About me

I was born in Argentina and went to the National University of Cordoba for my medical degree and internal medicine internship. I then came to the U.S. and did a residency in internal medicine and fellowships in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. My board certifications are also in both cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology.

After spending a number of years practicing on the mainland, predominantly in the state of Washington, my wife and I were ready for a change of pace. We were excited to relocate to Hawaii because of the natural beauty here and the pervasive aloha spirit.

Both of my parents were physicians, and they were very influential in my life. After they passed, my older sister, another physician, mentored me through medical school. I’m blessed to have a wife who’s also a cardiologist. Initially I served as a mentor to her, but our roles have changed, and now I follow all of her advice.

About my practice

Medicine for me was a family business, and I quickly fell in love with the challenges this profession poses. Cardiac electrophysiology is a relatively new subspecialty that requires attention to detail and the spirit of a detective. It’s very satisfying to know that I’m enhancing my patients’ quality of life and improving their chances of long-term survival when I use the procedures available in my specialty. I’m interested in cardiac resynchronization using electronic devices, medical education, and promoting equal access to health care for all.

To stay current in medicine, I read my journals regularly, attend professional conferences, participate in continuing medical educations programs, confer with colleagues, and maintain affiliation with the Heart Rhythm Society.

Working with Hawaii Permanente Medical Group is personally rewarding for me, as I share the Kaiser Permanente vision of delivering high-quality, affordable health care. Collaborative medical providers and helpful support staff provider an excellent experience for our patients.
I believe in first educating patients about their conditions, then listening carefully to their concerns, expectations, cultural beliefs, and goals, and finally making shared decisions about treatment plans.

How I thrive

To maintain balance in my life, I ensure that I take adequate time to myself for reading, being creative, having conversations with my wife on long walks, and spending time with friends. Exercise, meditation, and biking help me to stay physically fit. I enjoy visits with family and other international travel, Mediterranean-style cooking, and learning about investment theories and economics.

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.
