    Dr. Kevin Ro has had a lifelong commitment to endocrinology. He became interested in the field at an early age, influenced by close family members with endocrine disorders. During college at UCLA, he had the opportunity to work with the Division of Endocrine Surgery and Endocrinology to investigate endocrine disorders. He continued these scholarly activities throughout medical school at UCLA, residency at UC Irvine, and fellowship at UCLA. He has published his research on the thyroid and parathyroid in multiple peer review scientific journals.

    Dr. Ro’s clinical interests in endocrinology are comprehensive and include disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid, bone, diabetes, adrenal, pituitary, and more. His fellowship training at UCLA provided him the opportunity to manage patients with a wide spectrum of endocrine disorders, from the common to the rarest of the rare. At the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, a major tertiary-quaternary care center which is a clinical site of his fellowship training, Dr. Ro frequently worked with patients with complex co-morbidities in addition to endocrine disorders, including patients with prior heart, liver, pancreas, lung, kidney, and multi-organ transplants.

    Above all, Dr. Ro is a devoted and diligent physician who provides personalized and meticulous care for his patients. Dr. Ro incorporates the most recent research and guidelines to provide evidence-based, up-to-date care for every one of his patients.

    Dr. Kevin Ro was amazing!! I wish all my providers were like him. He was caring, understanding and knowledgeable. He drew pictures for me so I could better understand how the thyroid functions. He was really helpful with providing additional referrals for an ENT specialist and also was very patient with my questions. So thankful for Dr. Ro.
    My provider Dr. Ro. and his medical Nurse are the best. They take care of my medical needs, with lots of respect and warm hearts. I trust my doctor, I have referred two of my most precious family, my father and my mother-in-law. I feel very blessed to have these two people looking out for my health. May God Bless them Both. I wish he was my doctor for all my medical needs, like when I get sick, or get hurt, but he is working on my A1C, my cholesterol, watching for heart disease; and we are see improvement. I am one luck lady.
    *Dr. Ro was attentive, listened to my questions and gave answers that I could understand. Grated *Dr. Ro at an 8 because it was my first visit with *Dr. Ro.
    Polite, friendly, very knowledgeable. Also, patient and clearly explained answers to my questions.
