I was a Dr. Kato patient for many years. He was a very good doctor for the everyday ailments that a family experiences. His care and demeanor was excellent until...I continued to return and return for the same symptoms of a sore and raspy throat and a cough. I pursued this for many months which turned into more than a year and when it was finally diagnosed I had stage 4 thyroid cancer. I felt as if the diagnosis was slow in coming. I no longer see Dr. Kato.

I have been seeing Dr. Kato since I can remember. He has always been beyond superb. He has a calm, compassionate demeanor, and never seems like he is trying to rush you. The specialists he refers are world class and he knows the best guy around for just about anything. Can't recommend him enough.

I have been going to Dr. Kato for 28 years. I have referred many family members and friends. He is kind and has an excellent bedside manner. He explains everything well and gives you many options to consider. He was the only Dr. that my children knew when they were growing up. If you are looking for an amazing, well-educated Dr., who always keeps himself in the know of the latest things happening in medicine. Dr. Kato is your man!!
