*Kathy K. Bak really affected my son's willingness to have a female doctor negatively; he's had female doctors his entire life: This woman asked no questions and gave no explanations -

Dr. Bak is an excellent physician and receptive to my concerns. The visit resulted in over an hour wait due to other issues in the office. Dr. Bak was very apologetic but still spent appropriate time with me.

Dr Bak was assigned to me when my previous physician left. I feel very lucky to have been given to Dr Bak and would not think to go to anyone else. // Both nurse and Doctor are good listeners and take notes and make sure they have covered everything at end of visit. Very professional and reassuring.

The physician was very active in her dialogue with myself (father) and our son. She addressed the symptoms & addressed the needs of our son while also setting up f/u care for his heart condition. Thank you.

Doctor treated me like a file with a number - she was very quick for my first visit/consultation (and new to Kaiser) and she didn't address (or mention) 2 of 3 concerns on my intake form.

Dr. Bak is clear, personable, and is regularly updating herself on my chronic illness and how to best manage it. Pretty impressive, and I truly appreciate all of her efforts at making my transition to new provider easier.

Dr. [name] was my old doctor (for the last 7 years), and I was very nervous about getting a new one. But she was amazing - knowledgeable, polite and culturally responsive as well - quite refreshing! Thank you Kaiser for bringing on such good new docs.

When I was a year old, my family left Seoul, South Korea, with two suitcases and 40 bucks and immigrated to Los Angeles. We all worked hard--then fast forward 30 years, and I became the first doctor ever in my family! After residency, my husband, a Chicago native, and I moved to Klamath Falls, Oregon, where I practiced as a country doctor. We lived a quiet life among the trees and lakes for eight years, but eventually we missed city life, and now here we are. Though I am a transplant from California (a well-known topic of contention), I bring the best of southern California with me. I have a sunny disposition, and rain and clouds never get me down. I drive slowly and carefully, and I smile and say hello to strangers without being the least bit creepy.

About my practice

I enjoy the broad spectrum of Family Medicine, but pediatrics are my favorite. I am here to help you live a healthier and happier life, without the restrictions and limitations of illness and disease. I look forward to meeting you and creating a lastng partnership to help in your journey of living life abundantly and fearlessly.

How I thrive

I enjoy reading, travelling, participating in medical missions, and sometimes just vegging out in front of the TV. I bring with me all of my good intentions (any Joy Luck Club readers out there?), and the hope of making a rich life here in Portland with a few new friends, goods eats, and a career of helping others.
