My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always been a firm believer in preventive medicine and personalized health care. A legendary Chinese physician, Bian Que, once said, “Great physicians are the ones treating illness before it occurs.” The MDVIP model allows me to put more effort on disease prevention and wellness care.

As a primary care physician, I treasure the close relationships developed with patients and want to spend more time with each patient to listen to their story, carefully review records, perform comprehensive exams, and formulate personalized treatment plans. I am experienced in the management of obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and other chronic illness. I am especially interested in cardiovascular disease and cancer prevention.

My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. I have also done extensive medical research to have a deeper understanding on the mechanisms of diseases. I am committed to providing my patients with the latest medical knowledge and personal medical care. My practice is located Houston’s Memorial City area and I am fluent in English and Mandarin.
