I believe in treating a patient with an illness, not an illness in a patient. It is a subtle but distinctly different approach to building a trusting relationship with my patients. I strive to empower my patients by educating and motivating them to not leave their health to chance and take an active role in being accountable for their health. It is a true privilege when patients allow me to be an integrated part of this journey.
I’m interested in minimally invasive surgery, ergonomics, obesity medicine, intestinal and endocrine surgery.
I joined Kaiser Permanente Fremont in summer 2005 after a few years in private practice.
Originally from Hong Kong, I immigrated to the Bay Area with my family as a teenager. For over a decade, I lived on the East Coast pursuing schooling and training. Work-life balance has always been important to me, especially now that I have a family with three children. To help with the rigor of my work, I try to practice mindfulness and celebrate life in the moment. We enjoy the outdoors, ball and board games, being adventurous with healthy food, and mostly, spending time with family and friends. In addition to English, I speak Cantonese and Mandarin.
