Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my Ob/Gyn practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born Seoul, Korea around the time of the Korean War. After medical school, I decided to come to the United States for my higher education. I did my residency in Ob/Gyn and medical studies in Syracuse at State University of New York Upstate Medical University. I have four cats and enjoy their company dearly. I love to play golf. When I do travel, I try to return to Korea to visit my family, or go back east to enjoy the summer days.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; it is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family. Innovation and improving my surgical skills, especially minimally invasive surgery in my field, is also an important part of my practice. I strive to always look forward.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I volunteer for the Meals on Wheels from my church program in downtown Los Angeles. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax, read a good novel, or play golf or computer games with my grandchildren.
