About me

Hello and thanks for visiting my Web page. My last name can be difficult to say, but it is phonetically pronounced “chew-ong.”  Some patients and colleagues just call me Dr. Jesse.

Biography

I was born in Taiwan, but came to the United States when I was only six.  I have wanted to be a doctor ever since I was eight, and was influenced by my mother who was a nurse and my father who was a pharmacist.  I have lived in Southern California most of my life since coming to the United States, but I went up north for college at UC Davis and then moved to Boston for medical school at Tufts University for a dual-degree program for my MD and Master of Public Health degrees.  I returned to California after that, and trained at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center.

About my practice

I am a strong proponent of knowledge, education, and prevention.  That is why I am where I am today.  I earned my Master of Public Health degree thinking it would make me a better physician, with an understanding of population health and prevention.  I also became a nephrologist because everything seems to affect the kidneys, which forces me to continually learn and retain my medical knowledge about every organ system.  After being in private practice for over eight years, I came to Kaiser Permanente because I felt it gave me a better work-life balance. This allowed me to be a more effective physician, spending more time working together with my patients to improve their health, as well as encouraging them to be more proactive.

How I thrive

I was so busy running my private practice that I found little time for personal life.  I used to be a distance runner and swimmer and since starting my practice, I was always so stressed and sleep deprived that I gained weight and my health deteriorated.  Although I knew how to improve health and advise patients, I could not lead by example given all the obligations.  Work life also worsens when you don't focus on your private life and that is why I joined Kaiser Permanente to allow myself more balance.  It gave me more time to focus on my health and hobbies.  I am now doing annual triathlon relays with my siblings and feeling great which also improves my work performance.
