A waste of time
I felt really comfortable with the doctor. He was very approachable and listened and made sure he addressed your concerns.
Spent 30 minutes with on initial meeting going over complex history and did lab tests and set up appt for me for next day to review labs with me. Excellent start
Dr. Kimura was patient, knowledgeable, kind, and answered all my questions. He ran several tests to make sure he was correct in his assessment, and made sure I felt comfortable throughout the examination. My lone issue is the wait and the staff at his office. I had a 7:30am appointment and I believe there was one patient there before me, but none after. It took 25-30 minutes before I was placed in the room, and it wasn't until the doctor was about to come in before the nurse realized I was a new patient and had to fill out documentation. I had sent all documentation through Zocdoc prior to coming in, and had scanned my insurance card as well, but I guess maybe they don't review that information.... Sure they could be more efficient, and it was quite annoying seeing as they weren't busy, but the experience I had with Dr. Kimura is why I'll be back next time.
Very accommodating and seemed genuinely interested in assisting me with primary care related activities. I understand we live in a capitalist society but rarely have I encountered a doctor quite as friendly/thorough as him.
Since I had pre-filled out my forms on ZocDoc I only had to wait a few minutes. Dr Kimura did a nice job with our first meeting diagnosis.
An excellent first appointment. The proof of the pudding will be in the planned follow-ups.
Dr. Kimora impressed immeadiately with both his professional, concern and friendly manner. His staff as well all seemed infused with the same qualities. I would be most confident in recommending Dr. Kimura to anyone!
The office is closed for lunch from 1:30 - 2:30 so when I came early for my 2:30 appointment as zoc doc suggested, I had to wait outside in the rain.
Amy daughter and I were very pleased with Dr. Kimora's kindness and concern regarding doing all that can be done to help me overcome my injuries. Since I was in severe back pain, it was very hard for me to sit waiting for him for an hour and one-half. Nevertheless, I look forward to seeing him and his pleasant staff again.
Took time to get a good foundation as a new patient. Very personable.
I felt like Dr Kimura listened to me about my conerns and addressed what he could right away at the visit. I would absolutely recommend him to others.
Being new to his practice, I really liked how he and I were on the same page as to how to proceed with my issue. Very responsive to my input!
Completely irresponsible doctor when he is held accountable for any error or mistake he has made on a prescription. Would not interpret my lab results, not provide me a discharge after visit summary.
Dr. Kimura is a breath of fresh air. I have finally found a Doctor that is caring, smart, compassionate. He wants to work with you to make sure you have the best medical care available
Dr. Kimura is a kind and compassionate physician.
Dr. Kimura is by far the best provider I've had the pleasure of seeing in 10 years. He's a welcome ray of sunshine. He's very knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. After the first visit I felt as though a big cloud has been lifted. I have hope, there is no doubt in my mind that he'll make sure that I'll be around for many years to come and I look forward to many many healthy and happy senior years. Thank you doctor for being there!!!
It was a good meeting. First time we met.
It was a very pleasant experience, the doctor is very kind, and caring. And knowledgeable. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone.
He listens and truly cares about the health and well-being of his patients
Exceptional care for patients.
I'm so pleased to have met him and I feel so at ease that he will be my new dr. I feel like I'm in good hands with a professional that will take me seriously and give me care that is thorough. For the first time in a long time I feel listened to.
The wait time was a little long because the doctor had a patient emergency earlier but the receptionist called and notified us there would be a wait and offered to reschedule my appointment for the next day. I didn't mind waiting so kept the appointment despite the anticipated wait. Really appreciated the option offered.
The staff was friendly and conversational. Everything was handled in a professional way. The wait time was within an acceptable limit.
I am new in the area and was looking for a general practice doctor when I visited Dr. Kimura. However, it became apparent during the visit that he focuses on internal medicine issues rather than general health issues. He is probably fine for patients that have specific internal medicine issues but not ideal as a general practitioner. (I was also a little disappointed in his assistant since the assistant made a couple of mistakes when organizing my prescriptions.)
Great bed side manner, informative and helpful.
