Why I Work at ICHS:

I was educated in the United States and China. Being an immigrant myself, I believe my working at ICHS can directly bring knowledge of Western medicine to the Asian immigrant community. I also can connect easily with other ethnic groups because of my first-hand experience as a struggling immigrant.

Patient Care Philosophy:

I believe all people in the United States, regardless of color, ethnicity, country of origin, and socioeconomic status, deserve affordable and quality health care.

Interesting Note About Myself:

More than 10 years ago, I was found to have a potentially serious health condition. Later, it turned out to be benign. While going through extensive tests and facing potentially serious complications, I came to realize how fragile human life is. I also learned that we all only have one life to live and we all should live well and fully every day.

Note:

An Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner has additional training, education and clinic experience, typically in a specialized area, and who can deliver primary care.
