We are a family of dr. Holmes patients.However I felt quite comfortable in k. Ishihara care. My daughters were unable to see dr. Holmes once and went to Katie... My girls raved about her bedside manner as they did with dr. Holmes! We are blessed to have such great medical care!

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

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
