About me

I was born and raised in California and am the daughter of two immigrant parents. My father, an internal medicine doctor and a huge influence on my career choice, is from Vietnam and my mother is from Switzerland.

I’ve always been attracted to medicine because it is challenging and involves science. But the main reason I became a doctor is because I love helping people. I chose family medicine in particular because it allows you to focus on continuity of care, which is an essential component to helping patients be healthier for the long term.

When treating my patients, I consider the interrelationship of all the body’s complex systems and the role played by nutrition, environment, and psychology.

Happy patients actively involved in developing a care plan, following through with recommendations, and returning to see us is what makes a day at work great! The ultimate compliment is when patients refer their family and friends.

Personally, I’ve adopted a whole-foods approach to nutrition and I’m also an enthusiastic proponent of mind-body practices. I encourage my patients to actively participate in their own wellness to prevent or minimize issues of chronic disease and to look, feel, and function at their best. I think our enthusiastic culture of healthy lifestyle is one of the things that make Sanitas great.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with family, being outdoors, doing daily fitness routines, going to concerts, and trying new restaurants, especially ones that serve ethnic foods.
