I am a pediatrician in Honolulu, Hawaii practicing primary care pediatrics.
This website will contain information about the office, practice philosophies, and myself.
Important information about my practice
I am a doctor in solo practice specializing in primary care pediatrics. We believe in the Medical Home model in that the PCP (primary care provider) is the "brains" or "quarterback" behind all the different services that your child may need in the future which may include specialists, Early Intervention, and other community services. Besides the usual colds, we focus a lot on preventative care which includes immunizations, growth, anticipatory guidance, and the early diagnosis of developmental problems. Our goal is to keep your child healthy.

The goals of my website
It is my goal to keep this website up-to-date with information that is important to new parents looking for a pediatrician, my existing patients and parents, and little tidbids about myself. I will also be adding things like frequent questions I receive from parents and good resources on child health

11/19/2018: So far we have had low influenza activity for this upcoming influenza season, although the peak months of December to February have not started yet, and we had 2 influenza associated deaths. In this past influenza season of 2017-2018, the CDC estimates there were more than 960,000 hospitalizations and close to 80,000 deaths! There were 183 pediatric deaths reported, many of whom were previously healthy and unvaccinated. The thing about influenza is that it is unpredictable and we don’t know when the next bad season is. So please, get your flu shot soon!
10/4/19: Beginning July 1, 2020, additional immunizations will be required for students entering childcare or preschool, kindergarten, 7th grade, and post-secondary schools, and all students entering school in Hawaii for the first time, regardless of age. The updated immunization requirements conform with current national recommendations and reflect what occurs in healthcare provider offices and clinics in Hawaii as standard medical practice.
