Welcome to my Web page. I am a third-generation Japanese American, also known as "Sansei," born and raised in Los Angeles. I believe in a strong work ethic and a sense of personal dedication to the care I give my patients. I look forward to greeting members with a cheerful smile and a friendly, happy attitude.
I became interested in otolaryngology because of its diversity of conditions and wide range of patients, from the very young to the elderly. My specialty has a good balance of medical and surgical treatment modalities. I speak fluent Japanese and Spanish, which puts many of my patients at ease because they can express themselves in their native languages.
My practice is in otolaryngology, which includes ear, nose, and throat; and head and neck surgery in general, with an emphasis on ear and sinus surgery. Variety is indeed the spice of life and challenges me on a daily basis to help members in the best way that I can.
A good relationship with my wife and enjoying my children allows me to help others from a strong foundation. For me, a balanced lifestyle with a good mixture of exercise and play has been key to building and maintaining a successful practice.
