Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel blessed to be here, working at Kaiser Permanente with my wonderful colleagues and members—some of whom I’ve come to know well over the years. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in Saigon, South Vietnam. I came here in 1976 and was sponsored by a wonderful American family in a small town in Wisconsin. It was cold and I knew little English then, but I was glad to have a place to call home and to be reunited with my family, who’d left Vietnam before me. In this country, I single-mindedly pursued my dream of being a medical doctor and was very fortunate to achieve that dream in 1984. During medical school, I visited Southern California and I loved the climate and the people. I moved here in 1987 and have been working at Kaiser Permanente since 1990.
My specialty is general cardiology and, in my practice, I stress the value of a healthy lifestyle and preventive care as the foundation for preserving cardiovascular health. I’m also here to provide my members with high-quality evaluations and treatments, and to listen to their specific concerns. I look at my practice as a partnership with my members. They know I’m here for them, and that they can count on me to care of their cardiovascular health.
Keeping balance in my life is also very important to me, and I try to live the same lifestyle I recommend for my members. I volunteer for the Disney Half Marathon presented by Kaiser Permanente. I also enjoy my family time, and make sure I have quiet time for reading and reflection.
