    Dr Kuwahara has been my primary care physician for about [..] years. She has always treated me as if I am a member of a partnership in charge of my health. I could not ask for a better doctor. I hope she doesn't retire before I expire.

    Efficient, prompt, and it was everything I needed. Test results came back the same day. Changes in clinic practices have made things smoother and more efficient.

    all recent tests were reviewed, this was a 6 month follow up to last physical to see how a new med was helping me. blood work was thoroughly discussed, plus i am free to review it at length on the portal and send dr any questions i may have. test i needed was performed and dr reviewed results with me on the spot. no waiting and everyone listened.

    As usual I had a rapid and effective response. It got an appointment the same day, was assessed by provider who was responsive to the concern, made recommendations, explained rationale, and provided prescription that helped.
