Meet Our Staff



Yvonne Cox, LPN

I have been Matsuda Dermatology since 1985. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse and obtained my nursing certificate at Kapiolani Community College. I have enjoyed my work and over the years, we have become a family in this office and I cherish the friendships I have made with my co-workers as well as our patients.

I’ve been happily married for 38 years; have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, cooking and baking as well as spending time with my family. We are fans for our local University of Hawaii Football team and have been privileged to travel the country to support our team. Go Bows!

Avis Aono, Medical Secretary

Enjoyed the companionship and firendship with all my co-workers and most of all the firendship I made along the way with many patients.

Wife, Mother, and a doting Grandmother to three beautifuyl granddaughters (Ages: 4, 3, and a 3 month old)

Showed Siberian Husky’s and Shetland Sheepdogs for a long time ending a career with my Siberian Husky becoming # 4 working dog in the state. There was a lot of satisfaction in that because I bred my own Siberian Husky champion.

Sharie Pang, MA

Born and raised on Oahu, Hawaii. I’ve been working at Matsuda Dermatology over 25 years, but I’m still amazed at the new technology and advancements continually emerging in the dermatology field.

I’ve attended and graduated from Maryknoll High School, Heald College and the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

I enjoy lazy weekends with my husband, reading, traveling to new places, outdoor sports, and I am a “Foodie” who likes checking out new and recommended food and drink establishments.

Ansje Tsukayama, LE

After graduating from college, I decided to pursue my love for sin care and go to esthetician school. I have always been drawn to cosmetology, but skin care really stood out to me because I felt that my Health Science degree would be very beneficial towards my esthetic education: Chapman University, BS in Health Science.

Honolulu CC, Certificate in Esthetics.

Previously worked at an AVEDA concept spa, received training for many different facial and waxing techniques.

I Started working at Matsuda Dermatology in February of 2015 and I really enjoy dong facials to help patients feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s always a nice bonus to see the results after treatments such as Ultherapy, chemical peels, and developing an individualized skin care routine so that the patient is able to maintain their skin every day.

My hobbies are; Jewelry making, playing with my doggies P-nut and Butters, and traveling with my boyfriend(we love Japan!)

Babette “Babs” Kiyan, MA

Licensed MA for 10 years, graduated from Heald College with Medical Assisting Degree.

In the medical side of the practice, I love helping people and seeing them get better. Health and wellness are important to me.

But I also enjoy helping people achieve their best in their appearance.

I enjoy spending time with my family and doing outdoor activities like hiking and kayaking. As a mom, I am very actively involved in my son’s football, volunteering in all aspects with the team.
