Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hello, my name is Burt Charuworn. I have been a pulmonary doctor at Kaiser Permanent since 2008. I look forward to working together with you to achieve good health.
I was born in Thailand but grew up in Southern California. After graduating from UCLA, I went to New York Medical College. After a brief stint in the East Coast, I decided to return to Los Angeles to finish my medical training (residency and fellowship) at UCLA.
I enjoy working at Kaiser Permanente because of the collaboration and communication with my colleagues. This is what makes an organization successful. It is also what makes a relationship between a physician and a patient rewarding. I like to keep an open line of communication with patients, and it certainly helps that patients can freely email Kaiser Permanente physicians through Kaiser Permanente.org.
I believe good health entails not only good physical health but also good mental health. Having a good understanding of your body as well as having good grasp of illnesses allows a person to better tackle any health challenges. I try to stay healthy by staying active physically and mentally.
