About myself. Over the 25 years of my medical practice, I have provided accurate diagnoses and appropriate treatments for people with conditions affecting their emotional, behavioral, neurodevelopmental, and psychological well-being. These people have ranged in age from young children through adulthood.

I graduated from Yonsei University School of Medicine in Seoul, South Korea. I completed my Residency in General (Adult) Psychiatry, and then my Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

After training, I taught child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry to medical students, to psychiatric residents, and to child and adolescent psychiatric fellows as Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinics in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and later as Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio.

I have served:

  • as Inpatient Psychiatric Unit Director for hospitalized patients.
  • as Psychiatric Consultant for patients enrolled in day treatment programs.
  • as Psychiatric Consultant for students enrolled in specialized school programs.
  • as Outpatient Treating Psychiatrist for major health clinics and in private practice.

About my approach to treatment. I strive to provide comprehensive and accurate psychiatric evaluations for my patients (and their families when appropriate). Then, I collaborate with them to come up with workable treatment plans that address the identified symptoms and other issues, to decrease the patients’ pain, and to improve their level of functioning in daily lives.
