About me

I was born on the East Coast, though my family relocated to the West Coast and eventually settled in the Mid West. I had always wanted to live in Hawaii, so I made it a point to do some of my elective medical rotations here. Upon graduating from medical school, I returned for good. I love the isle’s trade wind weather, fantastic scenery and strong community spirit.

About my practice

I have always enjoyed analytical and investigative work but also consider myself to be a strong people person. Fortunately, a medical career allows me to combine all of my interests and strengths. Specializing in occupational medicine was a natural and befitting decision for me because I am able to apply my medical training in physical medicine and rehabilitation. I also get to see patients on both an urgent and ongoing basis; for me it is the best of both worlds. I enjoy occupational medicine because I can often relate to my patients who are primarily working adults in a variety of professions. From the age of seven, I worked in many types of jobs before pursuing a medical career, from stints in “blue-collar” labor positions to “white collar” professional and technical work. I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and being reminded of my own personal experiences. For me, the physician/patient relationship is the best part of being a doctor; it never gets old. I learn a great deal from my patients and I love listening to their experiences and hearing about all aspects of their lives, even those not directly related to their health or medical condition. This relationship helps me to be a better advocate for my patients and provide them with a greater understanding of their health. My philosophy is to treat my patients how I would like my family to be treated. The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group consists of an incredibly talented and supportive group of physicians. I am thankful to have access to so many gifted specialists offering such high quality coordinated care and I am honored to have them as colleagues.

How I thrive

I stay fit through a combination of weight lifting, cardio work, surfing and swimming. I stay mentally healthy by playing with my great Golden Retriever, Sunny. I also enjoy socializing with my friends and family, and spend much of my free time at church, the beach or the gym.

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.
