Dr. Kang was initially drawn to Urology by the patients and urologists she met while in medical school. She enjoyed the diversity of procedures and the remarkable impact a urologist can make in their patient’s outcomes and quality of life. As a former engineer, Dr. Kang appreciated how urologists are eager to adapt to technology, medical research, and innovation, demonstrating their commitment to providing the best patient care possible.
Dr. Kang enjoys working to improve the lives of their patients and striving to provide them with the best care for all benign and malignant urologic conditions. Dr. Kang completed her residency at the University of Chicago, which is known for excellence in robotic surgery.
Outside of work, Dr. Kang likes running, traveling, hiking, exploring Portland, and spending time with friends and family.
