Meet Dr. Kim

Category: Events, News

Hello!

My name is Dr. Tiffany Kim and I am so excited that Dr. Deborah Russell has entrusted me with her practice and patients!  It is such a privilege.

I have known Dr. Russell for over 15 years and was fortunate enough to have her teach me while I was in my residency, here in Saginaw, from 2010-2014.

I moved to Saginaw in 2007 with my husband, Ryan, to continue our medical training.  We chose to stay here and make it our forever home. We are raising our 3 young children here and we love it.  I am passionate about women’s health and am so excited for this opportunity to provide individualized care to women, of all ages, in the Saginaw area.

 

Dr. Kim

Thank you,

Tiffany Kim, MD
