About me

I was born in Mountain View, California, and raised in Busan, South Korea. After going to high school at the Korea Science Academy, I returned to the U.S. for undergraduate study at Northwestern University in Illinois. I then did my medical schooling at Yonsei University College of Medicine back in South Korea.

In the 1950s many Koreans suffered from malnutrition because of the insufficient food supply during the Korean War. To help solve this massive problem, my grandfather, a university professor of agriculture, created ways to improve crop yields and quality. He taught me to be passionate about my work and instilled in me a strong work ethic.

About my practice

After college I was employed by a research group that was studying the benefits of walking for exercise in people who had poor blood circulation in the legs due to peripheral arterial disease. I found that I really enjoyed working with patients and was inspired to see their symptoms improve as they participated in the program. To have a more active role in helping to keep people healthy, I decided to go to medical school. I chose internal medicine as my specialty because I enjoyed the long-term interaction with patients as well as the logical thinking process involved in making medical decisions.

One of my other professional interests is cancer immunotherapy. At a meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research I presented findings on survival rates related to tumor characteristics among women with ovarian cancer.

To stay up-to-date on current medical research, I use the online resource UpToDate, read professional journals, participate in continuing medical education courses, and consult with colleagues. My membership in the American College of Physicians also gives me access to information on the latest developments in medicine.

As a first-generation immigrant to the U.S., I find great value in the cultural and ethnic diversity in this country, particularly in Hawaii. Receiving my internal medicine training at Kaiser Permanente in Hawaii allows me to provide care to people from a wide range of backgrounds and occasionally even speak Korean, my native language.

As my patients and I work toward a shared goal of better health, I strive to treat them as if they’re my own my family. Also, I believe good listening is one of the most effective ways to learn about patients’ symptoms, concerns, and cultural preferences in order to give them the best possible care.

How I thrive

In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my family, relaxing with friends at the beach, and watching streaming television. If I feel stressed or tired, I go out for a run, lift weights, or hike one of the many beautiful trails on Oahu.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business and uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.
