Gabriel M. Kind, MD

(415) 565-6884 •

Dr. Gabriel Kind is once again J.’s Readers’ Choice recipient for best plastic surgeon in San Francisco. We share the recognition of Dr. Kind’s work with San Francisco and Marin magazines, who have named him top doctor numerous times. Dr. Kind has had a long interest in microsurgical breast reconstruction, and was among the first surgeons to perform the DIEP flap for breast reconstruction on the West Coast. He has likely done more breast reconstruction than anyone else in the Bay Area, though his expertise extends into all types of plastic surgery.

Looking at reviews about him, his patients use terms like “incredibly patient,” “answered all my questions,” “felt truly cared about from the staff to the doctor” and “ did such a beautiful job — he’s a perfectionist!” Not much more needs to be said!
