Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'm a hospitalist physician working Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center.
I received my medical degree in Shanghai, China, and then completed a combined internal medicine and pediatrics residency training in Loma Linda, California. I'm currently board certified in internal medicine and pediatrics.
About my practice
I worked in the Kaiser Permanente Vandever Medical Offices for four and a half years. Through establishing trust and communciation, I was able to partner with many patients and help them manage their chronic conditions. While I enjoyed my time as a primary care physician, and enjoyed working with my fellow physicians and nurses at the Vandever Medical Offices, I realized my true passion is being a hospitalist. Taking care of ill patients in hospital, starting the initial work up, seeing them improving and recovering in a relative short period of time gives me great satisfaction. With support and understanding from my patients and colleagues, I transferred to the San Diego Medical Center to be a hospitalist, where I can continue to use my expertise and knowledge as an internist to help more patients!
How I thrive
I encourage everyone to give me feedback on the spot. Improving communication - improving care! Let me know what you think! Great communication between patient and physician, between family and care team is among the most important factors for patient care and patient's satisfaction, this is particularly important when someone is acutely ill that requires hospitalization!
