Dr. Byungyol (Bill) Chun is a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist with over thirty years of experience in medicine. He currently treats patients at his practice, Women’s Healthcare of Woburn in Woburn, MA. He has worked in communities north of Boston for over thirty years and is a leading provider of minimally-invasive robotic gynecologic surgery in New England.

A Korean-American immigrant, Dr. Chun was born at home to a teenage mother with no prior prenatal care, and he credits this humble beginning as a major part of his drive to become a doctor. His personal background combined with his years of experience as a physician, advisor, and caregiver to women have given him unique insight into the challenges women face. He is passionate about helping people live better lives through better health. Dr. Chun is the Founder of Doc & Doula, an organization dedicated to improving outcomes for all birthing people by educating women on crucial health matters. He also spearheads Doulas for Everyone, a platform that connects lower-income parents with doula services. With a large social media following, Dr. Chun strives to use all possible means of communication to help each woman become her own best health advocate.

A published author, Dr. Chun’s book, Don’t Give a Damn: How to Cope With the Fears, Challenges, and Frustrations of Daily Life, explores the philosophy that has helped him achieve his own personal life balance. He is currently working on a new book that will focus on helping people dismantle their roadblocks to happiness.

Dr. Chun is a graduate of the Ohio State University of Medicine and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
