I am a New Zealand trained endocrinologist, diabetologist and specialist physician of Chinese descent who was born in Malaysia. Most of my earlier years were spent in Malaysia but I have lived in New Zealand for 17 years, giving me a unique perspective on the cultural aspects of both societies.  I speak English fluently and am able to converse in Mandarin, Hokkien and Bahasa Malaysia (Malay).  Since 2011, I have been practising at Middlemore Hospital as a consultant endocrinologist, diabetologist and specialist physician.  In my current practice, I see patients who present with problems encompassing all aspects of diabetes and endocrinology, but I do have a particular interest in thyroid disease, including thyroid disease in pregnancy.  My practice at Middlemore Hospital also includes an active involvement in the teaching of medical students and the training of future physicians/specialists.
