Dr. Shimotsu has been my primary doctor for over 20 years. There are truly no words to fully express how much her caring nature and level of professionalism has meant to me all these years. I can also say if she needs to refer you to a specialist, her recommendations are spot on. I simply trust Dr. Shimotsu. I know she's got my back. That is rare these days.

Dr. Shimotsu is an excellent physician. She will do a comprehensive medical exam and will get back with her patients in a very timely manner with their lab results. She is a very caring doctor and has been our family's physician for three or four years now. She is very professional, courteous, as well is, her office staff .
