Kimberly Cheong, MD was born in Seoul, South Korea and spent most of her formative years in rainy but beautiful Tacoma, Washington. She attended the University of Washington for her undergraduate studies and Ohio State for medical school. Between college and medical school, Dr. Cheong spent a wonderful year abroad in South Korea teaching conversational English at a rural high school on a Fulbright grant. She completed her pediatric internship at UC Davis in Sacramento and residency at UCLA. She chose the field of pediatrics because she loves partnering with families and seeing their children grow up healthy and happy. She is particularly interested in newborn care and conditions relating to infectious diseases. In her spare time, Dr. Cheong enjoys reading fiction, attending LA Phil concerts, and traveling abroad.
