Hello, and welcome to my Web page. Please call me Brandon. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente.
I grew up in Singapore. I attended medical school in Ireland, and was fortunate to receive my postgraduate general surgery residency training in North Carolina. I then completed my vascular surgery training in Loma Linda University Medical center, after which I was in private practice for four years in Kentucky. I returned to Southern California to be closer to family. I have been practicing as a vascular surgeon for the past six years. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente as a clinician, providing the best possible care for our members in the Southern California. I have wanted to be a physician since a young age when my grandmother had a stroke.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; 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.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings to the beach. I try to remain active with my wife and daughter, and I enjoy travelling to different countries, learning different cultures and appreciating history. During my free time, I love spending quality time with my family, travelling, and movies.
