About me

I was born in Michigan and grew up in Tennessee, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, California, and Illinois. I did my undergraduate studies at the College of Wooster in Ohio and received my medical degree and doctorate from Case Western Reserve University. For my internship, residency, and fellowships I went to the University of California, Los Angeles and University of Chicago, and I now serve as an assistant professor at University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine.

During residency I met my wife, who grew up in Honolulu. She came with me to the cold Midwest, and I promised that if she ever got a chance to move back to Hawaii, I’d be right alongside her. She later accepted a position as epidemiologist for the state of Hawaii, and here we are! My wife was thrilled to return to the islands, and we’re excited to be raising our two girls here.

My mother, a nurse, and my father, a biomedical researcher, instilled in me personal values that have served me well through the years. My wife is now my daily inspiration. I’d never have imagined moving to this wonderful place, if not for her.

About my practice

Fascination with my father’s biomedical research and the opportunity for lifelong learning led me to medical school. While rotating through my clinical clerkships, however, I became interested in patient care and education. In critical care I’m able to make an enormous difference for patients in a short time and form rewarding relationships. I love solving the mysteries of what makes people ill. And because critical illness can impact many different organ systems, it’s important that I understand the physiology of how all these systems work together to keep us healthy.

To stay current with medical research, I receive email summaries of newly published research, read journals, and attend conferences. I’m also active on social media where there’s a community of health professionals from around the world who engage in spirited debate.

Hawaii Permanente Medical Group provided me a perfect mix of clinical care experience, staff education, and the opportunity to continue research that I had begun on the mainland. The collegial, professional environment makes this an ideal place to practice medicine.

It’s important that physicians listen carefully to patients for the best clues to what’s ailing them. Compassion is also so important—nobody wants to be in the intensive care unit, and people need to know that this is a caring place. I enjoy taking the time to explain complex information and to answer questions clearly and honestly.

How I thrive

My wife is very supportive and a wonderful listener. Spending time with her and our daughters is my greatest joy. To stay fit I work out, go stand-up paddling, surfing, hiking, and bicycling. I'm also an avid vocal and instrumental musician. I enjoy Thai cooking, and I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to more than 25 countries. On the mainland I was involved in health care reform, a physicians’ choir, and kids’ health races.

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.

Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing accessible facilities, services, and programs for all members, visitors and individuals with disabilities. In compliance with federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on disability, Kaiser Permanente provides:

  1. accessible exam rooms and medical equipment;
  2. free auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with individuals with hearing, vision, cognitive, and/or communication-related disabilities, including qualified sign language interpreter services and informational materials in alternative formats (large print, audio tape/CDs, accessible PDFs or Microsoft Word documents, electronic texts/disks/CD-ROMS, and Braille); and
  3. access to service animals, except where the animal poses a significant health or safety risk(s) to others.

For more information about access to a specific facility or provider, or if you believe that Kaiser Permanente has failed to provide appropriate access or services or otherwise discriminated on the basis of a disability, please contact Member Services toll-free 1-800-966-5955 or TTY 711, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Saturday, 8 a.m. – noon. You may also contact or file a grievance with the Kaiser Permanente Civil Rights Coordinator in person, by mail, fax or email at: 711 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813,, or toll-free 1-800-966-5955, TTY 711.

The availability and use of the Kaiser Permanente grievance procedure does not prevent a person from filing a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights or the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission.

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.
