Capital Digestive Physician Jacky Chun, PA

Jacky Chun, PA


Jacky Kim Chun, PA, always wanted to pursue a career that would enable her to give back to the community in some way. Before graduating from high school, she had the opportunity to go on a mission trip with a group from her church to a village in Thailand. Seeing health challenges and disparities firsthand motivated her to go into medicine.

Today, Jacky is a certified physician assistant (PA), and in her prior role as a hospitalist PA-C, she treated many patients with acute and chronic GI issues.

Jacky earned her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. She then went on to earn a master of medical science degree in physician assistant studies from Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC. Before joining Capital Digestive Care, Jacky worked as a hospital medicine physician assistant at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, MD, where she cared for hospitalized patients.

Her patient care philosophy was shaped in part by her experience caring for her grandmother. “The amount of gratitude I have for the providers and staff who always did their best for my grandma is immeasurable,” she said. Her grandmother’s healthcare experience reminds her to always put her best foot forward with every patient encounter.

“My approach to patient care is simple: I have always treated and will continue to treat my patients like I would my own family members,” Jacky said. “It is a privilege to be a part of someone’s health journey and to be able to make a positive impact on their health and experience as a patient.”

Jacky was born in Guam and raised in Hawai’i. She and her husband moved to Maryland to be closer to family. When she is not working, Jacky enjoys going to the beach, trying new food spots, and cooking. She also enjoys the occasional night in, watching her favorite shows, Korean dramas, or movies.
