I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I am a third generation Japanese American who was born and raised in Southern California. I attended medical school at USC and received my medical degree in 1993. After that, I completed my residency training in internal medicine at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. I have been board certified in internal medicine since 1996.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I'm also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health. I place an emphasis on cancer screening because early detection of some of the common cancers, such as breast cancer and cervical cancer, saves lives.
I thrive by staying active and eating a healthy diet. My exercise regimen includes running and playing basketball.
