Dr. Tawni Gesteuyala

Hello! I joined Children’s Doctors in 2011 and my nickname quickly became “Dr. Tawni”. Born and raised on Oahu, I grew up on the windward side in Kahaluu and then attended the University of California at Los Angeles before returning home for Medical School at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine. I completed my Pediatric Residency and then Chief Residency at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. My role as a Pediatrician is to be a member of my patients’ healthcare team, working together in a partnership with both children and their families. As a mother of two beautiful girls, I love swapping parenting stories and truly enjoy getting to know my patients and their experiences. When I’m not at work, I’m spending time with my family, surfing or at least trying to, exploring new dessert places, and looking at Pinterest crafts I’ll likely never do. =)
