I am a Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Clinical Health Sciences Tract. In addition to an active clinical practice in consultative general clinical cardiology, I also am medical director of the Electrocardiography Lab at Moffit/Long Hospitals, and the nation's first UCSF Asian Heart & Vascular Center located on the Mount Zion Campus on the 2nd floor of the Hellman Building. My research interests are in health disparities primarily involving the Asian/Pacific Islander populations as well as clinical hypertension and prevention. I am currently PI of a Phase III NIH sponsored trial evaluating the efficacy of EDTA based chelation therapy with multi vitamins in preventing future coronary events in diabetic patients with CHD. Another clinical trial is a Phase III trial evaluating empaglifozin vs placebo in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.
