I’ve been going to Dr. Kanomata for 5 months. I love the way he advises me to manage my high cholesterol with food and exercise instead of harsh drugs. He’s always very attentive and concerned about my health. He’s a very good doctor and I’m so happy to have found him.

A knowledgeable physician, yes, but he doesn't really listen to the patient. His exams are too brief, and in my opinion he has a number of times submitted bills to the insurance company for more work than he has actually done. Asking for a referral to see a specialist is akin to insulting him, and it's difficult to actually get him to make the referral.

Dr. Kanomata has provided medical care to my wife and I on several occasions. I have always been impressed with the quality of his care and have recommended him to my family and friends. I highly regard Dr. Kanomata for his proactive approach to teaching lifestyle modification to prevent disease. He is a wealth of knowledge regarding both disease prevention and management. I have also been impressed by the way he is able to clearly explain complex medical conditions. Altogether, highly recommend
