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.

As a previous patient of PIH, Dr. Kato and his staff/team are in a league of their own. They actually LISTEN, treat people with courtesy and respect, appointments are made and kept in a timely manner. They are true professionals! Dr. Kato is so humble and kind that many others can learn from his impecable bedside manner. The only negative I have is that they are NOT FAMILY/GENERAL practice so I can be seen by them, also. LOL!

Dr. Kato, and his staff, are really good. And they always, I guess seem to look into his chart before we get there, so they always know, you know, what happened last, what's next. They're always listening to the patient. They're always listening to me, the parent. I'm happy with Dr. Kato, and his staff. Thank you so much.

I would like to see more color to the areas where children would be during the visit. I feel it would make them feel like they are there to have fun and not make them feel like they are at a doctors office.

Dr Kato is always the best. He always explained everything and always gives you time to explain what's going on with your child.

Dr. Kato's office is excellent. They take time with you. They know the children the nurses remember your name, they remember the kids and how tall they're getting. And as a person to person experience, I would recommend this location and Dr. Kato's office.
