Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I enjoy working at Kaiser Permanente among my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was originally born in Vietnam but along with my family moved to the United States at age five. Since that time, I have been a Southern Californian. Even when I was a young child I knew I wanted to be a physician, in part because I knew I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people's lives.
About my practice
Practicing medicine offers opportunities to connect with and help people in meaningful ways. To help my patients I utilize medical skills and knowledge but also listen and try to respond to what they really need. It is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit and try to live it myself every day. My family life is my highest priority. I enjoy family outings, summer camping trips, and quiet family time at home.
