Where I practice
I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in Taiwan and came to the United States when I was 15. I finished my undergraduate and medical training at Saint Louis University before I came to sunny Southern California. I completed my residency and fellowship training at Loma Linda University and an additional year of heart failure fellowship at the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. I've always wanted to be in a profession where I can help people, especially after suffering from a severe illness as a child. I became a cardiologist because I believe that the heart is the most essential and complex organ in the body. I enjoy working with my patients to help make their hearts healthier and stronger.
About my practice
I take care of members with heart problems, including coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, and rhythm disturbances. I also enjoy echocardiography, treating heart failure, nuclear cardiology, and pacemaker implantation. Our cardiology group works as a team to provide high-quality care for members.
How I thrive
I believe in maintaining balance between my personal life and career. When away from work, I enjoy spending most of my time with my wife and children. I also enjoy playing the piano and sports such as tennis and golf, and deep sea fishing whenever I have time.
