About me

I was born in Honolulu and raised in Hawaii Kai. My mother was a recovery room nurse, and I grew up with dinner conversations about the world of medicine. I graduated from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and did my pediatric internship and residency with the UCLA Community Health and Advocacy Training Program. I completed my fellowship in developmental-behavioral pediatrics at Boston Children's Hospital. I also have a master’s degree in public health from the UCLA School of Public Health.

About my practice

Experiences at my mother’s workplace and undergraduate interests in biology and population genetics instilled in me the desire to apply this knowledge to advance the science of medicine. I was fortunate to have a medical school mentor who taught me the value of promoting health, not just focusing exclusively on treatment or prevention of disease. He also taught me that health can be influenced for the long term from a very young age, even before infancy. The field of developmental-behavioral pediatrics is particularly rewarding to me because it offers the opportunity to help children in their personal development, including their abilities to navigate their community and develop positive relationships.

I’ve spoken locally about autism evaluation and treatment. I’ve also spoken on current topics in pediatrics at conferences of the Hawaii Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Hawaii Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and the Special Parent Information Network.

I co-authored research on developmental disorders that was published in the American Journal of Medical Genetics. In addition, I co-authored research articles on genetic testing and autism for the journal Pediatrics; insulin adjustments for long-distance travel in the Journal of Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders; and vaccine-preventable disease in Japan, which was published in the Hawai’i Journal of Medicine & Public Health.

To stay current, I access online services, attend conferences, and read the journals of the Society for Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatrics – for which I’m a fellow. I have also been active in the Society for Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics.

Becoming a part of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group has been an exciting endeavor for me, because it offers the opportunity to create a developmental-behavioral pediatrics program and expand the availability of this service in Hawaii.

I treat my families with the utmost respect, and I like to spend time getting to know them as people—their strengths and concerns—before addressing medical issues. Using the best information available, I strive to partner with them in making decisions about their child's care.

How I thrive

To stay fit, I work out, hike, and go to the beach. Good relationships are important for one’s mind and mood, so I spend as much quality time as possible with my wife, children, and friends. We also like camping, going to the theater, and listening to live concerts.

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.
