There is a constant struggle in the field of medicine to prolong and enrich life. I went into medicine because I wanted to be a part of this effort and chose pediatrics because of my love of children. As the fourth in a family of eight children, I have experience with everything from germs and bruises to sibling rivalry and compromises. Raising my own three children expands my life experience. I am happily married to Thach and we have twin girls and one boy. While balancing a full career in medicine with family is hard, I would not change my vocation. I believe that my life experience, my training and my family prepare me for the practice of pediatrics. I hope to partner with you to care for the health and well-being of your children.
I was fortunate to grow up in Shreveport after immigrating from South Vietnam to the United States with my family when I was six years old. After I graduated from Southwood High School and LSU Shreveport with a mathematics degree, I was accepted to medical school at LSU Health Sciences Center-Shreveport. I completed an internship and pediatrics residency at East Carolina University and Pitt County Memorial Hospital in North Carolina. After my residency, I chose to return home to serve the children of Shreveport-Bossier since 1997. I am certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP).
