My staff and I thank you for taking the time to complete the survey on Healthgrades.

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. The procedure was done successfully and now finishing up on my final week of therapy, His staff is also a reflection of Dr. Mori's total commitment to his patients.. Mahalo!

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 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.

I would absolutely recommend Dr Mori to all.

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!
