Dr. Minami’s commitment to “kaizen” (the philosophy of continual improvement) is evident in the numerous accolades he has received throughout his life and career. He received his medical training at several of America’s leading academic centers, and has been recognized in “Best Doctors in America” and “Best Doctors in Hawaii” every year since 1996 (the first year that gastroenterologists were included). He was also named “Outstanding Physician of the Year” at The Queen’s Medical Center in 2000, reflecting his compassionate care and excellence in his field. Every day, Dr. Minami strives to improve his already-impressive technical abilities, and to incorporate new techniques and technologies to deliver the best medical care to patients.
