Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your child’s physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in Seoul, South Korea, and, along with my family, immigrated to the United States when I was 8 years old. California has been my home ever since. I became a pediatrician because it allows me to practice medicine while working with children. Even the most difficult days at my clinic are often full of laughter and joy. I could not imagine doing anything else. Although my medical training is extensive, it is my daughter and son who have taught me to be a wiser and more empathetic pediatrician.
I feel very privileged that parents have entrusted me with their child’s care, and I will always strive to treat him or her as I would my own family. I believe in preventive care and emphasize healthy living. I approach medical problems by focusing on the whole family not just on the patient. My practice is open to everyone from newborns to those who are 17 years old.
My family life is my major priority, and I try to keep a balance between work and my personal life. I make time to read and to pursue a spiritual life. My children and my dog help me keep physically active every day!
