I'm so sad. That Katherine Ishihara is leaving PAH. This is my first Telehealth doctor visit and I was great. And I'm very sad. It's a big loss for her patients and for you guys. So, I hope there's somebody else there that I can see. That is as thoughtful and kind. And genuinely invested in my health. Thank you.

I have had the good fortune of having Katy Ishihara as my PA for many years. She has always had my best interest and care in mind from the start. There has never been a question or problem that she has not helped me with immediately. What an asset she is to PIH.

April 13, 2021
I am a new patient to Katie Ishihara, so was hopeful it would be a good experience. She was more than wonderful. Listened, asked questions, and gave advice. Thank goodness I do not have many occasions to use a PA/Doctor, but she will definitely be mine from now on. I already called my niece to have her husband make an appt with her. Very happy to have found her.
April 05, 2021
Katie, excuse me, Katie is is really really good. She listens to me, and she asked me questions. She answered all of my questions. If she feels I need additional test or referral to another doctor whatever she is she takes care of that immediately it is so wonderful to go and see her and I choose Katie time and time again. Thank you.

Please provide patients itemized receipts. (Including online payments via remote check in.) The process to request an itemized receipt is conversion and not easily accessible. Receipts are necessary for medical reimbursements.
March 31, 2021
Always caring and completely helpful
March 24, 2021
My whole family likes Dr.Ish
March 23, 2021
This is my New primary. I wasnt happy when I had to change from my other primary (10 yrs) due to change in insurance. BUT, I am sooo happy I did. I never felt as comfortable as I did on my visit.
March 22, 2021
Yes Katherine Ishihara is very thorough and she is more than ready to refer somebody to see a specialist it, you know, because she listens to what is needed most for the patient and I really appreciate that. The only thing I can say is the actual waiting time calling the office, it is terrible, you know having to wait on the phone for 20 minutes, 20 minutes, 25 minutes is in my opinion ridiculous, and I have had the experience before where I have left a message. I'm going to have left my phone number and I never get a call back, you know to schedule an appointment. So then I have to wait on the phone for the 15 20 25 minutes. And that's it. Thank you.
March 22, 2021
I love Katherine Ishihara - she is absolutely hands-down the best PA ever. She is friendly and very kind.
March 19, 2021
Katherine Ishihara has been an amazing provider. I have always felt completely comfortable with her. She is always taking the time to talk to me to explain things to me very slowly.

I was apprehensive seeing a physician assistant but Katherine quickly put my fears aside. She was respectful and spent time brainstorming with me to find a resolution to my problems. I felt well taken care of. I would definitely see her again
March 09, 2021
Katherine Ishihara takes time to listen and had previously reviewed my record so she knew ahead of time the nature of my visit. She took her time to explain everything including reviewing my lab work and educated me on what doctors look for in blood results. She is positive and made me feel positive about my current health conditions. She genuinely shows she cares. I've recommended her to my adult children and they too have had had a positive experience with her.
March 08, 2021

Very friendly and quick with appointments didn't have to wait long in the waiting rooms to be seen
January 20, 2021
Katherine Ishihara is a wonderful example of what a heath care provider should be. She is kind, knowledgeable, and actually listens to her patients concerns. I went in feeling like once again, I wouldn't get the answers I've been seeking for 12 years just like every other Dr visit, however this time that was not the case. She addressed my concerns with compassion and understanding and finally ordered the blood work I've been asking of every health care provider I've seen for many many years who wouldn't order it. I finally got my diagnosis and can be on my way to finding a way to manage my pain and symptoms. Katherine will now be my primary care physician and I'm so appreciative of her. Thank you so much Katherine!
