Hello. I am a primary care physician with special interest in weight management and bariatric surgery.
I grew up in the Philippines and have a Chinese-Filipino cultural background. When I was young, I had the desire to help people. I found biology classes interesting and decided eventually to become a physician. I completed undergraduate and graduate studies in the United States.
Having practiced for many years, I have found that it is important to develop a trusting and compassionate relationship between physician and patient.
Each day, I read and learn from other people who have blazed the path before me. I make an effort to apply what I have learned to communicate and improve other people’s lives. It has been said that life is a journey. One will meet different people and situations on this journey. Choose to learn, develop, and become the person you were meant to be.
