About me

I was born and raised in the town of Hilo on Hawaii Island. I then moved to Oahu for college and later attended the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine. I did a transitional year internship at Metrowest Medical Center in Framingham, Massachusetts, a physical medicine and rehabilitation residency at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and a pain medicine fellowship at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, all programs under the auspices of Harvard Medical School.

About my practice

Because of the impact I saw physicians having on peoples’ ability to live healthy and active lives, I decided that medicine was the career for me. Managing patients’ pain is a big part of that, and I decided to specialize in pain medicine, a specialty in which I felt I could do the most to alleviate acute suffering.

To keep up-to-date with the latest developments in my field and in medicine overall, I read professional journals, attend medical conferences, participate in continuing medical education programs, and consult my colleagues in the various specialties. In addition, the journals put out by my professional associations—the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the American Society for Nutrition—also give me access to the latest findings and recommendations.

Joining the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group is a great opportunity for me to care for the people of Hawaii as part of an exceptional health care organization. Every day I’m thankful for the warm, cooperative working relationships among physicians here, the supportive staff, and the modern technology that makes coming to work a pleasure.

My philosophy of care is to always have compassion for my patients and to listen attentively to their questions, concerns, and hopes. It’s my job to help them to the best of my ability in adjusting to their medical conditions, coping with their pain, and living their best.

How I thrive

Exercising regularly, staying active, and eating a proper diet help me to stay physically fit. For my mental and emotional wellness I try to spend quality time with my family. I place great value on being a good husband and father.

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.
