About me

I was born in Uganda, Africa and moved to the United States at age ten. Growing up in Africa, I witnessed devastating poverty resulting in diseases and realized that I had a strong desire to help others as a doctor. I settled in Hawaii in 1996 and am happily married with two grown children.

About my practice

As a family medicine physician I enjoy providing the full spectrum of care, especially the continuity from birth throughout the patient’s life and across multiple generations. I believe in relationship-based care for all of my patients and strive to reach out to those who do not come in and see me. I practice medicine that is based on evidence and feel that prevention is critically important. At the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group I have a strong, compassionate, multidisciplinary team to help me in caring for my patients. I also have available to me the most innovative and advanced electronic tools to make the right things easier to do. I have been with Kaiser Permanente for over a decade now and can sincerely say that I love what I do. The people who surround me every day encourage me and help me to recognize that I am exactly where I want to be. As the assistant associate medical director of Primary Care and Innovation, I believe in team-based care and am able to use my leadership skills towards increasing efficiency in care procedures for physicians and members. I get to know my patients and their families over time through face-to-face as well as mediated communication, like phone or email. Also, in my exam rooms I have pictures of my family and some of the places we have traveled to; these serve as great conversation starters and help my patients open up with me and connect.

How I thrive

Growing up my passion was playing tennis but now I exercise regularly by walking in the evenings. I also love to scuba dive, travel, hike and take walks on the beach. My two children are older now but we still find time to be together as a family during the summer and most holidays. My wife and I also attend international service trips to volunteer our medical skills to those in need.

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.
