Petition Statement

300+ elderly patients, their family caregivers and case management agencies are fighting the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (HHSC) who decided due to financial restructuring to eliminate Dr. K. Albert Yazawa's position. Dr. Yazawa serves real people in need of medical care, especially the elderly on Medicare/Medicaid who other health practitioners turn away. He sees, diagnoses, and treats ailing elderly that we cannot let HHSC eliminate such a critical service to the elderly. Help us save our doctor so that we can avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits because a competent and caring doctor is no longer available.
There are currently 207 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

We are senior citizens, family caregivers and case management agencies fighting Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (HHSC) to get them to reverse their decision and renew Dr. K. Albert Yazawa’s contract. There are virtually no doctors willing to accept new patients, let alone patients insured with Medicare or Medicaid, and yet, this State funded organization wants to eliminate their Board Certified Family Physician who specializes in Geriatric Services, which will negatively impact over 300 frail senior citizens. We must stop them!
