Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Male
I’m a resident physician collaborating with an attending physician. I am available for same day appointments. I am accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
I was born in Honolulu and have lived most of my life in Kaneohe. I’m indebted to my entire family for supporting me, particularly my mother and father.After graduating from Iolani School, I spent the next several years in Los Angeles attending the University of Southern California. I was excited to be accepted to medical school here at home and even more enthused to be chosen for the Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program.
I’m excited to be able to do my residency training in Hawaii, because I would like to pursue a career in primary care in the islands. I enjoy internal medicine because of the sheer breadth of patients I get to see and the understanding that comes from learning about the human body across all its organ systems. I’m a strong advocate of primary disease prevention and healthy living. We’re blessed to live in paradise, and I believe that everyone can find some form of exercise they enjoy to stay fit. Every person knows something they can teach me, so I like to “talk story” with patients and learn from them. I also believe happiness is a reflection of current physical health. I want to ensure my patients are healthy and optimize their chances for living a long, productive, happy life. I’m passionate about teaching wilderness health skills. I founded a wilderness medicine interest group in medical school and continue to plan events that promote safety and best health practices for outdoor activities. To stay up-to-date with the latest medical research, I read medical journals and listen to medical podcasts.
I’m a physically active person, and being outdoors is my therapy — whether I’m hiking, surfing, diving, or fishing. I’m fortunate to have very supportive family and friends that help me de-stress. I also enjoy listening to music and playing the ukulele and guitar.
