Katie Ishihara is a wonderful PA who takes time with you and listens to you needs and concerns.
March 17, 2020
Katherine is hands down amazing! As a female, physicals are never fun, but she guided my through everything she was going to do. She also gave me pointers to make my pap a lot more bearable. I have never walked out of the drs office feeling so positive, informed and happy. Also, I've had a tough past and she made me feel so comfortable about talking about it. Just knowing she wasn't going to judge and she only wanted to help made it easier to open up. It was amazing! I would recommend her to anyone. I'm so happy I got to visit her. Thank you, Katherine ! You're so best. Keep doing what you're doing.

She's amazing and sweet and always made sure I felt comfortable the entire visit and never rushed an answer. She kept the possible diagnosis open to really understand what was happen rather than writing me off. She allowed for me to feel like she really cared about my health.

February 24, 2020
This provider took her time listening to me and explaining the treatment and her concerns in great detail. She was very sensitive to my needs and even after the visit promptly responded to my calls and emails or had the front staff call me. She was caring and ordered more test to help diagnose. Since results came back normal she also referred me to a specialist in a timely manner.

I was so happy with my visit! I was treated with care and respect by all of the staff, and I was so grateful for the care that I received from Katherine Ishihara. She listened carefully and responded graciously to all of my health issues, and she gave me the referrals to other departments that I needed. I have already advised other people that I know about the care that I received.

Ms. Katherine is so knowledgeable, that in my first visit with her I thought she was a doctor. She takes good care of my health needs and is a wonderful caring professional. I recently had a change of healthcare insurance and I went with the one that would allow me to have medical visits with Ms. Katherine. Thank you.

October 01, 2019
that part of the office does not see patients on time. For all of the apologies, an appt time was available and I was not "worked in" and 45 min past an appt time is unacceptable

Katie is the best practitioner I have EVER dealt with. She always follows up with medical issues that I am going through and always reminds me to do certain tests because I tend to put them off. She gets results and always gives me feedback. She is open to holistic approaches and supports my effort to seek these out! I am so grateful she is in my life!
August 30, 2019
First time meeting PA Katherine Ishihara. Doctor was thorough and very clear in her answers. I would gladly see her again!
August 27, 2019
Her appt roster is simply too full. I will try for a first of day or last of day appt so as to get her full attention or I probably won't come back.
August 23, 2019
She was excellent
August 21, 2019
I was very pleased with my visit from start to finish. I was surprised to receive the physical FAQ sheet though. I'm glad I was made aware of what is not included in the physical exam.
August 19, 2019
She was great! Made me feel comfortable every second of my visit. I would highly recommend her.
August 14, 2019
I have the best doctor!
August 14, 2019
General health issues are fine to deal with here. Anything more complicated or serious, look elsewhere or get a second opinion. Expect abnormally long wait times.
August 14, 2019
Katie listened to all of my issues and asked questions to better understand what was going on with me. She is awesome!
July 24, 2019
I will definitely recommend Katie Ishihara to family and friends. Katie listens and addresses all of your concerns. She is understanding and caring.

Katie Ishihara is the best doctor I've ever had. She knows me as a person and always remembers me when I come in. She understands my quirks and works with me to make a plan that works for me.
