About me

I was born in the “sugar plantation” community of Waipahu and later moved to the “pineapple plantation” community of Wahiawa. While growing up in the country, I experienced a strong sense of family, community and hard work. My supportive and encouraging wife and I seek to instill these same values upon our loving daughter who is a college student in Philadelphia. I have over 20 years of experience in practicing medicine and have also served as a clinical professor teaching medical students and residents. I knew I wanted to be a part of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group because of its team approach to health care and its emphasis on quality.

About my practice

Although I have always been interested in the sciences, it was during my undergraduate years in college that I discovered how much of a difference I could make in people’s health. I participated in a research project that strove to change the unhealthy lunch habits in an elementary school through a nutrition education class that I also helped to teach. Being a part of this incredible experience was life-changing and I wanted to do more. Practicing medicine provided me that opportunity. I was drawn to family medicine because it offered me the opportunity to see patients of all ages, and to follow an individual from childhood to adulthood. I enjoy listening to and “talking story” with my patients, and discovering what we have in common. Learning about their interests, family and work is often my favorite part of the day. Building these relationships also helps to reinforce my philosophy of care, which is based on disease prevention and health maintenance. I want to guide my patients to have a better understanding of their health and care, and getting to know them and their lifestyles enables me to do so.

How I thrive

Taking walks helps me to stay physically and mentally healthy. It’s a time when I can think quietly by myself or talk intimately with my wife. I also enjoy the creativity of photography. This hobby slows me down in the sense that it helps me to acknowledge and appreciate my surroundings and family more. I am also a sports fan and like to attend local sporting events, both at the high school and college levels. Go ‘Bows!

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or is obtained as part of the credentialing process.
