Where I practice
Hello, my name is Dr. Kathy Lao. Welcome to my Web page! I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you more about my work as a family physician at Kaiser Permanente Victorville.
I was born and raised in Stockton, California, and attended UC Berkeley, where I majored in biology. I then received a medical degree from Touro University in Nevada and completed training in family medicine at the University of Las Vegas School of Medicine.
About my practice
I became interested in medicine at a young age while experiencing the health inequalities that my refugee parents faced. As a result, I aim to be a compassionate physician who is strongly committed to helping members overcome barriers and achieving quality healthcare.
How I thrive
As your family physician, I will work in partnership with you to achieve your healthcare goals. I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. I use evidence-based medicine and the resources around me to maximize the quality of your care.I have an incredibly supportive husband and am a new mother to a son who is always keeping me on my toes! I enjoy spending time with my family by taking walks in the park, trying new foods, and exploring the wonderful things Southern California has to offer. I am also a fan of bakeries, science fiction novels, and lots of coffee.
