Dr. Ronald Hirokawa

Dr. Ronald Hirokawa is the newest pediatrician to join our PCMA family. He is passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle when 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 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.

Dr. Hirokawa grew up in Honolulu and attended Iolani High School. He received his B.S. in Biology from Claremont McKenna College in Southern California. He returned home to attend the University of Hawai’i, John A. Burns School of Medicine and trained at many Oahu hospitals, including pediatrics rotations at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children and working with military families at Tripler Army Medical Center. Dr. Hirokawa completed his pediatric residency training at  the University of California Irvine – Children’s Hospital of  Orange County Pediatric Residency Program, caring for a diverse group of patients at hospitals in Irvine, Orange County, and Long Beach.
