About me

Hi, my name is Dr. Kwak (pronounced like 'QUOK'). I am a general surgeon specializing in critical care medicine. I am happy to have this opportunity to share a bit about me and my practice.

Biography

I am originally from the Pacific Northwest, but love the weather here in Southern California. My passion to be a doctor arose from my exposure to an emergency room physician who provided low-cost care to the less fortunate out of a little clinic space in the center of Pike Place Market.

About my practice

Drs. Handman, Koss and I are a subspecialty group of surgeons who manage critically ill patients in the ICU usually following surgery. I also see a wide variety of general surgery cases.

How I thrive

I strongly believe in the healthy body-healthy mind philosophy. I strive to keep physically active to help put the stressors affecting the mind at bay. My activities of choice are dance classes, boxing, and jogging. Even 10 minutes of activity a day goes a long way!
