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 practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in South Korea and immigrated to the United States when I was only 7 years old. I come from a family of five. Now, I am married and have two beautiful daughters of my own. I volunteer for Hippocrates Circle—a physician-run mentoring program for underprivileged middle-school students. I think it’s very important to give back to the community and invest in our children.
My practice focuses on hip and knee pathologies. I specialize in anterior hip replacement surgery, and partial and total knee replacement surgery. I feel it’s my responsibility to ensure that members understand their medical conditions and treatment options—including risks and benefits—so they can be more fully involved in the decision-making of their treatment plan. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I spend the majority of my free time with my family but I make time to exercise.
