Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice as a specialist in perioperative medicine. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to provide the best possible perioperative care for you.
I was born in the beautiful People's Republic of China, in an ancient city called Luoyang. After graduate and medical school, I decided to come to the United States for clinical research and practice. I did a lot of research at the University of Washington, University of Maryland, National Institute of Drug Abuse, UC Irvine, and Kaiser Permanente. During my residency in University of Maryland, I visited Southern California and fell in love with the area and decided to live and work here after graduation.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; it is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their perioperative care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in the philosophy of total health and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings to Laker games and I volunteer my time and effort in the Asian Pacific community. I love to exercise and hike regularly along the coast and nearby mountains. When I do travel, I go abroad often.
