About Me

Hello, and thank you for visiting my Web page. I feel privileged to be given the responsibility for your anesthesia care.


I was born in Korea and came to New Jersey at a very young age. A medical mission trip to Thailand during my college years gave me the conviction that being a physician is my life’s calling. After my college years in New Jersey and medical school and residency in New York, I decided to move to Southern California. The warm weather often reminds me that this was indeed a good decision.

About my practice

My practice is based at Panorama City Medical Center. I am part of a team of physicians and nurse anesthetists who aim to deliver high-quality care. I believe good care entails your comfort and, most importantly, your safety. I strive to alleviate your anxiety by treating you and your family with compassion and sympathy. My colleagues are knowledgeable and a joy to work with. Needless to say, I am proud to be a part of this team.

How I thrive

I thrive by keeping a balanced life. This includes a proper diet and spending quality time with my wife, son and daughter. I also attend classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for exercise and also give back to the world by going on medical missions trips with my church.
