I grew up here in Fremont and went to Kennedy High School. After my undergraduate studies at UCLA and medical training took me around the country, Iím excited to be back home in the Bay Area. Iím so happy to be able to work in the community that I grew up in.
I chose Obstetrics & Gynecology as my specialty because I love the hands-on aspect of being a surgeon, but also crave the balance of really getting to know my patients and having continuity with them. I love the variety that my field provides, and as a woman, I can relate to my patients. I truly love what I do and am grateful to have found such a satisfying career that fits my interests and personality. I chose Kaiser Permanente because I appreciate the importance of primary care and prevention, and because patients are just happy here. I hope to cultivate a comfortable, safe environment where my patients can find a doctor who is knowledgeable and cares about their needs.
I have had extensive training in laparoscopic and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery thanks to my residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Also from daily use there, I have become comfortable using Spanish with my patients. My parents grew up in Japan, and I speak some Japanese. In my free time, I love trying new restaurants (and revisiting old favorites), doing yoga and staying active, and exploring all that the Bay Area has to offer.

Terms & Conditions
If you think you have a MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY or go to the nearest hospital. DO NOT attempt to access emergency care through this web site. An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in any of the following: serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An emergency medical condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
