About me

I was born in Saigon and moved to the U.S. with my family at the age of eight. I went to high school in California, undergraduate school at Brown University in Rhode Island, and medical school at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Maryland. I did an internal medicine internship at University of California, San Francisco Fresno, a residency in the same field at Oregon Health & Science University, and a fellowship in infectious disease at the University of California, Irvine. I’m now board certified in both internal medicine and infectious disease. When I vacationed in Hawaii during college, I fell in love with the islands. Living here is a dream come true.

About my practice

Being a doctor in infectious disease is another dream come true for me. As a child in a refugee camp in Malaysia, a young doctor saved my life when I was dying of dysentery. Since then, I’ve always hoped to be able to do for others what that young doctor did for me so long ago. Working in this field is one way I can show my gratitude to him and to others who help those in need. I also serve as a volunteer consultant in infection control for Afshar Hospital in Afghanistan with Alliance for Medical Outreach & Relief, and I help coordinate fundraising for the Syrian American Medical Society to assist refugees.

The field of infectious disease is exciting to me because it’s practiced at the forefront of science and technology, continually looking for the fine balance between the lives of humans and microbes.

To stay current in my profession, I subscribe to the New England Journal of Medicine, use online resources, attend medical conferences, participate in continuing education programs, and confer with colleagues on unusual cases. My affiliations with the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the American Medical Association also give me access to the latest information in my field.

The warm leadership and welcoming group of infectious disease physicians here made me believe that Hawaii Permanente Medical Group would be a wonderful place to work, and that has proven to be the case. I appreciate the great support staff and modern facilities and systems at Kaiser Permanente, as they allow me to focus on delivering the best care to my patients.

My philosophy of care is to approach each patient with compassion and respect. I believe in getting to know a patient not just as someone with an illness, but as someone's loved one with a role to play in the community, whether as a teacher, engineer, or chef. This helps me to better understand my patients as individuals with unique needs and goals.

How I thrive

To stay healthy, I practice yoga and swim in the ocean. I also enjoy oil painting, take pottery classes, read mystery novels, and study religion and philosophy.

Kaiser Permanente works together with participating providers to ensure all cultural competence obligations are met. We are dedicated to ensuring that services are provided in a culturally competent manner to all members, including those with limited English proficiency and reading skills; as well as those with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing accessible facilities, services, and programs for all members, visitors and individuals with disabilities. In compliance with federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on disability, Kaiser Permanente provides:

  1. accessible exam rooms and medical equipment;
  2. free auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with individuals with hearing, vision, cognitive, and/or communication-related disabilities, including qualified sign language interpreter services and informational materials in alternative formats (large print, audio tape/CDs, accessible PDFs or Microsoft Word documents, electronic texts/disks/CD-ROMS, and Braille); and
  3. access to service animals, except where the animal poses a significant health or safety risk(s) to others.

For more information about access to a specific facility or provider, or if you believe that Kaiser Permanente has failed to provide appropriate access or services or otherwise discriminated on the basis of a disability, please contact Member Services toll-free 1-800-966-5955 or TTY 711, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Saturday, 8 a.m. – noon. You may also contact or file a grievance with the Kaiser Permanente Civil Rights Coordinator in person, by mail, fax or email at: 711 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, civil-rights-coordinator@kp.org, or toll-free 1-800-966-5955, TTY 711.

The availability and use of the Kaiser Permanente grievance procedure does not prevent a person from filing a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights or the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission.

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 and 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. 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.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. If you would like more current information on a practitioner's license, call either the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs Consumer Resource Center at (808) 587-3295 or visit their website, or call the Kaiser Permanente Customer Service Center at (808) 432-5955 (Oahu) or 1-800-966-5955 (toll free, neighbor islands). For the deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired, call 1-800-966-5955 or 711 (TTY).
