Dr. Chon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chon "Dr. Manuel Chon has been practicing as a full time obstetrician and gynecologist for over 35 years. Dr. Chon was born and raised in El Salvador, Central America, where he graduated as Physician and Surgeon from the School of Medicine in the University of El Salvador and completed post graduate training in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He completed his fellowship at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, California in 1985, and has been practicing medicine locally ever since. Dr. Chon knew right away that he wanted to specialize in Obstetrics and Gynecology. What he enjoys most about his specialty is seeing the children, caring for the mother as she journeys through the pregnancy, and the overall miracle of childbirth. Dr. Chon says, "The birth of a child is truly something spectacular. Everyone knows the pain of maternity – the physical and emotional pain. Women know all this but still they bear it and continue to bring life into the world. Not just once, but even multiple times. It can only be because when they see their newborn child, all the pain is forgotten. That is the beauty of it, making it all worth it." Dr. Manuel Chon is proud to be part of the PIH Health Hospital Downey's Family Medicine Residency Program. As an attending physician to the Family Practice residents, Dr. Chon guides new doctors through their post graduate training. He has been recognized as an outstanding doctor and mentor by both his peers in the field and new resident doctors that have had the opportunity to train under him. Dr. Chon believes that it is very important to train new doctors well. He shares with each resident his approach to patient care, "Treat each patient, how you would like to be treated," exuding kindness, respect, and a commitment to providing them with the best care. Dr. Chon is married with three children, who are now professionals with families of their own. In his free time, Dr. Chon enjoys Do-It-Yourself projects at home, working on the computer, and running."

Patient Comments (2)
in Norwalk, Ca |
Dr. Chon was my wife's OB when she was pregnant with our first child. At first, I was a little reserved by the fact of a male examining my wife, but Dr. Chon was very professional (and funny) and made both my wife and I very comfortable during her entire pregnancy. We'd definitely have him as a doctor again.
