Welcome to my Web page, and if you are new, welcome to the Kaiser Permanente family. This is a great opportunity for me to personally share with you a little about me as a person and as your physician. It will also give me a chance to share with you a little bit about my practice style.
I was born and raised in the South Bay area, and I feel very fortunate to be able to return home to practice in the place I grew up. After attending UCLA for medical school, I spent my residency years training at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center with some of the best family medicine doctors in the country. I am Chinese-American and thanks to my parents, I can still speak some Mandarin. I also learned Spanish in high school and medical school.
I am proud of the emphasis that Kaiser Permanente places on research, and I strive to base my decisions and care on the most up-to-date medical knowledge available. However, I also understand that each individual is unique and there will be times when we will need to make adjustments to conventional therapy for your individual needs.
Life is about balance and making adjustments to the challenges that come our way. One way that I try to manage the stresses of daily life is to run regularly. I have not always been a runner and, in fact, I used to be one of the worst runners in my class. After my wife inspired me to join her in running my first half marathon a number of years ago, I have been hooked on running and have done several races of varying lengths. Regular exercise has now become a vital part of my physical and emotional health.
