I am a former patient of 25 years. I can't tell you how much I miss Dr. Nishimura (I moved 3 hours away). I always felt so comfortable, like I was going to see a friend. He is kind, compassionate, listened to everything I said. If this review allowed ten stars, I would give them. I can't say enough about what great attributes he has. I now go to a physician who doesn't listen, is always in a rush.
