About

Bio

I am an allergist in the South San Francisco Bay Area, California. I have been treating allergy, asthma and immune deficiency patients for over 10 years. I see about 50% adult and 50% children patients. I am fluent in both English and Chinese. I graduated from University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. I was trained in Internal Medicine and Allergy and Asthma at Yale Univ., UC Davis, Stanford Univ., and UCSF. I am currently a Fellow of both the AAAAI and ACAAI. I am also the Co-President of the American Medical Women's Association, South Bay Chapter. What I love about allergy and asthma is that sometimes I see the most interesting cases that keep me investigating. Since allergy can affect virtually any body systems, I have to learn about every single organ system of the body. What I also love about it is that when we identify the cause of someone's allergy, a lot of times, I can give my patients treatments to make them so much better. And they love it! I don't always have the answer, but I love to form the partnership with my patients on their journey to seek better health. Check out our practice's website for more information.
