About me

I was born and raised in Michigan, and after completing my residency and fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh, I moved to Hawaii to join the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG). I was inspired to join the medical group after seeing how the doctors provide excellent care in an efficient manner while maintaining the highest level of integrity. I felt I would be able to practice medicine in a similar fashion, which would be in alignment with my personal values. There are several physicians in my extended family, which includes my wife who is a pediatrician. We both enjoy interacting with people to help them address their health concerns. Medicine is well suited to me, as it allows me to combine my interest in science with the values of my upbringing, which emphasized helping and serving others.

About my practice

I am board certified in ophthalmology and fellowship trained in the subspecialty areas of cornea, external diseases, and refractive surgery (laser vision correction). I currently serve as the chief of ophthalmology for HPMG, and am the medical director of the Honolulu Ambulatory Surgery Center. Ophthalmology suits me because I am able to enjoy long-lasting physician-patient relationships. My ability to perform state-of-the-art surgery is also very satisfying.I believe that every person is unique, and tailor my interactions and explanations to each individual. For every patient, I aim to provide the best and most efficient medical and surgical treatment in a caring and supportive manner. Working at HPMG, I am surrounded by so many intelligent and caring physicians, and our interactions allow us to share knowledge and practice approaches that benefit our patients.

How I thrive

Coaching my two sons’ youth sports teams keeps me active and I exercise in moderation. Not only am I able to provide them and their teammates with fun and exercise, I’m also able to model good behaviors to help them develop into successful, respectful young adults.

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.
