Dr Xu developed a deep fascination for the field of Rheumatology during her research training at the University of British Columbia. She focused her academic education on clinical epidemiology in arthritis research for 7 years.
She is Board Certified in Rheumatology and Internal Medicine. She completed her internal medicine residency at Sanford School of Medicine in South Dakota, and finished her Rheumatology fellowship training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston where she received superb recommendations.
Dr Xu stated: “The field of Rheumatology provides an opportunity to prevent when possible, treat when possible and alleviate pain when possible. Medicine means more than merely applying medical knowledge to people. I care and I am willing to listen to patients.”
