Overview

Although my parents were born in Southern California, I was born and grew up in Chicago. Raised in a modest, quiet manner in a family that experienced the Japanese-American World War II concentration camps in Arizona, I always wanted to enter a profession in which I could help other people in a meaningful and compassionate way. During my first year in college, my grandmother lived her final year with terminal cancer in our household. After assisting my mother in her selfless and compassionate care for my grandmother, I decided to pursue a career in medicine. My passion and commitment to helping others on an ongoing basis led me to the field of internal medicine and to the subspecialty of rheumatology. In this field, I am able to help patients with many chronic diseases that may be painful, sometimes difficult to diagnose, and even dangerous. I thoroughly enjoy helping these patients in managing, combating, and coping with their chronic conditions.
