Great doctor for treating allergies and asthma. Really takes the time to make sure you understand and to answer any questions you have. Her front desk doesn't seem to understand my insurance and they always bill me incorrectly, but once theyget reimbursed, they've always given me credit for whatever I over-payed before.

She is an excellent doctor. I was able to get allergy testing and diagnosed in one visit. I did not want to do allergy shots so she recommended a medication that works great for me.

Dr Ogawa is polite and spends a certain amount of time going over your symptoms. Her staff, however, is very rude and treats you like an airline. A doctor's office is really only as good as the people they employ. Onthe diagnostics side of things, she is not thorough examining and seems to jump to conclusions without any additional tests. For me, a prescription without trying to find the cause of the problem is not acceptable.

She spent more time with me than I expected. She asked all sorts of questions to make sure that she was able to understand everything that was occurring. She even spent time going over my asthma, even though this was avisit about my allergies, since she wanted to make sure everything was working well for me. Her front desk staff went over the cost of different procedures before I saw her so that I could be aware of that, which I really appreciated.

I saw Dr. Ogawa-Reel regulary to receive allergy treatment for over a year. Throughout that time she was an excellent allergist and her staff was fantastic as well. She was extremely flexible with the allergy treatment schedule to accommodatemy work schedule. Her office was always very easy to contact for treatment scheduling or last minute refills for prescriptions. She also went out of her way and offered consultation for other symptoms I was having.
