About me

Born and raised in New Jersey, I earned my Bachelor of Science at Northeastern University in Boston and my medical degree at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey. For my internal medicine internship and residency, I traveled back to Boston to Brigham and Women's Hospital. We fell in love with the islands when my wife and I visited friends who were in the armed forces and stationed in Hawaii. Looking for a change from the pace of the Northeast, we decided to move here permanently.

About my practice

I’ve always loved science, and in college I majored in biochemistry. Although I enjoyed my work in this field, I felt a need for more meaningful connections with people. When I was an intern doing clinical research at Massachusetts General Hospital, I realized that if I were a physician, I’d be able to apply this scientific research in a more direct and personal way.

Internal medicine requires a physician to approach a patient as a whole, to understand the interactions among multiple biological systems, and to weigh the risks and benefits of every decision. No two patients are the same, so the counseling and education I provide as a doctor must be unique to each patient. This requires constant self-reflection and a striving for self-improvement on the part of the physician. My interests include medical education, palliative and end-of-life care, and veterans’ health.

I’ve co-written research articles on genetics and diseases of the liver that were published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism and the Journal of Clinical Oncology, respectively. I’m also a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

To ensure that I’m current on the latest developments in my field, I read professional journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, and I use its online resource Journal Watch, as well as the online tool UpToDate. Attending professional conferences and consulting colleagues are also helpful ways to stay at the forefront of medical knowledge. My membership in the American Medical Association also helps ensure that I’m aware of the latest information.

When interviewing with the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, every person I met was the type of person with whom I knew I’d enjoy working. The physicians and providers here work hard and care about their patients. They’re also well-rounded and make an effort to maintain balance between their professional lives and their personal and family lives.

The practice of internal medicine requires a relationship between patient and physician that fosters open and honest communication about goals of care, allowing therapy to be tailored to the individual. Minimizing unnecessary testing is also important in modern medicine.

I enjoy hearing about where my patients are from, who their family members are, what they do for work—all the things that make them who they are. It’s gratifying to be able to give my patients reassuring news. I also welcome the more difficult conversations, during which I can offer comfort when situations become more challenging.

How I thrive

Hockey, baseball, scuba diving, and hiking allow me to clear my mind and relieve any stress left over from the week. I also enjoy woodworking, sketching, photography, cooking, and traveling.

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.
