About me

I was born in Hawaii and later moved to the mainland as a toddler, growing up in Texas and Nevada. My parents were always supportive of me no matter what career path I considered. I ultimately chose medicine, in part to be able to care for them in the future. I earned my Bachelor of Arts at The University of Texas at Austin and my medical degree at the University of Nevada School of Medicine. All my life I had heard about the place of my birth—the beaches, the weather, the food, and, most importantly, the friendly, industrious people. These stories inspired me to come to Hawaii for my internal medicine internship and residency.

About my practice

The other primary reason I decided to pursue a career in medicine was the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of people in my community. I chose internal medicine as my specialty because this field is the basis of so many subspecialties. It’s analytical and diverse, and will allow me to form long-lasting relationships with my patients.

I’ve given scientific presentations at medical conferences on topics including hernia repair (Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons), preventing hepatitis C in drug users (Reno Research Day at the University of Nevada School of Medicine), and traumatic brain injury (Radiological Society of North America).

To stay current in my field, I read the New England Journal of Medicine, the American College of Physicians’ Annals of Internal Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and the online resource UpToDate. Membership in the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians also provides me access to the latest information in medicine.

I decided to do my medical residency at Kaiser Permanente in Hawaii because of the supportive faculty and dedication to resident education. I could see that the residents here were happy and hardworking and that this was a reflection of the organization as a whole. I felt that this was a place where I could flourish. I was also happy to be working with a diverse population and occasionally have the opportunity to speak Korean.

Medicine is more than a science, it’s about the people. In my opinion, trust and effective communication between patient and physician are vital to providing high-quality care.

How I thrive

I stay physically and mentally healthy by running, working out, and generally staying active. In my spare time I like to watch movies and try out new restaurants.

  • providers in your plan or accepting new patients, call 1-800-966-5955 (toll free) or 711 (TTY for the hearing/speech impaired)

The information in this online directory is updated at least monthly. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. To report an error, please call 1-800-966-5955 or email us.

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.
