Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome! I’m glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you and share other information about myself. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in Taiwan, a beautiful island off the coast of China. My grandfather was a physician who served in the poor rural areas of Taiwan. His dedication to medicine inspired me to become a physician. I’ve lived in Southern California for most of my life, except when I went to college at UC Berkeley. When I was in medical school at USC, I decided to enter the field of kidney diseases because of the enthusiastic mentors I encountered, the many interesting diseases I learned about, and the wonderful patients I treated.
I feel honored to have members entrust me with their care. I feel that a good member-doctor relationship is an important part of providing quality medical care. It’s a privilege for me to help members understand their concerns, have them involved in their care, answer their questions, and provide the appropriate evaluations.
I strive to achieve a balanced life. I enjoy my work life, but my family life is my priority. I enjoy various activities with my young son, including playing duets on the piano with him. My hobbies and health activities involve gardening and exercising daily.
