Internal Medicine - Primary Care
I am interested in preventive care, which includes screening, routine care and managing risk factors through healthy lifestyle changes. Although lifestyle changes are particularly challenging, I believe they can make a difference. I enjoy being an advocate, active listener and educator for patients, as these are at the core of maintaining a long-lasting and trusting relationship. For our Japanese-speaking patients, I am fluent in Japanese.
I grew up in California and moved to Portland for my medical training at Oregon Health & Science University. Over the years, I’ve fallen in love with Portland. I particularly enjoy the proximity of city life and nature — it makes weekend excursions easy and convenient. I am enjoying continuing my practice here in the Northwest at The Portland Clinic.
My work-life balance centers around good food, good laughs and good sleep. I really enjoy discovering new cuisines and plan to travel a lot for just this purpose.
