Dr. Morimoto is an excellent physician and human being. My recent surgical experience was outstanding from pre-op on, and I enthusiastically recommend him and his staff.

Had recent eye surgery with Dr. Morimoto. The level of compassion and care are excellent. Doctor and staff are ready to answer all your questions and you do not feel rushed. Sometimes runs a little behind, but rest assure, you will receive the best treatment available.

While I had to wait only about 1/2 hour from the time I checked in until the time I was "taken back", everything was very efficiently accomplished. The eye exam was completed by a tech (I think), nice guy that knew what he was doing. And then over to see Dr. Morimoto. He was excellent. I felt he dealt with my eye exam efficiently and professionally. I would highly recommend this Doctor. He is very good.
