About me

I was born in Bacarra, Philippines as one of seven children and when I was seven years old my family moved to the picturesque San Joaquin Valley in California. I came to Hawaii to participate in the University of Hawaii Family Practice Residency Program in 1995. While my family of origin is still in California, I am surrounded by a large and loving family here on Oahu, including my wonderful husband, our young son and grown daughter and her new family.

About my practice

I first became interested in medicine as a teenager when I would take my grandparents to our family doctor for their appointments and help them interpret what the doctor was telling them. While studying at UC Davis I also volunteered at Clinica Tepati, a nonprofit, student run clinic that serves the uninsured population of inner city Sacramento. There I was fortunate to shadow a family medicine physician and observe the wonderful care he delivered to his patients and their families. I knew then that family medicine was the specialty for me. Within the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group I enjoy collaborating with wonderful colleagues in multiple specialties. I appreciate that their advice is always available and I am grateful knowing that my patients are taken care of when I’m away. My philosophy of care is to empower and educate my patients to help care for themselves. Patient visits give me an opportunity to connect with our members and remind them to prioritize their health. I encourage my patients to exercise, improve their parenting skills, pursue education, practice family planning and improve communication within their families. I also get acquainted with a patient’s medical, family, and social history and learn what I can about their work, family life plans and future goals. I like hearing about what they do for fun and enjoy sharing back. I am the current assistant clinic chief of the Waipio clinic and am also a medical officer in the U.S. Army Reserve.

How I thrive

I stay physically and mentally healthy by eating right, walking, spending a lot of time with my family, and cultivating my relationship with God. I also enjoy cooking for my family and eating dinner while talking about our days. Going to the beach, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking and traveling are just a few of my other favorite pastimes.

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.
