About

Dr. Susie Fong is a sleep medicine physician who practices in Encino, and Beverly Hills. She is board certified in Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine. She has an interest in treating the full spectrum of sleep disorders including sleep-related breathing disorders, central disorders of hypersomnolence, circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders, and sleep-related movement disorders.

Dr. Fong received her medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. She completed her Internal Medicine residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and a Sleep Medicine fellowship at UCLA. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Fong's interest in sleep developed during her clinical training in Obstetrics and Gynecology when her patients—especially those pregnant or in perimenopause—frequently had sleep difficulties. She aims to give patient-centered care to address sleep-related concerns with the goal of improving health and quality of life.

Dr. Fong grew up in the Bay Area of northern California and enjoys serving the culturally diverse population in Los Angeles. When she is not in the office, you may find her doing yoga, behind her camera or collecting stamps in her passport.
