As the first member of his family to attend college, Dr. Stephen Kato MD became interested in medicine while spending time with his friends at the dormitory who were all pre-med students. His initial interest in medicine soon became a passion, but it was during medical student rotations in the Pediatrics Department that he realized he had a gift for working with young families and children. With over 30 years of Pediatric Care experience, Dr. Kato specializes in treating children and adolescents who suffer from chronic illnesses including attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD), asthma and diabetes. Especially alarmed by the rising incidence rates of children with diabetes, Dr. Kato works tirelessly to help educate young families about prevention and control of this disease, so their children may live healthy, active lives. His lifelong mission is to provide comprehensive care for the children in the community.

I have been taking my children to Dr. Kato for 15 years now. He is an excellent pediatrician and I highly recommend him to anybody I know. He also has great bedside manners and is very good with dealing with the children in his office. I am glad to have met Dr. Kato and I'm happy that he is my children's pediatrician.

I love Dr. Kato for my care, but I believe the service now is bad in a sense of like, to schedule an appointment or even to talk is really bad... really bad service. Before you used to be like, more on point and more efficient. When it was Pioneer instead of like, PH something Health, but Dr. Kato is excellent and I've been with him for 14 years already.
