About me

Hello! I’m happy to have this opportunity to tell you a bit about my practice and myself. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my colleagues and our members. I look forward to meeting you and becoming a part of your health care team.

Biography

I was born in Seoul, Korea. I’m blessed with a very loving, large, close-knit family. I grew up in New Jersey and New York and have had terrific opportunities to meet and learn from people of diverse economic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. I attended 2 engineering colleges and graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with degrees in biology and literature. I received my medical education at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and completed residency training at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. I chose to become a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist to focus on members’ quality of life.

About my practice

As a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, I work closely with other physicians, therapists, nurses, and medical assistants to help ensure optimal health care for our members. I see members with musculoskeletal conditions, such as back and neck pain, and impairments, such as amputated limbs, weakness, or numbness of extremities. My job is to minimize members’ pain and maximize their function. I believe every member needs to be evaluated as a whole person, taking his or her family, cultural, and even religious background into consideration, and treatments should heal the member’s body, mind, and spirit to the greatest degree possible.

How I thrive

I strive to learn every day and be kind to others. I try to read for education and leisure daily and exercise as much as I can. I’m very proud of my scuba diving certification (especially given my aqua phobia) and my experiences of having run 3 full marathons and 3 half marathons. I enjoy playing tennis, golfing, skiing, and learning to be a better fly-fisherman.
