Chris Yun, MD
I'm a board-certified pediatrician with over 6-years of experience caring for children from newborns to adolescents. Prior to moving to New York, I trained and worked in San Francisco and Oakland in pediatric office, urgent care, and hospital-based settings. I also (somewhat randomly) earned an MFA in creative writing! In addition to caring for children, I love meeting parents — especially new parents — and providing a place for them to voice their concerns, frustrations, and anxieties.
Approach to patient care
My goals are to deliver the highest quality care to my patients and support parents through every stage of development. I try to listen as much as I can without interrupting. I also like to ask the child what they think! I recognize that parenting does not always conform to the textbooks or parenting blogs and so I always try to meet families where they're at.
Thoughtful, diligent, considerate.
Newborns, ADHD, anxiety, sleep issues, rashes.
Writing, music, sci-fi.
