Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am very happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I am a primary care physician in internal medicine. I feel very fortunate and proud to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my fabulous colleagues, fantastic medical team, and wonderful patients. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in Myanmar and moved to Taiwan after graduating from high school. I finished medical school in Taipei and practiced medicine in Taiwan until 2003 when my wife and I decided to move to the United States. I completed my residency training in internal medicine in New York. My wife and I, together with our three kids, moved to California where we all fell in love with the sunny weather, and made Southern California our home for good. I was raised in a big family and am happy to now have a growing family of my own.
About my practice
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. Being a doctor allows peoples to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; it is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I am very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I like travelling with my family and enjoy photography as well. I play badminton on the weekends and walk two miles daily during the week with my wife. I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority.
