Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente where I provide multilingual, multicultural patient care to members in English, Spanish, or even Vietnamese.
I was born in Big Rapids, Michigan. One of my sisters is a pharmacist, the other a dentist, my sister-in-law is an optometrist, and my best friend is a podiatrist. As for my hobbies...well, medicine and studying foreign languages are my two biggest hobbies. I speak fluent Spanish, Vietnamese, and, of course, English.
About my practice
My team at the Kaiser Permanente Long Beach Medical Offices consists of several physicians (all of whom I have great faith in), several medical assistants, a handful of licensed vocational nurses, and a few registered nurses. There are also a number of specialists (Ob/Gyn and Podiatry) who work in the building, as well as a few administrators. We are a tightly knit group.
I am a provider that is knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of members with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
How I thrive
As you can probably imagine, being a family physician can be very stressful and busy. To stay well, my fellow colleagues and I support one another. I also try to practice what I preach and work out very regularly, as well as eat a healthy diet.
