Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellows

Sachi Yogesh Gianchandani, MD

I grew up in Michigan and earned my M.D. at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. I recently completed my neurology training at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. During training, I was drawn to the field of palliative care as I recognized how it could improve the quality of life for many of my patients with neurologic disorders. Outside of medicine, I enjoy hiking and swimming. 

 Irma Huayanay Espinoza, MD

Dr. Huayanay was born and raised in Lima, Peru, where she completed her medical education at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia and completed her internal medicine residency at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley-Doctors Hospital at Renaissance in McAllen, Texas. During residency she discovered her passion for palliative medicine and geriatrics. She enjoys working with minority populations and to do research approaching health disparities.

Diana Huynh, MD

I am from Modesto , California, where I grew up the youngest of five kids. I  attended medical school at Stanford School of Medicine prior to completing emergency medicine residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. I’m excited to further hone my communication and symptom management skills through HPM fellowship! Outside of work, I’m happiest spending time with friends and family in the mountains- hiking and backpacking. 

Christine Le, MD

I am a first generation Vietnamese American and was raised in Southern California. I went to University of California Irvine for my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences and then to University of Southern Florida in Tampa, Florida for medical school. Most recently I finished Internal Medicine residency at Oregon Health and Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. Lastly I worked at Kaiser for one year in primary care. In my free time, I love to explore the area I live in by trying new restaurants, cafes and boba tea shops.

Melissa Ng, MB BChir, MRCP(UK)

I was born and raised in Hong Kong and later spent nine years in England, where I received a bachelor's degree in Experimental Psychology and a medical degree from the University of Cambridge. I moved to New York for neurology residency at Mount Sinai Beth Israel and Mount Sinai West, where I also served as chief resident. I am interested in providing high quality palliative care for patients with serious neurological illnesses and I hope to spread this passion to more neurologists. Outside of work, you can find me soaking up the Californian sun with my husband, daughter, and two cats Oreo and Durian.
