About me

I was born in India and raised in Tennessee and Arizona. I was drawn to Hawaii for the climate, the natural beauty, and the chance to work for the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG), having transferred from the Northwest Permanente Medical Group. I live here with my husband, along with my dog Ursi (aka Criminal). My mother is a physician, and I loved science as a child. Growing up and going to medical school in Arizona exposed me to a great deal of skin cancer cases. This field within dermatology remains my clinical interest today.

About my practice

Joining HPMG has allowed me to practice medicine in an area of significant need in the most beautiful setting. I want to treat every patient as though he or she is a family member. I welcome hearing my patients' incredible life experiences and stories, especially those who have lived through World War II, the Depression, and other difficult times in history. I enjoy researching clinical cases as they come up in my practice, and have co-authored case studies for the American Journal of Medicine, where I serve as the dermatology editor.I am board certified in dermatology and a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery.

How I thrive

I try to exercise for at least an hour a day, and owe my peace of mind to my husband. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, bicycling, reading, and spending time with my dog.

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.
