Provider Reviews

I got stent placed by Dr. Hinohara back in 2015 and I have been problem-free since. He probably one of the greatest doctors I've encountered in my life. If you are going to undergo a procedure with him, rest assured. You are in good hands.

Review for Dr. Hinohara

I took my teenage daughter to see Dr. Berman for her severe acne. He was great with her and related well. He said he had a teenage daughter, too. He listened to her and gave us great suggestions for treatment. He didn't force anything on us which I appreciated.

She's family-friendly as long as your family isn't LGBTQ+, POC, or happy together.
