 A Personal Note from Dr. Hwang   

I am originally from Northern California but, more recently, I attended medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Since then I have been enjoying the warm weather, bbq, and other charms of the South. Moving to Galveston and becoming part of the community here is
the next exciting chapter in my journey.

What drew me to UTMB's Family Medicine Program was the strength of its core curriculum and its emphasis on personal and professional development. The added training in Integrative Medicine and Behavioral Medicine are merely two examples of the many ways in which UTMB is shaping me into the best physician I can possibly be.

As a Family Medicine physician, my goal is to maintain the health of my patients and, ideally, to prevent disease from taking hold in the first place. I strive to view the patient as a whole in order to set health goals that are achievable and truly capable of improving one's quality of life.
