About me

I grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, and graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine. I completed my residency at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine, where I was chief resident. I returned to the University of Florida College of Medicine for a fellowship in gastrointestinal pathology, and I also did a fellowship in oncologic surgical pathology at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. My sister, who’s also a pathologist, continues to inspire and amaze me.

About my practice

The field of medicine was a natural career choice for me as it combines my love of science and my desire to help people in a meaningful way. Pathology as a specialty is challenging, but personally rewarding — it satisfies my scientific curiosity while providing me with an opportunity to work with patients. I’m a member of the American Society for Clinical Pathology and the College of American Pathologists. I’ve spoken several times about Lynch syndrome — a form of colorectal cancer — and the techniques used in pathology to diagnose it. My research paper on gene mutation in gastric cancer was published in the Hawaii Medical Journal. To stay current in my field and medicine, in general, I consult online resources such as PubMed and UpToDate. I also read professional journals, participate in continuing medical education programs, and attend medical conferences, both locally and on the Mainland, participate in continuing medical education programs. At the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, I found a sincere dedication to illness prevention, which I have always believed should be the driving force in medical practice. It’s a pleasure and a privilege to work with the excellent clinicians and staff in this organization; I especially enjoy the team approach here, seeing professionals in different specialties working together for the good of the patient. I appreciate the up-to-date technology at Kaiser Permanente, including the electronic medical record system, as well as the great support from staff. My philosophy of care is to help my patients understand how we’re partnering to improve their health and well-being.

How I thrive

I stay fit by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly, especially surfing. Spending time with family and friends helps me to relax and refocus

Kaiser Permanente works together with participating providers to ensure all cultural competence obligations are met. We are dedicated to ensuring that services are provided in a culturally competent manner to all members, including those with limited English proficiency and reading skills; as well as those with diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

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.
