Dr. Ikeda has been instrumental in establishing UC San Diego's "patient-centered medical home" approach to primary care services.

Dr. Ikeda says, "The most important thing to me is the long-term relationships we create with patients and their families - from cradle to end of life - that are based on trust, understanding the patient's needs and educating them to make the best informed decision possible about their health care."

As a clinical professor of Family Medicine and Public Health, Dr. Ikeda is involved in training medical students, residents and fellows at UC San Diego School of Medicine.
