Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page! I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice and myself. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this is a first step in that direction.
I am of Chinese descent, was born in the Philippines, and have lived most of my life in Southern California. After my undergraduate studies at UC Irvine, I earned a master's degree in public health at Loma Linda University before I ventured towards a medical career. Since then, I have experienced living in the West Indies, New York, and Northern California before settling in Bakersfield.
Being entrusted with a patient’s health is a special privilege. My interest in medicine stems from a deep and genuine interest in peoples well-being. My reward is simple: It feels good to help others. I dedicate myself to being your partner and advocate in health. This means guiding you through healthy living and preventive care as well as caring for and comforting you when you are ill. In turn, I hope to foster a sense of empowerment in you about your own health, so you can reach your optimal potential.
Keeping balance in my life is important to me. My family life is my joy. I also enjoy traveling, cooking, and music.
