Hello. My name is Jonathan Ahn, and I am the Medical Director and Pediatrician at Seed. I was born in the U.S. but lived in Korea for many years. It was difficult but exciting to grow up in two different cultures. Thanks to my experiences I enjoy caring for children from many different cultural backgrounds. I already have patients from Congo, Turkmenistan, Syria, Mongolia, Guatemala, Romania, Bulgaria, and Japan. The intersection of culture, family, and healing never fails to fascinate me.
I believe that a healthy family is essential to a thriving child. I have three young children of my own, and my wife and I are enjoying our journey as parents. I enjoy cooking, working on anything creative with the kids, and watching Chicago Bulls basketball. I also have a particular interest in the role of design in health and healthcare systems
It is important to be an informed consumer in today’s healthcare environment. Our prices are competitive with the prices you will find on the Healthcare Bluebook Website which is a free consumer guide to help you determine fair prices.
SELF-PAY MENU: Self-pay means that whether you have insurance or not that you choose to pay by cash, check, or credit card at the time of service. Thus your insurance company does not receive a bill. You may want to consider a self-pay option if your insurance has a high-deductible. *Charges are based on the length and complexity of your visit, which is up to the physician’s discretion. In-office lab testing or treatments are not included in the price.
Well Child Visits
Preventative care is a crucial part of your child’s health. Important topics for discussion will include, but not limited to, growth, developmental milestones, eating habits, friendships, discipline, family-time, school progress, and sleep.
