Hi, my name is James Yi. I've been practicing optometry for almost 10 years now. It's amazing how time flies. I enjoy providing members with care and making the experience as fun and as enjoyable as possible.
I was born in Glendale, California, and have been a resident of Southern California for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I spent a lot of time outside, biking and playing sports. Still to this day, I like spending my free time outdoors. My parents always emphasized respect to my elders and kindness to my neighbors. After optometry school, I completed my primary care residency at the VA hospital in San Diego, but spent a large portion of my career with specialty contacts and family practice.
I joined the Kaiser Permanente team in 2014. It has been a choice that I am very happy I made. At Kaiser Permanente, I have access to some of the best technology and to the support of staff and doctors who work together to provide members with high-quality care. My philosophy is to listen to members’ visual needs and together come up with solutions and recommendations that will enhance their eyesight as well as their daily lives.
I like spending my free time biking, hiking, running, and traveling, but I find the comforts of home just as enjoyable.
