Kaiser Permanente physician
English, Korean, Spanish
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I've wanted to be a physician as long as I can remember. I was born in Seoul, Korea, and moved to Southern California when I was young. I love the diversity and warm weather that it offers, and can't picture myself living anywhere else. I went to UCLA for my undergraduate studies, obtained my master's degree at UCLA School of Public Health, then went on to receive my medical degree at Western University of Health Sciences.
I always thought that I wanted to be a pediatrician until I entered medical school. While volunteering with family medicine doctors during my first year of med school, I had the opportunity to take care of people of all ages, young and old. I completely fell in love with the idea of being a family doctor, who sees everyone from newborns to seniors, being able to take care of an entire family and also having the opportunity to get to know my patients. As a family medicine physician and having received education in public health from graduate school, I strongly believe in the importance and value that preventive medicine provides to our patients and the health of our nation as a whole. I encourage all my patients to get cancer screenings done and to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle to decrease the risk of chronic medical conditions or complications. I am here as your health care provider to help you stay healthy and live well.
I love spending time with my family, including my adorable three pets, as well as my friends. I enjoy trying out different foods and restaurants, reading, watching good TV series and movies, traveling, shopping, and running!
