About me

I was born and raised in Kiel, Germany and lived there through medical school. I was introduced to the United States when I traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area as an exchange student during high school. I forged such a strong bond with the States that I embarked on an unforgettable nine-week tour after I graduated. This tour included a visit to Hawaii, where I met the friendliest people in the midst of the Pacific. I was ecstatic to return to Hawaii years later for my pediatric residency.After completing my residency, I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, then back to Kiel for additional training and work. When I received the opportunity to work with the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG) as a pediatric cardiologist, I simply could not resist returning to the warm, beautiful state that made such a lasting impression on me in my youth. I happily reside here with my lovely wife and our four children: three daughters and a son.

About my practice

Scientific curiosity and wanting to work directly with others led me to choose a career in medicine. I felt a need to help people on their journey through the ups and downs of life. My own experiences as a pediatric cardiology patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome prompted my interest in the cardiology field. Pediatrics became my passion when I realized how genuinely honest and sincere children are, and how much I enjoyed working with and being around them every day. What a blessing.My philosophy of care is to put the interests of my patients and their family first. In doing so, I approach my patients as a friend by making small talk rather than jumping straight to the problem. I try to ease the anxiety that often accompanies patients and their families, and strive to build a relationship so that we can work together. I am interested in my patients as people, not just as a medical issue or complaint.I believe that it’s important to be aware of your limitations and know when to ask colleagues for assistance in the management of complex problems. At HPMG, I am able to do this quite easily. To me, HPMG is like a big community of colleagues and friends where everyone has great respect for one another. It is unlike any other medical organization I have practiced with before and I have had very positive experiences as an HPMG physician.

How I thrive

Being active helps me to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I am hoping to bring tennis back more into my life, and every so often, I play a few holes of golf. I enjoy music and most of all, love to spend time with family. We explore the islands and hang out with friends, which all help me to stay balanced.

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.
