About me

I was raised in Southern California. After spending the first two years of medical school at Mount Sinai in New York, I came back to California and finished my degree at UCLA. I wanted to stay near the ocean after medical school, and had the good fortune to complete my orthopedic training in Honolulu. After my training, I was happy to move to Maui, where my family and I enjoy the ocean, mountains, and the relaxed rural life style. My father and grandfather were both urologists, and I think the family history inspired me to go into medicine. My father in particular was someone who guided by example and always did his best to help others. Now I am inspired by watching my three children grow up and follow their own path toward achieving their goals.

About my practice

I always wanted to be the kind of doctor you went to when you were hurt, not the kind you went to when you were sick. There is a lot more to orthopedics than trauma care but what unites orthopedic surgeons is that we help people be active. What I enjoy the most about my practice is helping patients return to the activities they enjoy.I am Section Chief of Orthopedics on Maui. I did a fellowship in Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine, and I return every year to help teach arthroscopy at the annual meeting in California. I am a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the Hawaii Orthopedic Association. Community activities take up some of my free time. I have had a role in supporting the Pacific Cancer Foundation on Maui, and can sometimes be seen running the Kalama Park skating rink on Public Skate night. I also help out at my children’s schools.

How I thrive

For exercise, I enjoy hiking, sailing, and occasional surfing or bodyboarding. Running and swimming also help keep me fit. Whether it's surfing or camping or just walking the dog, I love doing outdoor activities with my family. I also enjoy working in my small orchard and garden at home and dabbling in woodworking.

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.
