Yes, my office is accepting new patients. May require referral.
Originally from Taiwan, my family immigrated to the U.S. when I was 11. I grew up in Cleveland with a mixture of traditional Chinese and typical Midwestern values. I am bilingual in Mandarin Chinese, which I speak with my parents. I became a physician because I love helping people. Neonatology is a pediatric specialty where I can make a difference in someone’s life. After completing medical training in Florida, I moved to Denver to be closer to family and to enjoy all the beautiful outdoor activities.
Working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Saint Joseph Hospital and Good Samaritan Medical Center can get emotional at times, especially when caring for a sick, premature infant. Luckily, these tiny patients are stronger than us! My favorite thing is when I get to discharge a baby home with his or her parents. I also love seeing previous patients return for a visit when they are older. It gives us all hope that good outcomes are possible, despite the initial struggles. I believe in caring for the whole patient. I take the time to learn about my patients and their families, so we can get them where they need to be to thrive. I strive to do what is best and what makes sense for each patient, without superfluous care or minimization of their care. I work with a strong team of physicians and other care providers to coordinate my patients’ care.
I recharge by spending time with my family and friends. Exercising two to three times a week also helps me keep a good balance in life. My favorite pastime is traveling abroad with my husband to explore different cultures, see interesting and historic sites, and try new cuisines.
