Ruth Hai, MD

Born and raised in Southern California near Little Saigon, Dr. Ruth Hai moved to NYC to work in galleries and study art history and history at NYU. For a number of years she travelled and held a variety of artistic/fun jobs such as artist’s model, video rental store clerk, fruit basket maker, bartender. Her interest in holistic health (the pursuit of happiness by fulfilling emotional, spiritual, and physical health) has led her to complete a yoga teacher training, sit in multiple meditation courses, most recently to practice shiatsu massage, and ultimately to enter the field of medicine. Dr. Hai is interested in the empowerment of the patient through CAM (especially made available to the underserved and in women’s heath), and the implementation of health literacy (starting in childhood).
