About me

Born and raised in the United Kingdom, I immigrated to the US as a teenager. I earned my medical degree at the University of Illinois, completed a general surgery internship at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, and served as a general practice physician in the Navy. I was a medical officer in the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion and was deployed twice to Afghanistan. The second time I deployed, I was with the Marine Aircraft Group at Kaneohe Bay, and both my wife and I fell in love with the islands.

After serving in the military, I did my family medicine residency at the Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center. My parents continue to inspire and motivate me as they overcome the many challenges they face. My wife makes me a better person and motivates me to be a better physician.

About my practice

Prior to pursuing medicine, I worked as a computer consultant for a startup company in San Diego. I enjoyed my job but wanted a career that provided a way for me to combine my love of science with my yearning to help people. While in medical school, I enjoyed all of my rotations and initially thought I would choose a surgical specialty; however, after working in general practice, I saw that family physicians have flexibility and a broad knowledge base that allows them to help their patients in many different ways and form lasting relationships.

To stay up-to-date in family medicine, I read journals such as the American Family Physician, Family Practice Management, and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). My membership organization, the American Academy of Family Physicians, also publishes the latest findings and recommendations.

During my residency I could see that the Kaiser Permanente model was very effective in delivering excellent health care. The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group’s (HPMG) vision for the future of medicine and the value it places in patient- and family-centered care made me certain that this was where I belonged.

My job is to keep my patients as healthy as they can be so they can enjoy their lives and the beauty that surrounds us. Many diseases can be prevented not only by vaccination and screenings, but also by healthy eating, exercise, and stress reduction. It’s also important that I understand each patient’s social history, including where they were born, what they do for a living, and their family environment. I hope to be a guide, teacher, and sounding board for people who are working to prevent illness as well as those who are coping with a medical condition.

How I thrive

To maintain a healthy mind and mood, I spend time with family and friends, cook, read, and watch movies. Going to the beach and playing soccer help keep me in shape physically.

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.
