Xon attended on the medical wards while teaching housestaff and medical students at both the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and West Los Angeles Veteran Administration Hospital.
 
His love for the Bay area finally brought him back to San Francisco and UCSF in 2017 where he continues to pursue his passion for inpatient medicine and attend on the various medical services at Parnassus.
