbing cream, and provided an ice pack before the treatment, which helped a lot. I had one treatment without using the ice, and I definitely recommend icing the area beforehand, it makes quite a difference. Overall, it was a tolerable level of discomfort. I’m very pleased with the results. I didn’t experience any blistering or scarring. The staff is super friendly and professional, I definitely recommend!
