About me

I was born and raised in the Lincoln Heights area of East Los Angeles. I got my bachelor’s degree from Harvey Mudd College and earned my medical degree at the Charles R. Drew/UCLA Medical Education Program (CDU). My parents consistently displayed selflessness and generosity when raising my siblings and me. My brother and sister have been there for me my entire life, giving me a priceless sense of safety. My grandmother had faith in me and encouraged me to become a physician. Going to Hawaii felt like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train in an innovative residency program while also serving a community in need of physicians.

About my practice

Before coming to Hawaii, I participated in the Harbor/UCLA Summer Urban Health Fellowship program, the UCLA Student-Run Homeless Clinic, the Minority Health Conference, and CDU’s Project Santa Claus.

After graduating from college with a degree in economics, I worked in banking. Although I enjoyed the work, I believed that I had another calling, and after much reflection I decided on a career in medicine. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

My goal is to be a physician who thoroughly understands the issues that bring patients to me and to make effective decisions based on that knowledge. Internal medicine encourages curiosity and taking a comprehensive view of the patient that can include complex social, emotional, and economic issues.

I think the Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program is one of the most unique programs in the country, built on a foundation of high-quality primary care. The people here are welcoming and kind, and I want to give back as much as I can. I hope to work with the homeless community and to help inspire youth to become excited about science and health.

Today’s technology is terrific at keeping us up-to-date with medical research. There are electronic journals, resources that summarize journals, and guidelines that further distill those journals into practice. I love learning and find advances in medicine fascinating.

I bond with my patients by being honest, reliable, and interested. It’s a privilege for me to hear about their lives and experiences. Based on what I learn, I strive to work in partnership with them to come up with the best personalized plans for their health and well-being.

How I thrive

Going out into nature is great way to stay physically and mentally healthy. I enjoy eating good food, swimming, working out, reading, getting to know new people, and learning to play the guitar. I also love exploring Oahu and learning new things about this island!

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.

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. If you would like more current information on a practitioner's license, call either the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs Consumer Resource Center at (808) 587-3295 or visit their website, or call the Kaiser Permanente Customer Service Center at (808) 432-5955 (Oahu) or 1-800-966-5955 (toll free, neighbor islands).
