About

Bio

I am a family medicine physician practicing on the island of Oahu. I am a graduate of Brown University and Dartmouth Medical School and a board-certified family practitioner. I am passionate about nutrition, wellness and lifestyle medicine and a current fellow of Functional & Anti-Aging Medicine.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
