About me

Welcome! I’m excited that you’re taking advantage of all the wonderful online health resources provided to you by Kaiser Permanente. I believe that getting active in your own health care will help me optimize your health. I look forward to meeting you.

Biography

I’m a first-generation Chinese American who immigrated to Los Angeles with my family at an early age. Essentially a native Angeleno, what I enjoy most about living in Los Angeles is the amazing diversity that enriches my life. The persistently pleasant weather in Southern California is also hard to beat. My decision to become a physician stemmed from my fascination with science and a spiritually rooted desire to serve my fellow human beings

About my practice

I am board-certified in three specialties—family medicine, geriatric medicine, and hospice and palliative medicine. From a primary care perspective, my philosophy is that disease is best treated through prevention and healthy living. I view my members as partners—I help you achieve greater health through your active participation. Currently, most of my clinical work involves caring for elderly persons, and people of all ages who are facing life-limiting illnesses. All of us will reach a point in our lives when maintaining function and living a personally acceptable quality of life is more difficult. During these difficult times, it’s my hope that I can offer my expertise, care, and support to help people face their last days. I’m also involved in training medical students, residents, and fellows as they become the next generation of physicians. My professional interests include healthy aging, member-centered and shared decision-making, and caring for the LGBT community. We live in a fast-paced and demanding society.

How I thrive

I strongly believe in harmony, peace, and service. I am passionate about family and friends, justice, and self-awareness. Life is about balance, and I find my balance by spending time with people I love, enjoying different kinds of food, listening to music, watching movies, and exercising. Sometimes, it’s easy to get swept up in the pace of life and forget to live. I try to stay well by laughing, eating healthfully, staying physically active, stimulating my mind, and nourishing my spirit. I believe true strength means being able to ask for help when you need it. Staying connected to my friends and family helps me remember why I do what I do.
