About me

I was born and raised in Northern California. After completing my medical education I spent several years on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona. I then returned to the California coast and practiced medicine for almost a decade as a small town family doctor. My family relocated to Oahu in 2008 where my partner attended law school. We are now excited to return to a more relaxed and rural life in the lovely upland community of Waimea, on the Big Island, where we plan to stay.

About my practice

I became interested in family medicine through a special medical program offered in the University of California system that offers medical training focused on collaborative problem solving while treating the patient as a whole. I’m certain it prepared me well for life as a family medicine physician and the special effort I put into collaborative health planning and communication with my patients, their families and with other medical providers. I believe that no disease or illness affects a body part in isolation and that as human beings we are an interdependent part of a larger system – be it a family, a workplace, a school or a community. And this, to me, is the very essence of family medicine. I also have my Hospice and Palliative Medicine certification, am a member of the Kaiser Permanente Prevention Committee, and I am the Hawaii region’s physician representative for kp.org, Kaiser Permanente’s public website.In addition to English, I also speak Spanish.

How I thrive

Through laughter, nature, family and a community of friends.

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.
