Dr. Michelle Suber, Naturopathic Physician

Dr. Suber has been practicing in Waimea since 1998, when she moved to Hawaii to complete a 2-year integrative medicine residency program at North Hawaii Community Hospital. In 1998, she received a doctorate of naturopathic medicine (ND) at the National College of Natural Medicine, a four year graduate program; and in 1994, a bachelor of science (BS) in biological sciences at Florida State University. She is a broadly-trained naturopathic physician who finds satisfaction in helping her patients find sound approaches to many health issues, from weight loss and hormone imbalances to chronic medical conditions like diabetes and hypertension. Her experiences as physician and mother have convinced her that our health is largely determined by the series of choices we make on a daily basis. She is a trail and ultra runner, founder of the Mala’ai Community Garden at the Waimea Middle School, taught West Coast Swing dance & ballroom dance for 20 years, and is the mother of two wonderful daughters.

Dr. Aimee Baird, Medical Doctor

Dr. Baird joined Iris with over 24 years of experience practicing family medicine and a dedication to whole-person patient-centered care. Being a part of a practice that focuses on individualized care, prevention, and wellness, with accessible, unhurried visits is her ideal. She loves to build strong rapport with patients and has broad experience with care throughout the lifespan, in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Before moving to Hawaii, she practiced in one of the largest physician-owned practices in Kansas City. She attended medical school at the University of Missouri – Kansas City & completed her residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center – Shadyside Hospital.


Cheryl Chesnut

Cheryl has lived in Hawaii most of her life; it is home.

After working in the design field for many years, she decided it was time to become a more integral part of this small community of Waimea.  Joining the Iris team allowed her to do just that.  It has given Cheryl great pleasure over the past 4 years getting to know our patients and aid them in their journey towards the special integrative health care that Iris offers.

Cheryl is on the board of Waimea Outdoor Circle, and has volunteered and fostered umpteen times for the Hawai’i Island Humane Society. Gardening and all manner of pets have been her lifelong joy, along with  her two very active grandchildren who keep her young at heart.

Jami Milton

Jami joined Iris with a desire to foster health and wellbeing in our community. She values connecting with our patients and providing clear communication to facilitate excellent patient-centered care. She’s trained in biosciences (PhD in Biology) and has a passion for personal narrative writing. Jami loves being Mom to two kids, gardening, dancing, and the beauty of Hawai’i Island, where she feels very much at home.
