Hello, and welcome to my Web page. Thank you for taking some time to learn more about my practice.
I was born in Los Angeles County. I’ve also had the chance to live in the Bay Area and Orange Country. I came to San Diego on a whim but soon fell in love with “America’s Finest City.” Meeting my wife here cemented the decision to make this my home. My great-grandfather was one of the first western-style doctors in China, so my choice of profession is probably an expression of this lineage. I chose pediatrics because of the joy children bring into our lives. Helping children mature into healthy men and women is one of the most rewarding jobs on Earth. I have a son that was born in January 2014, so if you're a new parent I know how exhausting, stressful and ultimately rewarding "parenthood" can be.
I try to make your visits with me feel like visiting a small practice. I believe in personalized medicine and doing things to prevent illness rather than just reacting to symptoms. I hope that we can be partners in helping your children reach their full potential.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. My interests and hobbies change over time. Right now, I swim and bike for exercise. I think it is really important to unplug from our overly connected lives and reunite with nature on a regular basis. I go camping every year. My guilty pleasure is still working my way through a big stack of comic books, and I don’t think that will ever change. I think the best things you can do for your health is to have a little fun every day, laugh, and do something silly. Life is short, so we might as well try to make it a little sweeter.
