Thank you for visiting my Web page. I am very happy to be part of a health care team that always strives to provide the best possible care, and I look forward to working with you to take care of your health.
I was born in South Korea and grew up mostly in the north suburbs of Chicago. I firmly believe in a medical education in different regions, so I moved to Tucson for residency after spending most of my life in Chicago. I soon found out that the desert could get very hot, which lead me to the paradise called Southern California.
I am a hospitalist who takes care of members who are admitted to the hospital. Providing members with health care is not like making cookies from a cookie cutter. Each person is different, and options for treatment differs for each person even for the simplest of diagnosis. That is why I try hard to know my members on person basis, not just on their illness.
I generally keep a positive attitude. There are always things in life that will stress you out, but being stressed is a state of mind. Keeping a positive attitude and staying calm not only helps in tough situations, but keeps me in a healthy state of mind.
