Dr. Shimamoto and his nurse Kathy were both wonderful. I met Kathy first and she put me at ease when I was having so much trouble with the breathing test and continued to be very kind through the rest of the appointment. Then I met Dr, Shimamoto who was also very kind and caring. He listened to me and understood how frustrated I was with being sick so much. He said he would get to the bottom of it. I appreciated that he showed concern for me and wanted to begin a plan that would get me better.

Dr. Shimamoto is EXCELLENT along with his staff John Gedell, PAC and others. My personal physician did not catch my bacterial infection&other issues. I struggled to breath. Went to an Allergist, 1st time in my life. SAN TAN ALLERGY & ASTHMA, Dr. Shimamoto put me under a battery of tests and quickly found several problems. After 3 weeks of medication and treatment I feel much better. They all have a very professional manner, kind, listening and awesome follow-up & costs are very reasonable.

Fantastic, caring, intuitive Doctor, with refreshing bedside manners. I am in the health field and it is wonderful to see a Doctor who cares, is informative, who is able to relay information in lay terms, who clearly loves what he does and does it exceedingly well.
