Hair Restoration Surgeon

Dr. Juk Ting, D.O.

An old story about him

The passenger had collapsed in the aisle, looking weak and pale.

 

It happened aboard an American Airlines flight from Miami to Los Angeles. The passenger, a man in his 30s with diabetes, was experiencing a hypoglycemic episode, his blood sugar dropping very low — a dangerous condition that can cause seizures, confusion, loss of consciousness, even death.

 

Dr. Juk Ting, D.O., was seated a few feet away. Identifying himself as a physician, Ting told the flight attendants to bring some orange juice and extra sugar. With Ting’s help, the passenger gradually revived.

 

Now the pilot had a decision to make: Did the passenger require hospitalization, and if so, would it be necessary to divert the flight to the nearest airport?

 

Ting calmly walked to the cockpit.

 

"I told him to just ACAR the company," he recalled, "and inform L.A. Operations to have the medics stand by to do a medical screening before letting the passenger deplane, for his safety. I also said, ‘Please inform ATC we will need speed relief from the STAR and will need priority landing. I'll be happy to speak to Medlink.’”

 

That’s when a lot of mouths dropped open.

 

Who is this guy, they wondered, this doctor speaking perfect pilot jargon, spelling out detailed medical, airport and landing procedures? (For the record, ACAR is the satellite-based Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, ATC is Air Traffic Control, STAR stands for Standard Terminal Arrival Routing and Medlink is an on-call service that provides inflight medical advice to pilots via satellite phone.)

 

He’s one of City of Hope’s newest physicians and an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Hospital Medicine. He helps take care of City of Hope’s hospitalized patients.
