Dr. Ronald Hirokawa


Dr. Ronald Hirokawa is the newest pediatrician to join our  PCMA family. He is passionate about promoting a healthy  lifestyle and caring for Hawai’i’s keiki. While Dr. Hirokawa  loves science and medicine, his favorite part of being  a doctor is really getting to know his patients and their  families and learning about their life stories. He believes  that raising a happy and healthy child is a team effort, and  he strives to develop a relationship with the entire family.  As a proud father of a young daughter, you can expect him  to treat your child as if they were his own..
