Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am glad that you have entrusted Kaiser Permanente with your health and hope that I can help you with all your needs to maintain excellent digestive health. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
Born in Taiwan, I moved with my family to California at age ten. After completing high school in Northern California, I ventured to New England for my undergraduate studies and earned my MD at Brown University. After internal medicine residency in Chicago, I moved to Los Angeles for my gastroenterology training. I completed a clinical gastroenterology fellowship and concomitantly earned a PhD in molecular biology, studying intestinal growth and repair at UCLA. After training, I remained at UCLA as faculty for five years where I practiced gastroenterology with a focus on inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and continued my research prior to joining Kaiser Permanente.
I strongly believe in a shared approach to health care decision-making. I will provide you as much information as I can, and make suggestions about what I think will be the most sensible course of action for you so that you can make an informed choice that is best for you.
My family life is my major priority. When I am not working, I have my hands full being a father of three and try to spend as much time as possible with them. My wife, my children and I all enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures.
