Great doctor but the office staff will not answer the phone or return calls. I have had appointments canceled by them and I have a serious heart condition. I have a condition I may die from if I dont get the necessary medical help I desperately need!! Help! Get your staff together and be professional! ! Because it is a matter of life and death!

This office has not returned my phone calls for two weeks now.....what is going on......I am a patient who needs an appointment. There is only one phone number with the same message. Is Dr Shikuma still in practice
in Kailua Kona, HI |
Absolutely the worst managed front office I've ever experienced. Always late. Frequently show up for appointments where they aren't ready and have to schedule. Dr. Shikuma may be a great doctor but he needs to spend time managing his staff.

This man saved my life by doing all the proper tests which other cardiologists in Hilo failed to do. Originally had a Heart Attack with one stent, but they left two veins untreated at 60 % blockage via diet and drugs. One month later I could barely breath, but they found nothing.. Went to Shikuma who was wife's cardiologist. He ran many test with angiogram, and found the two veins 90% blocked. He scheduled me to fly to Honolulu and Queens for a double bypass. I would be dead now if not for him.
