As we settle into our post-COVID routine of needing less office space due to drastic shifts to telemedicine, we have now consolidated all in-person office visits to Honolulu except for select appointments with Dr. Ka’ahanui who is occasionally available at the Kaimuki satellite office. You should receive instructions for where to go for any in-person appointments. There are a few providers who like to meet in person for at least the first appointment before starting with telemedicine while others are comfortable initiating telemedicine from the beginning.
The silver lining to having less office locations is that the vast majority of patients are able to maximize convenience with telemedicine appointments which are easy to initiate and still provide a good connection with the provider while requiring no parking, no travel time, and no possible exposure to illness. If you learned to use Zoom during the pandemic, it is easy to utilize telemedicine appointments. We hope that this ease of access will increase convenience and ability for our patients to receive care.
