About Dr. Hosoda

Dr. Hosoda is Board-Certified in Internal Medicine. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Degree in Molecular Biology from University of Texas at Austin. She received her Medical Degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, where she was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. After an internship in OB/GYN at New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center, she completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Parkland Memorial Hospital, Dallas.

Emi Hosoda's love of science began early and she is an experienced researcher.

Most recently, Dr. Hosoda worked in private practice at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. There she combined a traditional internal medicine practice with one that focused on women's health issues and pre-obstetrical care of medically complex patients. In addition, she provided peri-operative care, preparing patients with medical problems for surgery and following them through their operative course to discharge. While at Presbyterian, Dr. Hosoda was involved in developing Continuing Medical Education activities to address peri-operative guidelines.

Wanting to open her own practice and live in a smaller community, Dr. Hosoda found Enumclaw to be the ideal location. She was amazed by the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside and was impressed by the warmth and competence of her colleagues in the community.

My Commitment to My Patients

I am committed to creating a healthcare partnership with my patients in a pleasant, service-oriented practice environment where patients find receiving healthcare a joy rather than a burden. Because I believe that is important to combine compassionate care with a solid base of knowledge, I am dedicated to ongoing education that will allow me to recognize newly describe illnesses and to treat patients with cutting-edge treatments available for their illness.

I believe that each patient is a unique individual who teaches me as much as I am able to help that individual.

*

I regard my patients as more than the clinical problem they present.

* I know that each person is a complex and fascinating creation with a physical, spiritual and emotional side, all of which require attention from their caregivers.
* My role is to be an educator and an advocate for each patient.
* I involve patients in their healthcare decision-making, to the extent to which they feel comfortable, through fully explaining the details of what is happening with their bodies.

My Commitment to Refering Physicians

I believe that doctors should work together cooperatively and that patients benefit enormously by physicians providing healthcare in partnership. I realize that when physicians refer a patient out of concern for that patient's well being, a timely evaluation is important to that patient's outcome.

My practice will:

*

Utilize flex-scheduling, reserving appointment slots each day for urgent and established patients and referrals.

* Provide timely communication to referring physicians.
