About me

I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. During my medical residency at UCLA, I met my future wife — a local girl from Oahu. She had always wanted to return to the “best place ever,” so when the opportunity to work on Maui presented itself, we were quick to trade traffic-congested freeways for calming views of the Pali.

About my practice

I’ve always been motivated by a passion for learning and a desire to serve, so medicine was a natural fit for me. I chose cardiology because the field is constantly evolving — every year our understanding of the heart improves, and we learn better ways to treat our patients.I’m board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease, and Cardiac Electrophysiology. At the Maui Memorial Medical Center, I sit on the Medical Executive Committee and the Credentialing Committee. Additionally, I serve as the ACLS medical director. Outside of work, my wife and I volunteer at the Maui Humane Society, walking dogs and teaching them tricks (even the old ones). During the winter I conduct interviews for college students applying to Harvard.At the American Heart Association, I presented research on patients who suffer heart attacks. I’ve published papers on electrocardiogram interpretation, infections of the heart, and hospital readmissions. Most recently I published the first-ever description of an unusual type of pacemaker malfunction.To stay current in my field, nothing beats learning from my peers. Discussing interesting and difficult cases provides invaluable learning opportunities. Additionally, I listen to AudioDigest, a monthly lecture series that reviews a variety of topics in cardiology. I speak both English and Spanish. I believe in the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group’s philosophy of focusing on quality, taking a comprehensive approach to patient care, and ensuring accountability among physicians. This organization leads the way in finding novel approaches and solutions.The word ‘doctor’ derives from the Latin 'docēre', which means to teach. My purpose as a physician is to help patients understand health and disease and to guide them in making decisions about their care. I have two goals for every patient encounter. First, I have to make the patient smile — if I can’t do that, I probably haven’t done a good job connecting with him or her. Second, I want to teach the patient at least one new thing about his or her health. I enjoy hearing about the non-medical aspects of patients’ lives — their jobs, their hobbies, the largest fish they’ve caught, their favorite NFL team, whatever it might be that brings them happiness.

How I thrive

Practicing what I preach, I jog on the treadmill or work the speed bag most days of the week. I like animals, traveling, and surfing.

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.
