I graduated magna cum laude with highest honors in biology from Harvard University, and I earned my medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. I completed an internal medicine residency at the Yale-New Haven Hospital and a fellowship in gastroenterology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I chose gastroenterology as a profession because it allows me to work with a wide spectrum of patients. I enjoy seeing healthy people for screening colonoscopies, treating people for short-term illnesses such as ulcers or gallstones, and building relationships with people who have chronic diseases, such as ulcerative colitis or viral hepatitis. I believe in listening carefully to my patients and working with them to make educated decisions for their health. I emphasize lifestyle and non-pharmaceutical approaches when appropriate, and use evidence-based medicine to guide medications and surgeries when necessary.
I’ve been practicing at The Portland Clinic since 2007. Working here, it’s easy to communicate with other providers to establish the best team approach to our patients’ health care.
I am ethnically Chinese, but my parents met in Burma (Myanmar) and my last name is Burmese. I was born in Wilmington, Del., but am happy to have made the Pacific Northwest my home.
I think that keeping an active mind, body and spirit is crucial to good health. I love learning, beyond the ever-expanding medical world, and have taken art, language, dance and cooking classes since coming to Oregon. I go regularly to the gym and love taking hikes or bike rides when it isn’t raining. Most importantly, I love spending time with my wife, family and friends.
