Kristine M. Uramoto, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to provide you with personalized healthcare, sometimes referred to as concierge medicine, which focuses on wellness and prevention of disease. As a board certified rheumatologist and internist who practices in Honolulu, I treat diseases that can affect the entire body.

As a rheumatologist, I treat diseases such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Psoriatic Arthritis. When treating these diseases, I take into consideration your whole body; and now through my affiliation with MDVIP, we will have additional resources available to us that can be incorporated into your treatment plans. Being that I am a female physician and a breast cancer survivor, I also have a special interest in women’s health.

I was born and raised in Maui and attended Baldwin High School. In my spare time I enjoy practicing Karate and have obtained a Black Belt. I hope to partner with you to create a healthy lifestyle incorporating unique and fun ways that relate to your hobbies.
