About me

I spent most of my formative years in the Midwest, where I was born and raised. I worked at my dad's gas stations every summer since I was 13. Army scholarships paid for my college and medical school, which led to an exciting 23-year military career prior to working at Kaiser Permanente. My wife is a local girl from Honolulu and I have two children in college pursuing biology degrees. My brother is a urologist in Texas and was also an Army colonel, while my father was a Marine who served in the Korean War. My family valued a strong work ethic, commitment, family, and service to others. This influence and my enjoyment of science seemed to naturally lead to a career in medicine.

About my practice

I enjoy listening to patients, performing a thorough evaluation, and helping to “fix” their problems or improve their life in some way. As a rheumatologist, I appreciate being able to evaluate the whole patient. I like the personal nature of the patient-physician interaction and relationship. I value the trust my patients place in me to treat their condition and help restore their health. I feel it is important that physicians not only be competent and well-trained, but that we serve as positive role models for our patients. I truly enjoy working with the talented providers here who are able to work in a friendly and collegial atmosphere. I’m an associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine, and a fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Rheumatology. I’ve authored more than 50 publications, including srticles in Arthritis & Rheumatism, the Journal of Rheumatology, the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology, Chest, and the Hawaii Medical Journal.

How I thrive

I stay fit by exercising, golfing, and walking my dog. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my wife, and in church activities.

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.
