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.