I did have to wait, but it was a first appointment with paperwork and such so it wasn't such a big deal. Dr. Kimura was just awesome. I have been trying to find a decent doctor for quite a while but time and time again I felt rushed, like they were trying to push me out as quickly as possible, whether all my concerns were addressed or not. Dr. Kimura took the time to ask many questions, allow me to ask questions, etc. He generally just made me feel comfortable and made me feel like he really wanted to address every issue I had. He actually looked me in the eye and told me he would do everything he could to improve my quality of life. That meant a lot. Also, you can tell he runs the entire office this way. His medical assistants and receptionists are all the same way. They are welcoming and all introduced themselves, telling me where they would usually be, what their typical roles would be, etc. By the end of my first visit I felt as though I had been a patient for years. For the first time in over 3 years I truly feel like my healthcare is in the right hands. It's a great feeling. Thank you Dr. Kimura and thank you to the entire staff. I have hope now.
Dr. Kimura invests time with me to fully understand my wellness needs. He engages with other professionals as needed and does not rely excessively on medications.
Dr. Kimura seems professionally quite good. This was my second visit with him and he treated my issues succesfully. I intend to discuss other medical issues that I have been dealing with very soon.
Dr Kimura was very kind and thoughtful while working with me. He took time to listen to all my concerns and had my bests interests in mind during my visit.
Mr. Kimura listens to his patients and explains things thoroughly when asked. He cares about your well-being and truly works to find a solution for your problems! What more could you ask for?
The dr. Is great if you do not want to ask any questions. He spends about 10 min. with you. He does All the talking, you do none. Over my dozen or so visits, I had to ask an assistant if he was done or co ing back. Done everytime, and on with the next patient. He ca be rude with his approach. I have stage 4 liver disease, and it's quite important that I can ask questions. Not with this doctor. Staff is nice enough, however right hand never knows what left hand is doing between Dr. and staff. Not at all a professional acting Dr. In my opinion. I happened to watch Dr. Oz on cable t.v. just before my termination of Dr. Kimura. He suggested that if your Dr. doesn't have time for you and your questions, find a new Dr. right away. My guess is that he spends 5-10 minutes with me on average though his summary papers suggest something all together different.
He was outstanding, really cares about you, glad I chose him
Dr. Kimura was caring, compassionate, listened to my concerns, and addressed them all! His staff was courteous and friendly:) I felt cared about by this doctor and his staff, he will be my primary care doctor without a doubt! I highly recommend Dr. Kimura:)
Excellent.Very caring and personal doctor.Friendly and accommodating. I have found a caring and compassionate doctor. I was interested in discussing with Dr. Kimura . So happy he is my primary care physician.
Very caring and personal doctor. I personaly feel that his professionalism is beyond expectations. I am truly blessed to have found such a caring and compasionate doctor.
Excellent. Thorough and takes a long time with you. Very professional. Friendly and accomodating. Listens to you, answers questions, offers solutions and advice.
He is wonderful and very caring.
After seeing Dr. Kimura for almost a year, I came to a conclusion that I am never going back. He would ask me to do some tests and come to see him and then he would ask for more tests and subsequently more visits . This was going on for months before I figured out that he is just milking me and my insurance. One last note, he will not spend more than ten minutes with me as he is always in hurry and one day he saw me for only five mins and told me that he has a lot going on and cannot focus on our discussion and requested that I schedule another visit, and guess what he still billed me for that. Along with the finacial burden, the sicological toll was unbearable as I thought there is something wrong with me before I realised that he is just tricking me in order to squeeze more money from my pocket. I am busy right now but I will definetly look into options to sue him to make sure that no one will fall for his unethical behaviour.
Best doctor I've ever known.
He tries to make the medicine conform to the patient rather than have the patient conform to the medicine. He is extremely patient with his clients. His staff is accomodating.
He made me feel confidant in his ability to treat me.
The doctor was fine, the office staff was a little disorganized since they had just moved.
Refreshing in today's medical world to be cared for. Dr Kimura is a kind, knowledgeable, sincere person and physician. So happy he is my Doctor. I feel confident he will develop a plan and help me to overcome my health issues.
Good and friendly
Dr. Kimura was very personable and attentive to my concerns. He made sure that everything I was interested in discussing was addressed, and he did so in a professional and personable way.
Dr. Kimura gave me the time I needed to explain all the issues about my health. He is very thorough and makes you feel comfortable. I could go on but just trust me that he is a fine doctor.
What a wonderful, professional, caring Doctor. I've been looking for a long time for a good primary care physician, and I've definitely found him.
good visit and informative
Did an excellent job listening to how I felt and how i wanted to be treated.
Best Internist I've ever seen. He's just a good doctor and very pleasant to be around, I feel like I'm in good hands. He's funny too!
I was visiting my son (I don't live in the Portland area) and Dr. Kimura was able to see me during my visit, which was greatly appreciated.
Exceptional bedside manner.
