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.

About seven years ago , I had joined Memorial Care and was given to Dr. Lance Hirano as a sub doctor, after meeting with him I had change him to be my primary doctor. He listens and I don’t feel rushed. Sharon his nurse assistant is always nice and patient with me, I give them both high marks, With the COVID 19 - they take all steps to make sure your safe. I have moved and now drive over an hour and a half to see the doctor,I am so impressed by this doctor and staff. I was wow - d and still has not change.

Dr. Hirano was friendly, approachable, attentive, and knowledgeable. He spent time explaining test results and stuck around to answer my questions. Availability for telehealth, in person appointments, or even asking questions via secure messaging is a plus. Overall, very satisfied with my experience so far.

Dr. Hirano remembers you even if you’re seeing him after 15 months, and his bedside manner is terrific. You feel like you’re talking to a friend who truly cares. He isn’t trigger happy with medications and is very thoughtful with his diagnoses.
