Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Male
I’m a resident physician collaborating with an attending physician. I am available for same day appointments. I am accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
I was born in Vietnam, though shortly thereafter, my family escaped to Washington State when I was a year old. We later moved to Hawaii, because the weather is similar to Vietnam. My parents are my heroes. They sacrificed and endured so much for my siblings and me. Growing up, we didn’t have health insurance, and as a result, I learned how important it is to stay healthy. This influenced my decision to pursue medicine, so I can help my patients live a better life.
I chose to pursue a career in internal medicine, because it’s the foundation for all medical specialties. I believe in a patient-centered, team-based philosophy of care. A person's health should be his or her priority, and the patient should be the coach or decision-maker of the medical team. As a doctor, I’m there to provide guidance and the most up-to-date information for my patients to make their decisions. I focus on listening to my patients so I can better understand their health challenges and form stronger bonds with them. I’m a member of the American College of Physicians, and I’ve given presentations at the Pacific Global Health Conference and the Intercultural Cancer Council Hawaii-Pacific Regional Symposium. To keep up with the most recent medical research, I read UpToDate, the New England Journal of Medicine, and the Journal of the American Medical Association. Kaiser Permanente is an excellent institution, taking great effort to provide high-quality care for patients, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this team.
I would like to volunteer in the community and use my internal medicine experience for medical missions in areas of need. I enjoy going to the gym and staying active. I also enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring our beautiful islands.
