My Approach to
As a board-certified internal medicine physician and a committed Christian, I put my patients first and provide compassionate care and support for a person's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. As a solo practitioner, I can take my time to listen to my patients' concerns and provide comprehensive care for the whole person, not just address symptoms and illnesses.
What does the gourd symbolize?
Chinese folklore tells the tale of Dr. Chang Fang Fei. Around 200 A.D., he became famous for his compassion, diagnostic proficiency, and effective treatments, as he carried medicine around in a gourd and healed the sick.
To this day, physicians in Asia hang a sign in their office, 懸壺濟世
, literally, "hang gourd heal public," which means "Practice Medicine to Heal the People.”
My extensive training from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and University of Maryland Hospital and my 13 years of broad clinical experience allow me to provide the full scope of primary care, health education, and prevention. In addition, our office can accommodate English, Mandarin Chinese, and Taiwanese speaking patients.
Our office accepts most major insurance plans and has flexible office hours to accommodate the needs of our patients. Contact us to make appointments by phone (410-552-8126
