About me

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I chose to become a physician because I wanted a career that would allow me to use my strengths to help others, which is something I find very satisfying. At the Oregon Health Sciences University, I trained in general surgery with a surgeon who was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii. He convinced me to move to Kona, Hawaii where I built a private practice with my own surgical center. After over 10 years of successful but isolated private practice in Kona, I embraced the opportunity to work with a group of highly educated colleagues in the intellectually stimulating setting of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG).

About my practice

Although I initially aspired to be a trauma surgeon, I was very impressed during my residency training with the plastic surgeons who managed burns, hand injuries and facial trauma as well as performed a wide variety of reconstructive procedures. So following my six year general surgery residency, I decided to pursue a plastic surgery career and completed another two years of training where my artistic talents could blend with the science of surgery. My philosophy of care is to strive to provide the absolute best care I am capable of for each patient and always keep patient safety a first priority. Working for our medical group allows me to focus on patient care without having to worry about running a business. I find it incredibly beneficial to work with such a large group of physicians who are there to help and support our patients. I am a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and past board member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

How I thrive

Surfing and exercising regularly help me to stay fit. I also enjoy hiking, skiing, and snowboarding. I enjoy the arts and love to travel. Keeping up with my kids, both physically and mentally, is a daily challenge.

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process.
