About

Bio

In a time when the field of medicine is especially fragmented, having your own personal doctor who knows and follows your health is invaluable. I believe in treating the whole patient — to me that means helping to coordinate care at every level. I can provide care for a wide range of acute and chronic issues, direct you toward specialist care you may need, interpret test results and studies, and even just listen to your concerns, in English or Chinese. Helping others is important to me, whether it's related to medical care or everyday life. I believe in daily exercise, regular volunteer work, and finding peace and happiness. Life is too short to be unhappy!

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
