I'd like to personally welcome you to my Web Page! I hope to share some information about my medical practice in North San Diego. I feel it's important for you to choose a physician who will be sensitive and serve your needs.
My parents are physicians of Chinese-Spanish-Filipino descent. From the beginning, it was well ingrained in their children that the satisfaction of helping others was the best reward anyone can receive. I feel fortunate that my practice allows me to accomplish this.
I specialize in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. I practice more than just medication management because I find it fulfilling to bring out the best potential in children who have had rough beginnings. I help them deal with school issues, gain confidence in their teenage years, and eventually take ownership of their adult life as best they can. I feel honored to be a part of this journey. I also provide medication treatment, if needed, for members who are pregnant and/or lactating and dealing with post partum mood issues.
Maintaining a work-life balance is important to me. I enjoy playing tennis, scuba diving, snorkeling, biking, hiking, exploring uninhabited islands, listening to music, and watching good movies. My family is a top priority for me, and we do great things together on vacations and medical missions. I'm also starting to learn to play golf!
