Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'd like to take this opportunity to share with you a little bit about my practice and myself. I hope this will be the beginning of a long-lasting doctor-member relationship.
I was born in Vietnam and along with my family immigrated to the United States at the age of 13. I completed my undergraduate degree at UCLA, attended medical school in New York, and then returned to California for my training in internal medicine at the UCLA San Fernando Valley program. I've been in practice since 2002.
About my practice
One of the unique aspects of my practice at the Kaiser Permanente Euclid Medical Offices is the diversity of the member population. On any given day, I may be greeting members in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. I wish I knew a few more languages! I enjoy getting to know my members and learning more about their backgrounds and unique experiences. Of course, taking care of their medical conditions is always my top priority. Along with that, I strongly believe in preventive medicine. At Kaiser Permanente, we're aggressive in treating conditions like diabetes and hypertension in order to minimize future complications.
How I thrive
Even with a busy schedule, I always try to maintain a balanced lifestyle. I make time for exercise, reading, catching a good movie once in a while, and spending time with family and friends. I come from a big family, so at every gathering there's sure to be a lot of noise, but also a lot of fun and laughter.
