Testimonials from the patients of Dr. Gabriel M. Kind


Dr. Kind did all of my reconstructive surgery following my 2nd breast cancer diagnosis in 2006 and I can’t speak highly enough of his expertise and integrity. He is very approachable, yet always professional. I feature him on my website, and refer friends and family to him. He is a joy to work with!


Dr. Kind and his staff only had my best interests at heart. After the emotional whirlwind of having a bilateral mastectomy and the removal of breast implants due to breast implant complications, I didn’t know what to expect,….Dr. Kind relieved my fears and gave me hope …Dr. Kind was absolutely excellent.


Dr. Kind could not have a more appropriate name. … Dr. Kind is personable, sensitive, generous, and even funny. After I was diagnosed with cancer in only one breast, I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy due to my family history…..I feel I was in the best hands in the world. Cosmetically, I benefited from his artistically-picky-perfectionism. Dr. Kind will forever have a place in my heart.
