About me

Hi, and welcome to my Web page. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to introduce myself and share some information about my practice.

Biography

I’m third-generation Japanese—born in Lima, Peru. I came to Los Angeles at the age of 14. A year after my family came to this country, my father suffered a heart attack. Being new to this country, knowing little English, and being uninsured, we felt helpless. I remember spending countless hours in the emergency room not knowing my father's fate. Fortunately, we were blessed to receive the best medical care, and at that time I made a commitment to help other families who, like mine, came to this country in search of a better life. While in college, I volunteered as a translator in the emergency room. In medical school, I volunteered my time helping uninsured patients at the Clinica Monseor Oscar A. Romero in Los Angeles. Finally, I completed my residency at White Memorial Medical Center in East Los Angeles, where I learned more about the major health problems facing the underserved population in Los Angeles and, more importantly, how to address the needs of this diverse population.

About my practice

As a family doctor, I enjoy treating a diverse population in my practice. My member population ranges from teenagers, who deal with problems like teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, to members with chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Because I’m fluent in Spanish, I can also devote my time to helping immigrant families through education and the prevention of diseases that afflict our community.

How I thrive

I enjoy training for the LA Marathon every year and also for triathlons. I try to share my active lifestyle with my members. I hold a weekly "walk with your doc" session where members and I walk for 30 minutes and then do chair exercises for another 30 minutes. It’s helped many of my members lose weight and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. However, what I enjoy the most is spending time with my two beautiful daughters, who brighten my day no matter how tired I may be.
