Dr. Kimata treated me for GBS. He notices things that many doctors probably don’t. Razor sharp intellect. He studies and reads constantly so he is always up to date with the latest information on very difficult to diagnose neurological diseases. His methodical approach makes him a superb diagnostician. If you ever watched the show “House”, he’s probably the closest Hawaii has to that kind of doctor. If you have a disease that has stumped others contact Dr. Kimata. Just be warned, he’s all business and not warm and fuzzy unless you talk about baseball! It’s not that he is uncaring, he just totally focuses on the medical issues. I believe that he saved my life, so I am eternally grateful. Definitely one of the best. Thanks to him I am fully recovered from my paralysis.

Dr. Kimata is a very an excellent Neurologist! He gets straight to the point when he explains things to you, He has no nonsense approach about letting you know what he recommends for you to get better. I feel at ease because I am able to ask Dr. Kimata anything about my health and he's honest, right to the point. I was diagnosed with ALS at a different Doctor/Hospital. I was terrified and looked up online what Neurologist has the most experience; it was Kevin Kimata !! He is very excellent MD!
