Special Interests

As a primary care physician, I value the continuity in patient care. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to build a long-lasting relationship with my patients, and to be in a position to make a positive difference in their lives. I appreciate the difference my patients have made in my life. It is a gratifying and rewarding experience to get to know so many people, to hear their amazing stories, and to be part of their life journey.

Medicine is an ever-changing science. This is a hopeful and exciting time in the field of medicine with cutting-edge techniques, innovative medications and improved outcomes. I have a strong background combining clinical practice, medical research and biostatistics. With my unique background, I strive to keep myself up to date on the latest development in medicine so that I can better serve our patients' needs.

I believe in a team approach and consider myself part of a team with my patients. I love to take the time to listen to my patients’ needs and concerns, to help them fully understand their medical condition and to enable them to make informed decisions that work the best for them. Together as a team, we will ensure our patients receive the best care they deserve.

Dr. Ren is a thoughtful and very mindful clinician and I am thrilled to have her as my doctor. She listens to my concerns and is thorough. She had only seen me once, but remembered details that I shared with her...and followed up to see how I was doing. I would strongly recommend her to others.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
She always discusses a new medication and the side effects, plus always sends me home with all the information that she possibly can.

This newly assigned (PCP) has done the best possible during our first confrontation to seek continued medical care from this facility.

This was a "Yearly physical appt". A "well baby check" as it were. I believe that Fr. REn and I will be able to work together should I become ill. She seems able to accept choices, and I clearly respect her knowledge.

Knowing I had to change medical provider due to new insurance coverage, I was very worried and upset, but Virginia Mason and Dr. Ren have been a great pick.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Ren. She was caring and thorough in my exam, going through each of the medication and problems I've had. She showed care and concerns with all the issues we discussed. I am glad I chose her as my primary doc.

In a bit of hurry. Not too focused on conversation regarding any alternative health recommendations.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Reason for going was for a physical. I expected blood draws or urine samples to be taken like I had at my last physical. Because I'm over 65 most of this physical was questions like do I have loose rugs; hand rails in the bathroom or do I have to grab things to help me stand. None of this tells me about my physical well being. My high blood pressure was no surprise I've been treated before for it. The Doctor and assistant were great but this is the worst physical I have ever had.

Have to disclose that I have some problem understanding foreign accent. But, I'm do not feel bashful asking for it to be repeated.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
I have severe back pain upper middle for over a month and none of the prescriptions she has ordered didn't work. I almost went to ER the pain was so severe one of my relatives gave me prescriptions medication of a muscle relaxer & anti inflammatory pills & the pain & swelling went away for the first time I finally was out of pain.

She listened to my concerns. Gave me her input. Gave me print out on a drug info. Brought up on screen facts about taking statin drugs. She said "Let's see how your blood work comes back." Well, my blood work ended up being excellent. YEA.
