Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shibuya "I wanted to specialize in an interesting field of medicine that saw the birth of the biologics which transformed the lives of many rheumatoid arthritis patients. Rheumatology also allowed me to focus on a disease mechanism that is affecting different organ systems. I also believe that rheumatologist should help their primary care physicians, other specialists and patients to manage their many co-morbidities e.g. weight problem, most of all - treating pt holistically with Intergrative Medicine."

Patient Comments (2)
in San Anselmo, CA |
Dr. Shibuya saw my mother for her severe arthritis symptoms. He was absolutely horrific. He immediately prescribed large doses of three different meds with poor instructions on how best to take them and then when she went back to complain of the severe side effects she was having due to the meds, told her she needed to see another specialist to address them. He is not sympathetic to his patients, hard to reach and completely dismissive of what his patients tell him.
in Fremont, CA |
Dr. Shibuya?s demeanor can be summed up in a single word, ?rude?. After several years of treating various joint pain via orthopedic physicians and with a blood test in hand that showed triple the normal blood inflammation, Dr. Shibuya prescribed Prednisone, Sulfasalazine and Alendronate. All of these drugs can cause issues and my complaints fell on deaf ears.
