Trung LE, MD

Resident

  • Hometown: Houston, TX
  • Medical School: University of Texas Medical School at Houston
  • Why did you select Kaweah Delta’s residency program? The opportunities available at Kaweah Delta are hard to find anywhere. I wanted the challenge of being, not only the first EM residents, but the first residents in the entire hospital. The energy among the faculty is superb, as well.
  • Why did you choose your specialty? I chose Emergency Medicine because of the mix of medicine and surgery. I am able to do procedures, but also use my medical knowledge to diagnose. I also enjoy the constant action that the ER provides.
  • What was your impression of Visalia during your visit? I really enjoyed Visalia. I grew up in Iowa before moving to Houston, TX and Visalia reminds me of my childhood home, except with better scenery and weather. You can’t beat the affordability of Visalia in a state as expensive as California.
  • What are your hobbies? I enjoy playing with my daughters. When I have some time from the kids, I enjoy playing almost all sports, fishing and other outdoor activities, reading, building computers and programming and singing.
  • Other items you would like to share about yourself: I am currently married with 2 beautiful daughters, ages 8 and 3. I have always wanted to be a physician, but I ended up taking the long road towards my goal. I enjoy working with the underserved and interested in global health. I want to be able to assist with medical missions in the near future.
