About Me

Welcome to my Web page. It is a pleasure for me to work in Southern California at Kaiser Permanente, where serving our members has the highest priority. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.

Biography

I was born in an ancient city, Xi'an, in China, best known for its terracotta horse and soldier figures, and being the first capital of the country 2000 years ago. I finished medical school in my hometown and then had the opportunity of coming to UCLA to finish my PhD work in physiology. I felt very fortunate to further finish my post-graduate training in medicine, cardiology, and cardiac electrophysiology at UCLA and Cedars-Sinai Medical Centers. After my fellowships, I worked at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center as an assistant professor of medicine before joining the Southern California Permanente Medical Group as a staff cardiac Electrophysiologist. Currently I also serve as an associate professor of medicine at the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. I enjoy my professional work of taking care of my patients and teaching medical students, residents and fellows. I also enjoy the sun and different outdoor activities, because I believe that life resides in motion.

About my practice

Cardiac electrophysiology is a highly specialized medical field, but I believe that it can be practiced in a way that is easy for my patients to understand. I spend time to listen to our members about their problems and make sure they understand their conditions and the options available to help them. As the field of cardiac electrophysiology continues to evolve, more arrhythmias (abnormal heart beats) that our patients experience may be cured using modern technology by a cardiac Electrophysiologist.

How I thrive

I believe in total health and think that it includes both physical and mental fitness. I enjoy playing basketball, table tennis, swimming, and field trips with my kids and wife. I also enjoy classical music, reading, and discussions with my colleagues about medicine, science, and our society
