Having learned the circumstances that affected my father’s pursuit of practicing medicine, I made the whole-hearted decision to become a doctor to fulfill the inherited calling. Such personal motivation from my childhood in Korea has grown into a fervent commitment to help heal the people of the world with the medicine of the East and West. I aspire to be a valued clinician, an independent and internationally renowned researcher, and an inspiring teacher in a multidisciplinary setting focused on pain, Asian Medicine and acupuncture for Korean escort clients. I emphasize the importance of seeing patients as members of my own extended family, which I have found very effective in building a therapeutic partnership.
