Call your doctor before leaving home if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in our community, visitor restrictions are in place for all Duke clinics and hospitals. For your safety and the safety of others, we recommend patients do not bring a visitor to Duke clinics, if at all possible. If a visitor must accompany a patient, only one individual over 12 years of age is allowed. Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms upon arrival. Individuals with flu-like symptoms are not allowed. View the complete list of Visitor Restrictions.

Effective immediately, Duke Health is prioritizing and rescheduling some non-emergent or non-critical surgeries, procedures, and appointments. Check our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) page for updates.

About Me

As a child, I woke up every morning hearing my father reading and reciting classic textbooks of traditional medicine. 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 a 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. 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.
