Kenneth Ip, MD

Ophthalmology, San Francisco

“Dr. Ip inspires excellence in his colleagues with his leadership style.”

The mark of a great leader is great vision, and Kenneth Ip, MD, sets a clear vision for service excellence and innovation.

He founded the tremendously successful Laser Vision Correction program at the San Francisco Medical Center, which helped address a growing demand for laser/refractive surgery. Some members already had begun going outside of Kaiser Permanente to obtain this popular procedure. However, Dr. Ip’s proactive approach brought it under the KP umbrella, ensuring that patients receive the highest levels of quality and service from physicians they know and trust.

Dr. Ip serves on the Ophthalmology Technology Committee to support the purchase of equipment which will yield the greatest and most enduring clinical value for patients cared for in Departments of Ophthalmology throughout the region. And as a charter member of the Refractive Surgeons Management Group, he brings the best techniques and trends in refractive surgery back to the members of his department.

As Chief of Ophthalmology, Dr. Ip has positioned his department for continual growth and excellence as an outstanding provider of leading edge care. His untiring dedication continues to inspire his colleagues and staff to strive high. Their performance consistently earns excellent ratings on all access and quality measures.
