He became a doctor and specialized in oncology because he likes to take care of people at a difficult and transitional time in their lives. In his practice, Dr. Quang's approach is not only to address a patient’s physical health, but also to take care of his or her mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

He believes that advances in technology and medical therapeutics coupled with a sense of compassion and social justice will improve the quality of life of patients afflicted with cancer and will hopefully eradicate this disease. He has spent his free time taking care of the indigent by staffing free clinics, HIV and cancer screening programs including the Mazzoni Clinic, Paul Hom Asian Clinic, and St. Rita's Free Clinic. He is always looking for new opportunities to engage in providing care for the poor.
