About me

I was born in Palo Alto, California and my family moved to Honolulu when I was 15 years old. After graduating from Punahou School I stayed in the islands to complete my undergraduate and medical education. I did my residency work in Pennsylvania and practiced there for 20 years before moving back to Hawaii to be closer to family. I have been married to my wife for over 30 years and our wonderful adult daughter is married and is a practicing optometrist in New York City.

About my practice

Ever since I was young, I felt that a career in medicine would fulfill my desire to help people and make a difference in the world. I was inspired to pursue this dream after touring the John A. Burns School of Medicine while still in high school. During my training I decided to specialize in family medicine because I enjoyed every aspect of patient care and appreciated being with all age groups. As a physician with the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, I feel very fortunate to be part of a very dynamic, patient-centered and progressive medical group which allows me to offer quality medical care, maximize my time with my patients, and work as a team with outstanding colleagues. I have also received much support and enjoy my role as the clinic chief for West Big Island including the Waimea, Kona and South Kona clinics. I strive to have my patients live well in every stage of their lives. I am dedicated to helping them reduce their health problems and maintain a level of well being, and I spend time getting to know them to ensure I address the full scope of their medical needs. I am also available to my patients in person, through phone appointments and over email.

How I thrive

Keeping healthy is very important to me and I keep fit by walking, hiking, swimming, and snorkeling. Staying active also helps nurture my photography hobby, which started in high school. I now carry my camera almost everywhere I go. It sparks my creativity and captures our families’ life story. I also enjoy staying connected with our daughter, her husband and other family members and friends who live on the Mainland. My wife and I make an effort to speak with them regularly and visit as often as we can.

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process.
