About me

I was born and raised in Honolulu, went to Punahou School, and spent most of my early years in or around Manoa Valley. After earning my Bachelor of Arts at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and my medical degree at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine, I completed my internal medicine internship in the University of Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program. I then went to Loma Linda University Medical Center for a residency in anesthesiology and to Oregon Health & Science University for a fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology. I’m now board certified in both general anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology.

Although I left Hawaii for a few years, the islands never left my heart, so I’m grateful that I could return home to care for the community that’s given me so much. Most of my family still live on Oahu, and it’s great to be close to them again.

About my practice

Both of my parents were in health care, and I believe that had some influence on my decision to pursue a career in medicine - along with a desire to be intellectually challenged and to help the people in my community. As far as my specialty goes, I love kids, surgeries, and procedures. Pediatric anesthesia allows me to interact with and help kids, to have a role in reassuring their parents, and to work with my hands in the operating room. My special interests, in addition to pediatric anesthesiology, include pediatric pain management and medical education.

To keep up with the rapid changes in medicine, I read medical journals, access online resources, attend medical conferences, attend continuing education programs, and work collaboratively with colleagues. At the Western Anesthesia Residents Conference, I spoke about the advantages of early extubation in the operating room following complex congenital heart surgery. My professional affiliations with the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Hawaii Society of Anesthesiologists, and the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia also provide me with the latest developments in my field.

When I was in private practice, I grew tired of being distracted by the business side of medical care. The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group offers me the opportunity to focus on practicing medicine and doing what's best for my patients. I hope for a long and fruitful time here at Kaiser Permanente.

My approach to care is to treat patients and their families as if they were my own loved ones, to treat them as I’d want my love ones treated. I try to maximize my time with patients and their families, and I especially look forward to working with children and teenagers.

How I thrive

To stay healthy, I exercise several times a week, eat sensibly, get proper sleep, and remember to spend quality time with my family. On my time off, I enjoy basketball, video games (when my wife lets me play), and working around the house.

Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing accessible facilities, services, and programs for all members, visitors and individuals with disabilities. In compliance with federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on disability, Kaiser Permanente provides:

  1. accessible exam rooms and medical equipment;
  2. free auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with individuals with hearing, vision, cognitive, and/or communication-related disabilities, including qualified sign language interpreter services and informational materials in alternative formats (large print, audio tape/CDs, accessible PDFs or Microsoft Word documents, electronic texts/disks/CD-ROMS, and Braille); and
  3. access to service animals, except where the animal poses a significant health or safety risk(s) to others.

For more information about access to a specific facility or provider, or if you believe that Kaiser Permanente has failed to provide appropriate access or services or otherwise discriminated on the basis of a disability, please contact Member Services toll-free 1-800-966-5955 or TTY 711, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Saturday, 8 a.m. – noon. You may also contact or file a grievance with the Kaiser Permanente Civil Rights Coordinator in person, by mail, fax or email at: 711 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, civil-rights-coordinator@kp.org, or toll-free 1-800-966-5955, TTY 711.

The availability and use of the Kaiser Permanente grievance procedure does not prevent a person from filing a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights or the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business and uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. If you would like more current information on a practitioner's license, call either the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs Consumer Resource Center at (808) 587-3295 or visit their website, or call the Kaiser Permanente Customer Service Center at (808) 432-5955 (Oahu) or 1-800-966-5955 (toll free, neighbor islands).
