Doctor Profile

I am a Taiwanese born medical graduate of the University of Western Australia, I have been here since I was three. I trained across WA, the NT and South Australia before returning home. I am currently working across most major private hospitals and primarily provide anaesthesia for vascular, orthopaedic and obstetric/gynaecological procedures.

I am married with two young children, I enjoy running especially and inexplicably when it is uphill.
