Overview

I wanted to be a physician from a young age. This desire never left me and I actually became a surgeon after my medical school training. In 1993, I was given the opportunity to participate in cutting edge molecular genetic technology and medical research in Australia. Thinking this was the key for resolving medical mysteries in the future, I quickly mastered DNA, RNA and Protein manipulation in the laboratory. It was at this time that I received my PhD degree and published several research articles in leading journals. Two events in my life led me to pursue a career as a family medicine physician. First, my wife suffered an acute asthma attack in 2002, nearly taking her life. Second, my beloved father died of lung cancer in the department in which I was trained as a thoracic surgeon in 2003. In the early spring of 2004, after months of long discussions with my family, I decided to embark on the journey to become a physician in the United States. This was a large leap in faith for me. It is a great privilege to walk alongside others on their journey through life, to accompany them as they face challenges, to lead at times, to follow and at others, to carry them in times of desperation. Family medicine is the most challenging specialty, where doctors have to deal with all kinds of diseases and all age groups of patients. More importantly, family medicine has become the gatekeeper for modern healthcare. I am currently accepting Medicare and Medicaid patients.
