Welcome to my Web page. My purpose is to help people live their greatest life possible through my teaching, coaching, and care.
My life has been a series of miracles. I was born in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. When I was a child, my parents and I escaped Vietnam by boat. We lived in refugee camps in Malaysia for several years before coming to the United States. I was the first in my family to graduate high school, let alone go to college and then medical school at UCLA. I am so thankful for the blessings in my life and the opportunity to take care of people and be a positive force for a healthy lifestyle.
I diagnose and treat nerve, muscle, bone issues to decrease pain, restore function, and maximize quality of life without surgery. I perform electrodiagnostic studies (nerve conduction studies and electromyography) to diagnose nerve and muscle diseases. I work with a team that may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, neurologists, and surgeons. Together with my patients, we formulate a plan that takes into account the whole person, not just the current condition, so that they may continue to stay as active as possible throughout their lifetime.
The purpose of life is to be useful, responsible, and compassionate. I have a loving husband and three kids and we enjoy ballroom dancing, backpacking, skating, and learning self-sufficiency skills. I make time to volunteer, such as teaching medical students at UCLA and Special Olympics.
