About me

Welcome to my home page. My first name is Dohwa (pronounced like “dow ha”) and I am delighted to have this opportunity to share my credentials, background and passions with you. I believe that it is vey important to develop a personal relationship with my patients and I hope that this webpage will help with that.


I was born and raised in Seoul, Korea and studied medicine there at Yonsei University. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 to be closer to my mother and sister, as my family is very important to me. I completed my internal medicine training at SUNY Buffalo and then decided that the sunshine of Californian winter was much more appealing than the cold Northeast. I completed my geriatric fellowship program at UCLA and stayed there as a faculty member for a time before moving to USC, where I have spent the last 17 years working as an assistant professor in different geriatric roles and locations. I now have a very handsome nine-year-old son who has recently discovered rock music and guitars so I find my time at work much more peaceful than at home.

About my practice

I really enjoyed my childhood with my grandmother who became my great motivation to become a geriatrician. My passion is to work with seniors to ensure they enjoy the best quality of life possible, whatever personal challenges that they face. I believe that the better that my patients understand their circumstances, the better we can work as a team to ensure that they enjoy an active, engaged life.

How I thrive

I enjoy a balanced home and professional life. My great passion is to travel, and I have visited many countries and cultures over the last 30 years and will continue to do so. I maintain my physical fitness by running after my son, and I enjoy playing tennis and doing yoga and Pilates. I have just recently started to play golf but I doubt if I could even qualify as a beginner. I believe that a good mix of these activities and looking after my son make me a better and more understanding doctor.
