Absolutely LOVE my visits with Katie Ishihara and Violet, her assistant!! Had not been to see Katie for about a year, as she had referred me to an endocrinologist, and I haven't had a need to see Katie. But it was flu shot time, and I was actually looking forward to my appointment. She is so personable and kind and, even after a year of not seeing her, she remembered everything and had a list of things she wanted me to follow through on. She's very thorough and considerate, and I hope she never leaves PIH!!
