About me

I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.

Biography

I’m originally from the East Coast near Philadelphia, but my family is from Taiwan. For undergraduate and medical school, I spent some time in the Midwest at the University of Michigan—go Blue! However, the long winters and cold weather made me yearn to come out to California for some year-round sunshine. My medical residency was at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, and my fellowship in gastroenterology with a focus on hepatology (liver disease) was at UC San Francisco. I fell in love with Southern California and have not gone back to the cold weather since!

About my practice

The gastrointestinal (GI) service at Kaiser Permanente Orange County is made up of a wonderful team of physicians, nurse practitioners, team leaders, and medical assistants, all standing behind our members and helping them with different aspects of care related to GI and liver disease. Our liver program here in Orange County uses a team approach to chronic liver disease and is conducted by physician and nurse liver specialists. My personal clinical and research interests are in liver disease and viral hepatitis (hepatitis B and C). Importantly, we are here to provide an individualized, holistic approach to treating those with GI and liver disease.

How I thrive

Living well, for me, involves the balance of work, play, and community. I take time out of my busy schedule to go to the gym a few times per week. I also enjoy traveling around the world and doing amateur photography, as well as participating in community service for the Asian Health Foundation—an organization devoted primarily to hepatitis B treatment and prevention. I also work closely with UC Irvine Medical Center as a volunteer assistant clinical professor helping to teach and train UC Irvine fellows. I believe that balance in life is key and walking the middle path is important for maintaining good physical, mental, and spiritual health. I also spend time keeping up with my little daughter.
