Personal Statement

I am a general internist who is committed to building meaningful relationships with my patients and helping them navigate through the complex health care system. I am particularly interested in obesity medicine as it relates to chronic medical problems, and am board certified in American Board of Obesity Medicine. As I speak Korean and Spanish, I hope to build a diverse patient panel and communicate effectively with patients from all backgrounds.


Dr. Deborah Fung was born in South Korea and grew up in Queens, New York. She majored in Biochemistry and studied Spanish at New York University, and earned her medical degree from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine in Brooklyn. She completed residency training in Internal Medicine/Primary Care at Weill Cornell - New York Presbyterian. Dr. Fung is board certified in American Board of Internal Medicine and has a specialty certification in American Board of Obesity Medicine. In her free time, she likes to go hiking upstate, bouldering, and exploring her Brooklyn neighborhood with her husband and dog.
