Thank you for visiting my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
Born in Taiwan, I moved with my family to Southern California at age 16. After graduating from Claremont High School, I attended college at the UC Berkeley. I then ventured to New England for medical school and earned my medical degree at Tufts University in Boston. After four years of cold winters, I returned to Los Angeles for an internal medicine residency and nephrology fellowship training. After nephrology training at USC, I stayed on as faculty for two years prior to joining Kaiser Permanente.
I chose to practice nephrology because the kidneys are the chemists of the body and perform many functions. In general, I believe in a shared approach to health care decision-making. I will provide you as much information as I can, and make suggestions about what I think will be the most sensible course of action for you so that you can make an informed choice that is best for you.
My family life is my major priority. When I am not working, I have my hands full being a working mother of three. My children, my husband and I all enjoy hiking and the outdoors.
