Philosophy of Care

I believe in treating each patient with compassion and respect, acknowledging that everyone has their lived experience. I practice shared decision making. I enjoy working with my patients and their families to create treatment plans that not only make sense medically but that also fit into the patient's every day life.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Oh is a general pediatric nephrologist who cares for children through the full spectrum of kidney disease including those needing dialysis and kidney transplantation. She has special clinical interest in nephrotic syndrome and glomerulopathies.
