Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
What initially attracted to me to the field of medicine was witnessing my uncle's practice of traditional Chinese medicine. My uncle was well-liked and highly respected by his patients because he treated everybody like family. My dream of becoming a doctor like my uncle came true when I graduated from Sun Yat-sen University of Medical Sciences, one of the most prestigious medical schools in China. Prior to my internship and residency at UCLA, I completed many years of medical research at UCLA and the University of Toronto. The research experience was indeed a positive addition to my grounding as a physician. After three years of working in a group practice at the Pasadena Rehabilitation Institute, I joined Kaiser Permanente in Kern County in January of 2006. This has proven to be one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. I would like to complete my journey and fulfill my career as a physician here in Bakersfield.
About my practice
I believe that a physician should not only focus on the physical ailment of the people he or she treats, but also regard that member as a whole person. To facilitate the healing process, a physician must look beyond the physically visible manifestations of what ails the member. As a physiatrist, or rehabilitation physician, I also believe that the member's active involvement in his or her own care is essential. I look forward to working together with you to care for your health.
How I thrive
I firmly believe that in order to provide health care to other people, a physician should first have a personal foundation of health. Exercise is of vital importance. I’m a slow runner with no hope of winning any medal, but I run every day regardless of the weather. I also enjoy reading, watching Los Angeles Lakers basketball, and talking to my friends. In addition, I look forward to a few weeks of vacation every year to see other places in the world. This relaxes me and broadens my horizons as well.
