About me

I was born in Sacramento, California, and grew up in Honolulu. After graduating from Punahou, I went to Harvard for my Bachelor of Arts and to the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York for my medical degree. I did a general surgery internship and residency at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, where I was chief resident, and then did two fellowships – one in cardiothoracic surgery at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and one in thoracic surgical oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

I’m now board certified in thoracic surgery and serve as assistant clinical professor of surgery at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine. I moved back to Honolulu to join my father's cardiothoracic surgery practice, and in his retirement, I continue to consult with him about the practice of medicine and cardiothoracic surgery.

About my practice

My father and my mother, who was a pediatrician, impressed me as models of hard work, commitment, sacrifice, and humility. Watching them take care of others inspired me to become a physician. Treating cardiovascular disease is very rewarding, as we can often see immediate benefits following surgery. I’m particularly interested in aortic surgery, heart valve surgery, catheter interventions, and coronary artery bypass grafting.

I've spoken at numerous professional conferences. My earlier interests revolved around heart failure and circulation problems, and more recently I’ve spoken on complex cardiac operations, aortic stent grafting, and heart valve therapies.

To stay abreast of the most up-to-date medical research, I follow peer-reviewed journals in my specialty and apply these new findings to my own practice. Attending conferences of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and American Association of Thoracic Surgery also allow me to consult with colleagues and to have access to information on the latest developments.

Committed leadership, collaborative physician relationships, and a unified vision to provide consistent, high-quality care are what attracted me to the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group. Furthermore, my wife is a neonatologist at the Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center, and my sister is a resident in pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. I was fortunate to train with top surgeons on the mainland, and I’m gratified to be able to bring that level of care to our community.

Above all, I believe in being compassionate and treating patients as I would my own family. It’s important to me that my patients have confidence in the care they’re receiving and to think of me as their partner in health. I greatly appreciate witnessing patients coming in with health issues, seeing them safely through surgery, and watching them walk out of the hospital with their grateful families.

How I thrive

I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, and going to the gym. To decompress from the stress of work, I play guitar and jazz piano, listen to good music, experiment with photography, spend time in the garden, and take vacations with my family.

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.
