So many of my colleagues think they come from the East – but I really come from the East, in my case, China! I am part of the Baby Boomer generation – I wonder if that could that be why I am a baby doctor.
I grew up in Hong Kong and received my higher education in Taiwan. Then I moved to the United States and completed my pediatric residency in 1975 at Brooklyn-Cumberland Medical Center in New York, and Jersey City Medical Center in New Jersey. I then became a Board Certified Pediatrician. I also completed a mini-Fellowship in Allergy and Immunology at the University of Wisconsin in 1983. First, I practiced pediatrics in Wilmington, Ohio, and then for 10 years in Bloomington, Illinois. Finally, I moved west to California, practicing in Oakland and San Leandro for five years, and later in Tri-Valley. In 1997 I joined Bayside Medical Group. I was especially attracted to Bayside for two reasons. First, Bayside has a good number of excellent pediatricians who enrich each other’s experience daily. Second, I am very pleased that Bayside emphasizes high quality care for patients. Overall, as I have moved from place to place, I feel that I am journeying and pressing on toward the heavenly goal.
My wife and I have two wonderful daughters. Joyce is a Speech-Language Pathologist at Children’s Hospital Oakland’s Pleasanton Satellite Clinic. Justina just graduated from UC Davis and is looking for a career in the medical field. Joyce plays violin and Justina the viola. They both perform and serve in their church orchestra with several performances throughout the year. My wife and I feel very blessed that our daughters have the wonderful opportunity of this free and prosperous country that we ourselves did not have in our youth. Knowing where we came from and where we have arrived makes us very grateful to value and enjoy our home sweet home.
Since I am from China, I speak Cantonese and Mandarin. So, I may speak English with an accent. If you have trouble understanding me, don’t hesitate to ask me to repeat what I said! Helping you is very, very important to me. I am very proud to be a practicing pediatrician, and to be able to contribute to the health of our children. "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." This thought from Proverbs is what motivates me most as a pediatrician.
