About me

I grew up in central California, received my undergraduate degree at the University of California, San Diego, and attended Creighton Medical School in Nebraska. I’m now certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology. Watching my father practice medicine in a small community left a lasting impression on me. Today I strive to bring the same care and attention that he gave to his patients to my own practice. Each time I visited Hawaii before moving here, the spirit, culture, and people made me feel that the islands were where I belonged. It was a blessing to finally have the opportunity to live in this wonderful place.

About my practice

My parents had a big influence on my decision to become a doctor. Observing and helping out in my father's practice showed me that this was a setting where I could do good for others and also feel personally fulfilled. During my internal medicine internship I did colon cancer research, an experience that led me to choose gastroenterology as my specialty.

I gave a presentation on DNA testing at Digestive Disease Week and co-authored research and book reviews on various topics in my field. These were published in journals such as Practical Gastroenterology, The American Journal of Gastroenterology, Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, and Clinical Colorectal Cancer. I also did research on oxygen and quadriceps that was published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.

To keep up with medical research, I attend national conferences, read medical journals in my field, and subscribe to email services covering endoscopic research. My professional organizations—the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the American College of Gastroenterology—also keep me informed about current trends and developments.

What first attracted me to Hawaii Permanente Medical Group was its values statement. I’ve had an amazing time working here, during which I’ve enjoyed the teamwork, compassion, and excellence found in this organization. In addition, over the years as our skills have expanded, we’ve devised even more efficient and cost-effective solutions to patient care.

I consider my work to be a calling. My approach to diagnosis, along with having open communication with my patients, allow me to unearth root causes of illnesses and craft treatment plans that help change the course of lives.

How I thrive

Taekwondo, which integrates physical and emotional health, is a big part of my wellness regimen. Meditation and prayer are as important to me as running, mountain biking, hiking, and snorkeling. I enjoy all outdoor activities, along with movies, filmmaking, music, and theater. I especially value time with my family and friends, participating in my children's theater productions, Cub Scouts activities, and sports events. I’m also a volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America and the Annual Undy RunWalk colorectal cancer awareness event.

Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing accessible facilities, services, and programs for all members, visitors and individuals with disabilities. In compliance with federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on disability, Kaiser Permanente provides:

  1. accessible exam rooms and medical equipment;
  2. free auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with individuals with hearing, vision, cognitive, and/or communication-related disabilities, including qualified sign language interpreter services and informational materials in alternative formats (large print, audio tape/CDs, accessible PDFs or Microsoft Word documents, electronic texts/disks/CD-ROMS, and Braille); and
  3. access to service animals, except where the animal poses a significant health or safety risk(s) to others.

For more information about access to a specific facility or provider, or if you believe that Kaiser Permanente has failed to provide appropriate access or services or otherwise discriminated on the basis of a disability, please contact Member Services toll-free 1-800-966-5955 or TTY 711, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Saturday, 8 a.m. – noon. You may also contact or file a grievance with the Kaiser Permanente Civil Rights Coordinator in person, by mail, fax or email at: 711 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, civil-rights-coordinator@kp.org, or toll-free 1-800-966-5955, TTY 711.

The availability and use of the Kaiser Permanente grievance procedure does not prevent a person from filing a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights or the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission.

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. If you would like more current information on a practitioner's license, call either the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs Consumer Resource Center at (808) 587-3295 or visit their website, or call the Kaiser Permanente Customer Service Center at (808) 432-5955 (Oahu) or 1-800-966-5955 (toll free, neighbor islands).
