About Ted Hak, MD 

Ted J. Hak, MD, has had a long relationship with the city of Santa Monica. He has lived and practiced medicine in Santa Monica since 1980.   

After serving as the Medical Director of an urgent care center for two years, Dr. Hak co-founded Santa Monica Family Physicians in 1985. The group maintained offices in Santa Monica for over 25 years before becoming affiliated with the UCLA Medical Center. Many members of the practice reunited again as Santa Monica Family Physicians in 2017, when they joined the Providence Medical Institute and the Saint John’s Health Center. Dr. Hak’s focus is on wellness for both his patients and himself, and he has not missed a day of work due to illness for over two decades.   

Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, Dr. Hak MD completed his medical training at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He interned at Providence St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica and completed his residency at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica.  

When not working with his patients, Dr. Hak maintains an active lifestyle enjoying both water skiing and snow skiing, as well as golfing. His wife is on a ski patrol in Big Bear, so they spend many winter weekends in the mountains. He always looks forward to spending time with his family members, who all reside in the Santa Monica area.  

Dr. Hak is the best physician I have ever had in my 72 years. Beyond his outstanding technical skills and knowledge, he has extraordinary people/social skills. Hold on to him – he is a gem.

Dr T Hak is an extremely capable and highly qualified medical professional... He is very kind and helpful. He is friendly and is willing to take the time to answer questions and he is understanding of my personal issues outside of the doctor office. I hold Dr Hak in high esteem. I am very pleased with our relationship.

My experience has been pleasant every time I have visited Dr. Hak's offfice. His staff is professional and helpful. The only thing I would say is that when I receive my results is that they call to explain what they mean. Other than being "normal" results, I'd like to know what each of the tests mean in laymen terms. Thank you.
