About me

Hello, and thank you for visiting my Web page. I hope you find this an interesting read and get to know me a little better at the same time. Improving your health is a goal we are constantly trying to achieve at Kaiser Permanente. Taking care of yourself, exercising, eating well, and seeing your doctor regularly may seem daunting at first, but take a minute, read about how I thrive, and see how easy it can really be.

Biography

I was born in a poor farming village in southern Taiwan to an entirely nonmedical family. My father, who had always aspired to become a physician but never had the financial means, decided to leave his farming life and family behind and migrate to the U.S. in the early '70s with the hope that he would be able to give my mother, my sister, and I a better life. After several years of being apart, we were able to reunite in the U.S., and the rest is history. I aspired to become a physician not only to make my father and mother proud, but also because of what they taught me-that I could achieve anything if I worked hard enough for it. From my father's stories of famine during his childhood to taking care of my three cancer-stricken grandparents, my sisters and I must have learned something. My older sister is a pharmacist and my younger sister an ophthalmologist. I reside in the beautiful town of Claremont. I enjoy traveling the world, playing golf, and watching UCLA basketball.

About my practice

My philosophy for improving my patients' health centers around the "mind/body" connection. Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body tries to tell you that something isn't right. For example, high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer might develop after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one. The following may be physical signs that your emotional health is out of balance: pain, weight gain/loss, fatigue, headache, hypertension, insomnia, or irritability. Poor emotional health can weaken your body's immune system, making you more likely to get colds and other infections during emotionally difficult times. Also, when you are feeling stressed, you may not take care of your health as well as you should. You may not feel like exercising, eating nutritious foods, or taking medicine that your doctor prescribes. Abuse of alcohol, tobacco, or drugs may also be a sign of poor emotional health.

How I thrive

I practice the following, and I hope you'll consider it for yourself: It's important to deal with negative feelings, but try to focus on the positive things in your life too. Some research has shown that having a positive outlook can improve your quality of life and give your health a boost. You may also need to find ways to let go of things in your life that make you feel stressed or overwhelmed. Make time for things you enjoy. To have good overall health, it's important to take care of your body by having a regular routine for eating healthful meals, getting enough sleep, and exercising. Avoid overeating and don't abuse drugs or alcohol. Using drugs just causes other problems.
