I’ve been a longtime patient of Dr Hirano. He’s the best. Always on time, never rushes through an appointment, listens to your concerns and takes them seriously. He’s also a very compassionate doctor. I was so lucky the day I wasn’t able to make an appointment with my first choice for a new PCP and Dr Hirano was offered instead.

Everything from check-in to lab work was smooth sailing and straightforward. Love how organized the process is as well as how accessible my info is through MyChart. And Dr. Hirano is awesome!! This was my first time with him and I needed a new primary—so glad I found him because he is very personable, warm and has a lighthearted/humorous personality— I didn’t feel uncomfortable asking him questions or giving him info about my symptoms or other minor conditions. You can tell he is very sharp and knowledgeable, and on top of all of my conditions. He also made sure to jot down who all of my specialists are. I’m definitely recommending him to anyone else who needs a good PCP.
