Review of Dr. Arakawa

- in Honolulu, HI |

I've been with "Dr. Ken" for years. He is patient, intelligent, and caring. And he's an exceptionally good doctor, not least due to his steady compassion. Highly recommended!

Review of Dr. Kaan

- in Hilo, HI |

I have seen Dr. Kaan twice, in Hilo, HI. Both times he rushed through the exam. He did not answer the questions I had written down to remind myself. One time had to chase him down the hallway to get one important question answered. Dr Kaan also prescribed a $700 medication without alerting me. I was shocked when I went to the pharmacy. I am now looking to replace Dr. Kaan with a doc who will take the time to explain the nature of my problem and answer my question.

Review of Dr. Morita

-Kailua-Kona |

I am a little over 2 weeks out from an 18 hour procedure to remove an acoustic neuroma, which he performed in conjunction with Dr. Kevin Hadley. I am back at work part-time, which I never dreamed possible considering the complexity of the surgery. Dr. Morita was kind, patient and made sure that my husband and I understood every aspect of the surgery and my recovery process. Although every patient experience is different, I could not have hoped for a better outcome. Dr. Morita is the best.

Review of Dr. McDevitt

- in Kailua Kona, HI |

Dr. Timothy Mc Devitt is an excellent doctor, very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and he told me what he was doing every step of the way. He encourged me to ask questions. His staff was also very helpful and efficient. He took a biopsy of skin right next to my eye and called me at home to tell me the results. He takes medicare which many doctors won't. I am surprised at any negative reviews because I was so impressed in every way. We are lucky to have a doctor like him in Hawaii!

Review of Dr. Arakawa

-Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |

I don't think Dr Arakawa cares about patient care anymore. He's too old and if your symptoms don't fall into his 'box' of what his training has told him, he washes his hands of you. Choose a younger more relevant dr who treats patients as a whole person and not just a lab report. FAIL!!

Review of Dr. Smith

- in Kealakekua, HI |

I had a broken bone that didn't fuse. Dr. Smith installed a titanium plate in an attempt to fuse the bone. As soon as I woke up after the surgery, I immediately felt significant pain and pins and needles going down my affected limb (none of which was here prior to the surgery). When I asked Dr. Smith about these symptoms he "claimed" they were due a "nerve block" and it would eventually go away. Its now over 10 years later and these symptoms have never gone away and are worse than ever !

Review of Robert Aki

- in Pepeekeo, HI |

Dr Aki is the best podiatrist I have seen EVER. With my diabetic foot problems, I have seen many other podiatrists before seeing him. He has saved my toes and feet over and over and over to avoid amputations.. He's also an MD, not just a regular podiatrist. He can prescribe medications, do surgeries at Queens Hospital (the best hospital in Hawaii), and he KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING! He has diagnosed and cured me of things (charcot foot) that no other doctors even heard of, including my primary care
