About me

I was born on the Big Island of Hawaii in a small town called Honokaa, but have resided on Maui for most of my life. My father was a teacher and always emphasized the importance of health and education not only in his profession but also at home with our family. I appreciated his lessons and am grateful he introduced me to the significance of physical wellness. My wife and I continue to live in Wailuku, Maui where we both grew up. We have a daughter living in Los Angeles who is learning that work after college is actually fun. We also have a daughter attending a college of podiatric medicine in Iowa and is finding out how difficult medical school really is.

About my practice

My interest in medicine was sparked by a local newspaper photo featuring Kaiser Permanente physicians standing happily with their surfboards at the original Ala Moana Medical Center in Waikiki. Once I read about their profession and the fact that they could surf and care for members in one day, I was convinced that this was my dream job. I attribute my decision to specialize in family medicine to a leading personal physician who I met during college. He professed that family medicine would be one of the most necessary medical specialties in the future and I thankfully acted on his assertion. Family medicine is a truly rewarding field and I am honored to be the department’s professional chief. I enjoy having the support of a team of physicians and medical staff within the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group. Together we strive for the same goal of providing high quality and coordinated care to improve the health and well-being of our members. My mother always told me to treat others as you would want to be treated. I follow her advice to this day and hope that my patients feel comfortable building relationships with me and letting me become a part of their family in helping to solve their health issues. I am a staunch advocate for high school athletic trainers and am board certified in sports medicine in addition to family medicine. I was driven to explore this area after sustaining a major injury playing football in high school. I am also a member of the physician leadership team that oversees Kaiser Permanente Hawaii’s implementation and management of electronic medical records to improve member care.

How I thrive

I find it important to make time for myself to stay physically and mentally healthy. I often run and surf, which helps clear my mind. I also love spending quality time with my wife, especially when we watch Korean dramas together.

Kaiser Permanente works together with participating providers to ensure all cultural competence obligations are met. We are dedicated to ensuring that services are provided in a culturally competent manner to all members, including those with limited English proficiency and reading skills; as well as those with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

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.
