About me

My choice to become an optometrist was rooted in personal experience. My grandfather suffered from glaucoma and eventually went blind. His frustrations with his vision inspired me to pursue optometry so that I can help people see better and improve their quality of life, whether it is reading a book, sewing, or seeing the face of a loved one.

About my practice

I have always been interested in the sciences, and optometry allowed me to pursue my passion and also help people at the same time. I started wearing contact lenses in the 10th grade. It was such a life-changing experience for me that I wanted to share this precious gift of sight as an optometrist. At the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG), I like the fact that I am surrounded by excellent practitioners whom I can count on for on-the-spot consultations and referrals. At HPMG, I can focus on the patient rather than worry about the business aspect of medicine. I also enjoy volunteering with Kaiser Permanente for community service projects. My philosophy of care is to treat each patient as if they were my own family member. I strive to provide the most competent care in the most professional and caring manner. I enjoy seeing my patients year after year, and taking the time to talk not only about their eyes but also about their hobbies, where they've traveled to, new additions to their family, and so on.I make sure that I listen well to my patients and also get them involved in the decision-making process to help them achieve the best possible outcome for their health.

How I thrive

I am a member at the Oahu Club, where I like to work out and go swimming with my husband and children. Mentally, yoga has helped me tremendously through giving me a sense of peace and gratitude for this wonderful life I live. My two children keep me very busy outside of clinic. I enjoy going to their baseball, basketball, softball, and soccer games on the weekends. We love to travel as a family to the neighbor islands as well as to the Mainland. I also welcome Japanese-speaking patients as I am able to speak Japanese.

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.
