She was very nice and very thorough...was told I would get approval for an ultrasound from the insurance but wasn't given any follow up information.

Katie is a very nice young lady. She took the time to review my history and informed me of some test results that no one had reviewed. My daughter recommended her and I am very happy she did.

I had see Katherine Ishihara twice and is very professional and knowledge. She doesn't rush and allows enough time to explain the concerns I raised. It's been difficult to find a doctor with these qualities. Be been very satisfied with both of my visits.

Very nice and professional
September 14, 2016
Caring provider
September 13, 2016
She had fantastic bedside manner and related well to my daughter. She listened to my concerns and respected that I did not want to give antibiotics if not desperately needed. She problem solved with me and came up with a different solution, one that could potentially actually solve the problem and not just make it go away short term. I would definitely request her again and recommend her to friends and family.
September 12, 2016
The Doctor and Staff were great
September 06, 2016
Staff was great.
August 30, 2016
PA was very assertive and genuine. I was surprised to get a follow up call the next day. Definitely impressed and grateful
August 29, 2016
She's good, but if you have to wait, I warned you!
August 26, 2016
Katherine Ishiara is the best!!!!
August 25, 2016
I would tell my family & friends that my health care provider was attentive, respectful, conscientious and pleasant. Also, I was pleased that someone from where I was referred to for physical therapy called me the same day to give me an appointment and that someone called me again to let me know what my co-pay would be for tomorrow's visit. Ebony was also very polite and helpful.
August 24, 2016
A direct phone number to doctors front office instead of recording would be convenient
August 17, 2016
Provide great the new tablets you have to use to answer the same questions of all the information you have in the system is ludicrous. And to have the young man at the front desk debate with me and argue and disagree with my opinion was unacceptable. He needs to go to some customers etiquette classws
August 16, 2016
very nice person
August 09, 2016
I am very comfortable with her and she has my best interest at heart
August 08, 2016

July 20, 2016
PA, Ishihara is absolutely amazing! I had a few concerns which caused my appointment to take a bit longer than usual...she was caring, knowledgable in explaining my diagnose and not once did she make me feel rushed. She has a great bed side manner. Great experience.

I like the way the Dr listens to me and checks me and not just assume what's wrong with me not just here symptoms and right away says u have this
July 11, 2016
Katie remembered me from years ago! She spent a lot of time going through some of my health issues and laid out a solution that would work in the short term and included some long-term options if needed.
June 28, 2016
Really listened and responded appropriately
June 28, 2016
They are great. We never have to wait very long and all the Dr's and PA's we have seen have been great!
