About me

I had an interest in medicine from a young age because my family was positively affected by physicians. My younger sister was born with a congenital heart disease that was very debilitating. She was frequently ill, fussy and demanded a lot of attention from my parents. There were few treatment options in my native country of Laos and my sister would not have survived. After we immigrated to America, she immediately received cardiac surgery. Doctors not only saved her life, but they saved our family. Even as a young child, I felt the impact physicians had on my family, and I knew I wanted to do the same for other families.

About my practice

I am a pediatric hospitalist and I care for newborns and children admitted to the hospital through age 17. I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child. I see myself as part of a child's "village" when caring for my patient. I value the opinions of his/her parents and other family members when making my medical decisions. I do my best to provide options in my medical plan because there is usually more than one right answer, and I allow families to help decide what is best for their child. I do my best to care for each patient as I would care for my own children or family member.

How I thrive

My children help me keep things in perspective. I have a young daughter and son. No matter how stressed I am and no matter how bad my day was, the thought of coming home to see my kids makes me smile.  They make me realize what's really important in life.

Information in this online directory is updated periodically and applies to commercial plans underwritten by Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Colorado. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. To verify whether a provider accepts Kaiser Permanente plans, contact the provider directly. Current provider information is available at kp.org/locations. This information is updated within 72 business hours of receipt from providers. Kaiser Permanente of Colorado attempts to ensure the online directory contains up-to-date information. However, providers are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website. The printed directory is current as of the date of publication. Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or the practitioner's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. An authorization or referral may be required to access some providers in this directory. If you have questions, contact Member Services.

Referrals to affiliated/contracted physicians/providers in Denver/Boulder

Affiliated/contracted physicians/providers are not part of the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG). They are physicians/providers who have a contract with the CPMG.

If your CPMG physician decides that you require covered services not available internally from CPMG, he or she will refer you to an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.

You must have a written referral to the affiliated/contracted physician/provider in order for Kaiser Permanente Colorado to cover the services. A referral is a written authorization from Kaiser Permanente for you to receive a covered service from an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.
