About me

I was born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii. A career in medicine appealed to me because I love interacting with people and being able to help them improve their health and lifestyles.

About my practice

Internal medicine is the ideal specialty for me because of my general interest in all aspects of medicine. It also provides opportunities to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Working within the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group enables me to spend time with my patients during appointments, not only treating them but also hearing about the different non-medical aspects of their lives. Getting to know my patients on a more personal level is genuinely interesting and helps us to build a comfortable relationship. My philosophy of care is to simply treat the member, which I am able to do through the coordination of specialties and resources made available by Kaiser Permanente Hawaii. This makes providing the best patient care almost effortless.

How I thrive

In the past I was very involved in my children’s activities, but since my youngest has graduated from high school, I am left wondering what to do with myself. I would love to rediscover golf and gardening as ways to keep myself physically active. To relax, I like to get lost in a good television show or browse the Internet.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, geographic, 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.
