About me

I'm a Bay Area native who was born and raised in San Francisco. For 19 years, I've been practicing primary care and continue to find great joy in the art and science of medicine.  

I see myself as an advocate and partner in health and truly value listening to patients. My role as a physician is to not only diagnose and treat illness but to help patients understand their medical conditions and navigate the complexity of decision-making. 

Over the course of my career, I have found my greatest passion is working with seniors. I’ve worked in major health systems and taught medical students and residents from Touro, Stanford, and UCSF.

What their patients are saying:
“Dr. Yun is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had. She conducted a very thorough examination and ordered a test right away. She’s very knowledgeable and has great communication skills. I trust her with my health care completely. “
“Dr. Yun performed the visit in my mom's room which made it a more relaxing and personal visit. Dr. Yun spent a lot of time and was thorough.”
"Dr Yun is terrific — she is thorough, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. I am a physician and my high expectations have been met. My mother does not like to leave The Forum so the convenience and accessibility is essential and appreciated."
