2007 Healthcare Hero Nominee
Dr. Jung-Ah Kim

Dr. Jung-Ah Kim of Oswego County Radiation Oncology is a team player. In fact, she requests that any recognition she gets for this feature also be given to the rest of her office. "It is not possible to provide the patient care without the help of excellent and dedicated staff at our office," says Kim.

Since establishing her clinical practice in 1999, Kim has helped county residents fight cancer. Her efforts have been appreciated. In a 2006 survey of 76 of his patients, 73 rated the care they received under Kim as "very good." Kim’s treatment doesn’t end with radiotherapy. In collaboration with her staff, Kim helps patients develop healthier lifestyles by reviewing the patient’s diet and exercise, and providing emotional support. Referrals to local health care professionals are made as appropriate.

Kim is a member of several organizations, including the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, the Society for Integrative Oncology, the Korean Catholic Community of Syracuse and the Legion of Mary.
