About me

Welcome to my Web page! Choosing a personal physician is a very important decision, and I know it can also be challenging. I’m glad to have this opportunity to tell you a little about myself and, hopefully, make that decision easier.

Biography

I’m originally from a distant corner of the globe—Vietnam. I completed high school in a French school, and then completed my medical training at Saigon University in 1975—the year South Vietnam fell to the communist North. Because of the suppressive political regime, my wife and I escaped by boat in 1979. We spent the next six months in a refugee camp on an island in the South China Sea. We relocated in Brussels Belgium for one year, where I worked as a night nurse to earn my living. Finally, I was approved to come to the United States. Once in the United States, I was able to reconnect with a visiting professor from the Mayo Clinic, who had taught in Vietnam during the summers of 1972 and 1973. At the end of a three-month visiting clerkship, I was accepted to the internal medicine residency program at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I graduated in 1984. Afterwards, I joined Kaiser Permanente in Fontana and have been here ever since.

About my practice

I’m an internist, which means I care for adult members older than age 18. I do inpatient and outpatient care, but I enjoy the outpatient clinic most because of the long-term relationships I have with my members and their families. I’ve been seeing some of them for more than 30 years! I’m quite straightforward when dealing with medical issues—you can expect "plain English" when discussing your problems with me. My guiding principle in my daily practice is to take your interests as the focus of my actions.

How I thrive

Kaiser Permanente offers me a flexible call schedule. I’m quite grateful for that, because it allows me to take the time I need to unwind, deal with stress, and stay healthy. I enjoy my family, travel, reading, classical music, and wine. My passion, however, is tennis—it’s my escape from all the stress of life and work. It also offers me a pleasant mode of exercise. I strongly believe in the concept of "a healthy mind in a healthy body," and I try to communicate that clearly to all my members. For the past three years, I’ve had the gratifying opportunity to volunteer in a community clinic for the poor, which I plan to keep doing into my retirement.
