Sioux City |
I was referred to Dr. Kuwahara from my primary care doctor. I found him to be very rude and condescending. He used his tablet to google what he thought I had and then read to me from the google document. Pretty sure I could have done that at home for free. When I asked questions, he brushed them off and basically just walked out the door. The visit was a waste of time and money and I would seek treatment out of town before seeing him again.

I didn't have a pleasant appointment with him. I am pregnant with severe acne. He says to me " 1 in 500 pregnant women have bad acne" Really!! Might as well tell me I'm the only one with bad acne. Not something to say to a pregnant woman seeking help. I was then prescribed a medication and went to the pharmacy to discover it's about 300 dollars. Needless to say, I went home from the pharmacy empty handed and crying all the way home! Worthless appointment with nothing to show for it

Outstanding! He has caught my skin cancer early, kept my skin looking great and assisted my son deal with acne. Best Doctor.

Excellent bedside manor, very friendly. Very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions. I would without a doubt recommend Dr. Kawahara to my family and friends or anyone looking for a dermatologist.

I've been plagued with Psoriasis, Eczema and Basal Cell Skin Cancer. After moving to Sioux City from the Twin Cities, I was horrified and appalled at many of the doctors here. Dr. Kuwahara is so much better than most! He takes care to listen, understand the problem and has performed an outstanding surgery to remove skin cancer. I have complete confidence in him and have highly recommended him to friends and family. I'm thankful that he is my doctor!
