Philosophy of Care

I am passionate about doing what is best for my patients. I try to see from their perspective, and gauge their understanding of what is going on, their anxiety and expectations. In this way, I can provide evidence-based, up-to-date treatment in a humanistic and empathic way. In essence, I try to treat my patients how I want my family to be treated.

Get to Know Me

I am lucky to have lived in three different countries so far (Korea, United Kingdom and USA). I love exploring different places and new food, and meeting people to learn things that I did not know before. Traveling with family or friends is always fun!
