Past Chairman of the Department of Medicine and the Quality Assurance Committee at Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Dr. Kako is a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine. He has practiced medicine in the Valley for nearly 20 years, and was initially drawn to Napa for its sense of community, similar in feel to his hometown of Turlock. Dedicated to his patients' well-being, Dr. Kako follows a few guiding principles: the best way to care for the patient is to care about the patient; thinking and listening outweigh technology; and his patients deserve his uninterrupted time and attention. Dr. Kako specializes in the prevention, maintenance and treatment of adult health and wellness.
Dr. Kako, his wife and their twins enjoy being part of the Napa community. Active in local soccer leagues, Dr. Kako can often be found coaching his youth traveling team at soccer fields around Napa.
"My husband was treated by Napa Valley Personalized Healthcare and I was very impressed with his care, so I started seeing Dr. Kako nearly two years ago. Dr. Kako is very patient, understanding and compassionate. He has gotten me though some very difficult medical issues and has a way of keeping me positive. As an aside, I also really use the NVPH flash drive with my medical history when I am traveling."
"Since Dr. Kako converted his practice to the personalized healthcare model, he has been able to spend much more time with me. I was recently taken to the emergency room and Dr. Kako arrived within minutes and spent several hours with me. It has given me a great sense of comfort and security knowing that Dr. Kako is available at all times. I truly feel that I have a personal physician."
"I have worked with Dr. Kako for many years. He is a wonderful diagnostician, with a track record of always being right. Since switching to a personalized healthcare practice, Dr. Kako has more time to devote to seeing and working with me. When I broke my hip, Dr. Kako served as my personal advocate, following me all the way through my specialist care and ensuring I received the proper treatment."
