About Me

Greetings, and welcome to my Web page. I’d like to introduce myself to you and tell you more about my practice.


I was born in Vietnam and immigrated to the United States in 1975. A wonderful, loving local resident adopted my family. I now consider her my third grandmother! Coincidentally, she was also a Kaiser Permanente member. I grew up near sunny Huntington Beach, graduated from UC Irvine, and then went to Harvard Medical School. After that, the sunny weather beckoned to me, so I came back to California to complete my internal medicine residency and my gastroenterology and hepatology fellowship at UCLA.

About my practice

I started my practice at Kaiser Permanente in 2005. I specialize in the field of gastroenterology. I have a special interest in liver disease, including viral hepatitis, fatty liver disease, and liver transplant management. I joined Kaiser Permanente because I truly believe in this organization’s philosophy of member care. The best interests of members like you are foremost in directing my practice. I enjoy working as part of a team—the personal camaraderie among the staff and my fellow physicians is very rewarding. I incorporate the latest technology and medical advances in my effort to provide high-quality care for each member.

How I thrive

I believe that in order to serve our members, I must also lead a well-balanced life. To that end, when I'm not at work, I especially enjoy spending time with my family as well as reading novels.
