Welcome to my Web page. I am delighted to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and describe my guiding principles as a hematologist/oncologist (a physician treating blood disease and cancer). After some time in private practice, I am glad to be a Kaiser Permanente physician and practice the kind of medicine I trained in during residency and fellowship here at Kaiser Permanente.
I was born and raised in Taiwan; my parents decided to pursue the American dream, and we found ourselves in San Gabriel Valley, where I went to middle and high school. In college, I majored in biomedical and electrical engineering, but the humanistic aspect of volunteering at a cancer hospital brought me to medicine, specifically oncology, where art and science of healing intersect. After medical school in lovely San Diego, I received further training in the northeast (in New Haven and New York City for residency and fellowship respectively), but I am glad to be back in lovely Southern California and to be close to my family.
As a hematology/oncology physician, I believe in compassionate care that focuses on the whole person instead of just the disease process. Using the latest approved treatment strategies, I work with members closely to form care plans that suit individual needs, taking into account the healing properties of the human body.
Spending time with family and friends is very important to me. I also enjoy traveling and learning to be a better photographer to take pictures of places and people. I continue to strive for a healthy diet and to exercise; my sport is tennis, both as spectator and playing myself.
