Se Young Um MD, FAAP
“I chose pediatrics because it gives me great joy. I consider it is privilege to be made a part od your lives and tak part in making important decisions regarding your child's health. Also, when I was in medical school, everyone said, "Oh,yeah. She is going to be a pediatrician." I am easygoing and my philosophy is easygoing. I want you to feel comfortable with sharing your concerns with me and I will do my best to work with you."
