About me

As a child growing up in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, I envisioned that I would someday return home to serve the community. Little did I know that I would have the privilege to return as a physician. At an early age, I watched my mother cope with a rare vascular disease and yet manage to live a very productive life. This inspired me to seek a profession where I would be able to help others, and led to my decision to pursue medicine.

About my practice

In medical school, I found that my interest centered on surgery. I enjoyed the “hands on” work and the ability to physically solve the patient’s medical problem. Although the surgery rotations were the hardest, with the longest hours and most grueling work, I found that surgery was the most fulfilling for me. Joining Hawaii Permanente Medical Group was the best professional decision I have made. We have a great medical group with fantastic colleagues, and this enables us to offer the highest level of medical care to our patients. Through partnering with my patients, I am able to put the patient at the center of care and offer care options that best fit their needs. I especially enjoy the personal nature of the physician–patient interaction. As a Kona resident, it is always a pleasure to hear about “old Hawaii” from those who have lived here for so many years. I have the privilege of serving as the President of the American Cancer Society Hawaii Pacific Board of Directors and as Co-Director of the West Hawaii Cancer Symposium. I am an Assistant Clinical Professor in Surgery at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine, a Fellow of the American Colleges of Surgeons, and a member of the Pacific Coast Surgical Association and the American Society of Breast Surgeons. I am invested in giving back to the community that has offered me so much over the years. I am Director of the Onizuka Memorial Committee, which co-sponsors an annual Space Science Day in Hilo that is designed to get young people excited about science and technology.

How I thrive

In my time off, I enjoy playing golf, sharing a nice dinner with family and friends, volunteering in my community, traveling to meetings on the Mainland, and taking various golf trips. My favorite is an annual golf trip to Reno that began in 1995.

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.
