Kirk Uy, MD
Family Medicine Physician
Dr. Kirk Uy was exposed to medicine at an early age. He grew up in a developing country where his mother was a doctor. Seeing her succeed despite modest roots, and witnessing the positive impact she had on the lives of others, inspired him to follow in her footsteps.
Dr. Uy enrolled at De La Salle University College of Science in Manila, Philippines, where he earned a bachelor of science in biology. He went on to earn a doctor of medicine at the University of the Philippines College of Medicine, also in Manila. He completed a residency in family medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.
Dr. Uy approaches care with an attitude of partnership. He believes that doctors should listen closely and respect their patients, and that patients should approach treatment options with an open mind.
In his free time Dr. Uy enjoys hiking, swimming, and biking with his family. He has a deep appreciation for the outdoors and particularly loves to experience it from behind the lens of his camera. He also enjoys woodworking and building furniture. His favorite vice is Coca-Cola.
