About me

I was born in Texas, and as a military dependent, moved around the country until my senior year in high school, when my father retired in Massachusetts. I earned my medical degree at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Maryland, did my pediatrics internship and residency at the Madigan Army Medical Center, and completed a fellowship in pediatric neurology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

My wife and I were both physicians in the U.S. Army. At one point we were transferred to Hawaii and were fortunate to remain here until our own retirement. We fell in love with the culture and the people and can't imagine living anywhere else.

About my practice

The idea of serving others in some capacity always attracted me, and practicing medicine seemed to be a great way to fulfill that goal. Because I felt a close connection with children, I chose pediatrics for my specialty. In particular, I wanted to provide care to children with special needs, and as a result went into child neurology.

Over the years I’ve been fortunate to be invited by the American Academy of Pediatrics to serve as teaching faculty for local and national conferences in Hawaii and on the mainland, delivering lectures and presenting workshops on a variety of child neurology topics. I’ve also been fortunate to have several articles published. My current research interests are brain injury and child abuse.

Frequent reviews of the medical literature help keep me current in my field. In addition, my professional associations, the Child Neurology Society and the American Academy of Neurology, provide information on the latest developments and recommendations.

I started with the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG) in child neurology on a part-time basis to provide additional coverage for children in need of subspecialty care. During my time with HPMG I found the staff to be enthusiastic about their work, exceptionally helpful and supportive, professional, and skillful at what they do. I wanted to be part of an organization that cares about their patients and staff as much as HPMG clearly does.

My approach to medicine is to provide the best care possible for my patients, day or night. I try to find a common interest with parents, which is usually the health and happiness of their children. To decrease anxiety and help establish a connection with little ones, I like to incorporate play into our visits.

How I thrive

In my spare time I relax by reading good books, working in the yard, walking along the beach, and golfing. I have a great marriage and especially enjoy spending time with my wife and family. Community service means a lot to me, and I currently serve on the Hawaii Make-A-Wish Medical Outreach Advisory Board. Staying connected with God also helps me keep things in perspective.

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.
