My experience with Dr. Mori was awesome. He is soft spoken but very informative as he explained the meniscus problem in my knee. I remember that day when I had my operation, seeing Dr. Mori prior to the surgery helped calm me down when he spoke to me and gave me a reassuring smile. He made me feel that I was in good hands and I that I would okay. Maybe, he knew that I was scared and worried. When I saw him after surgery, he was also, gentle and caring. Thank you Dr. Mori for helping me.

I went from a very arthritic inflicted hip to one that allowed me to carry on an active, high level energy life. Dr. Mori explained everything both prior to and after the surgery. He's very friendly and efficient.
in Honolulu, HI |
Took the time to demonstrate the exercises that I should do during the course of my recovery.
in Honolulu, HI |
Very compassionate. Although my complaints were actually not related to his specialty, he took the time to explain the disease process, and how to avoid recurring episodes.
in Aiea, HI |
While preparing me for my knee replacement surgery, he was very thorough with his pre operation policy which I thought was excellent. His follow thru after the surgery was terrific. He showed he really cared about his patient's health and how I progressed. Because of him I think I healed quicker than expected. I would recommend everyone to go to him .
in Honolulu, HI |
I've been to 2 "specialist" and they did nothing for me, I understand that these "specialist" pretty much heard it all, but what they don't seem to get is that it's the first time for me. Dr. Mori is different, He took the time to look, listen and explain. He did surgery on both my elbows and my left shoulder (all at different times). All came out great and he made me feel comfortable each time, I didn't feel scared at all! I would definitely recommend Dr. Mori always!
in Aiea, HI |
Dr, Mori is an awesome doctor and professional who I respect and trust. His sincere care and concern during my office visits put me at ease, especially when I was told I needed surgery on my knee. He did an amazing job with my surgery that I am now able to walk much better with less pain. His efficient staff is very friendly and caring. Dr. Mori is a remarkable doctor whose compassion and kindness is truly appreciated. Domo arigato gozaimasu.

Going to see a dr. much less getting surgery is traumatic for me! Under Dr. Mori's care I was most confident that everything would go well. Thanks to Dr. Mori, his competent OR Staff and Office staff, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Mori explained everything clearly and in detail, never rushing me. Recommended by Dr. Lance Kurata (Kuakini) I also recommend this great doctor for successful surgery results. Dr. Mori referred me to Physical therapy; I am also happy with their care.
in Kaneohe, HI |
I would recommend Dr. Mori to anyone with knee problems. He is very caring and compassionate and takes the time to explain whatever your problem may be.
in Haleiwa, HI |
Great personality and after surgery care. My shoulder surgery was as good as it gets if you have to get surgery.
in Honolulu, HI |
Dr. Mori has an ease about him that reflected a sense of cordiality, trust, and quiet confidence. He presented himself as a good listener who made every effort to insure that I understood his opinions/decisions. I appreciated how he "spoke at my level", while he still maintained his professional standing. My appointed times were always met (sometimes, earlier). . . . . his staff was courteous, and his office was neat and tidy.
in Honolulu, HI |
Over the years I have been treated for a meniscus tear, and trigger finger. Surgery and treatment were both successful and I am back to playing tennis, golf, mountain biking and hiking. My latest complaint was a back pain which I had for 2 months and getting increasingly worse. I should have seen him sooner because he diagnosed the problem in his office, put me on medication, and in 3 days i was up in the mountains carrying a 25 pound backpack for 9 hours.(against his recommendation of course)
in Mililani, Hawaii |
I left a review on Yelp. Dr. Mori is a wonderful surgeon. Soft spoken. Takes the time to show me the MRI result and explained very clearly what needed to be done. My rotator cuff tendon was repaired flawlessly. My shoulder is back to new and the small puka's needed for surgery I cannot see the scar.
in Honolulu, HI |
The Mori was very thorough in his examination and explained my condition and options available for me very clearly. He explained what surgery entailed and together we decided that surgery was something that we would put off for now. I trust Dr Mori and his judgement and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Mori repaired my biceps tendon arthroscopically. Now I am pain free and back enjoying paddling and surfing. Awesome doc!!

Wonderful Doctor. Did excellent repair on my rotator cuff tendon. Incisions are so minuscule that you can't see it when healed.
in Honolulu, HI |
Dr. Mori did an excellent orthoscopic surgery on my shoulder, he is very easy to talk to, answered all my questions before and after my surgery. His staff was also pleasant and the wait time to see him was never more than 10 minutes. I would highly recommend Dr. Mori to my family and friends.

Had a partial meniscus surgery done in July 2016 by Dr. Mori. Dr. Mori is as down to earth as any doctor you could hope for. Pleasant, thoughtful, compassionate and professional.

I found Dr Mori to be an excellent provider and surgeon. He answered all my questions and explained more information on the procedures of both surgeries. His staff is very professional. I've had my right knee and right shoulder operated on with excellent results and quick recovery time. I'll be going back to Dr Mori to have my left knee operated on.
in Pearl City, HI |
Dr. Mori was very thorough in my diagnosis and we talked about options. Then did the surgery and followed up until I felt normal. It was a great experience from beginning to end.

in Pearl City, HI |
Dr. Mori was very professional, explained what was causing my problem and how he could treat it. He instilled a lot of confidence in how he was able to handle the problem.
in Honolulu, HI |
After completing my torn meniscus surgery, with Dr. Mori's consultation, I opted to do surgery on my arthritic toe to remove the cyst sac and shave the bone spur. Dr. Mori started out the morning with his wry sense of humor to lighten the mood and successfully completed the procedure in less than 30 minutes......much shorter than the waiting time for the pre- and post-op, which was over 4 hours! Again, I did not suffer from any pain, definitely due to Dr. Mori's surgical skill.....good job!
in Honolulu, HI |
I found Dr Mori to be an excellent provider and surgeon. He answers questions and shares information, which to me is essential in managing my health. He is very personable and approachable. My healing has been awesome, I am doing really well after months of pain and extreme discomfort prior to my surgery. He ensures enough follow-up with patients. I would absolutely recommend Dr Mori to all.

Dr Mori, I believe, thinks first and foremost of the wellness of his patients. I have been to other doctors regarding my musculoskeletal problems but Dr Mori's analytical diagnostic ability is one of the best in the business. I highly recommend him.

I am very satisfied with the care I have with Dr. Mori. He is very gentle and caring.
in Honolulu, HI |
I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee to clean out debris from spurs. During the surgery he was able to find out that I also had a torn meniscus and took care of it. He and his staff are always very professional. I have osteoarthritis, so I continue to seek treatment and have had quality service each time. Wait time is extremely short to none. He does not overlap his patients.
in Honolulu, HI |
Dr. Mori is no doubt the best! He is knowledgable, caring and he treats everyone as his own family. I am a coach and have a lot of athletes, Dr. Mori takes care of them and gives advice whenever needed. He educates them and their parents about injury prevention. He's seen as a role model by these athletes, often share his experience and insights of the medical fields as academic choice. He's always above and beyond! Also has a fantastic staff team in his office, warm, welcoming. A true Ohana!
