Dr. Dola's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dola "I came to the United States with my parents and my two sisters in April of 1975 after the fall of South Vietnam to the communists. My brother, who was studying in France at the time, reunited with us several months after we arrived in the United States. Thanks to the love and encouragement of my caring parents and siblings, I have always strived to do my best in all that I was involved, whether that be studying in school, playing musical instruments like the piano and the violin, playing sports, or most importantly, studying about and practicing my Roman Catholic religion. I have always had a natural curiosity and a natural inclination about learning about diseases and the treatment of diseases, and had set as my goal to become a physician at a very young age, which I believe is partially due to the fact that I was born into a family of many physicians, including my paternal grandfather, my maternal uncle, and my oldest sister. I have been a physician for over 23 years, and my love for my profession is reinforced each day by the connection that I have with my patients and with his/her family members when I try my best to serve him/her using the latest technology in medicine."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dola "As Mother Teresa's, now Saint Teresa of Calcutta, goal was "to serve Jesus in the distressing disguise of the poor," my own goal, born from the admiration of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, is to be able "to serve Jesus is the distressing disguise of the ill and suffering" with the compassionate care which he/she deserves.

I hope to be able to care for each patient daily "as if I were caring for Jesus," as Saint Teresa of Calcutta and as my parents have taught me.

I know that I will never achieve one-millionth the greatness of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, but I like to think that I am changing the world in a positive way one patient at a time. "
